Each plan comes with a number of high-resolution print quality files. If you would like me to edit additional photos, I'm happy to do so.
After choosing the plan that fits your needs, here is what you can expect - from the time you step in front of the camera to when you receive your lovely memories:
- The first step is your photo session... relax and have fun! During a typically session, I'll take around 300-500 photos.
- After the session is over, that's when my real work begins. From all the photos I took, I'll sort through and choose the best ones (around 50 or more) for you to view on my website. You'll find them in your client gallery. Since I'll be doing light touch-up editing on all of these, it'll take a few days.
- Now it's your turn to look through and select your favorite photos for me to do some deep editing on. Creating high-resolution print quality edited photos can be quite time consuming so I ask that you be patient and allow at least a week before the photos are ready for download. Examples of the kind of work I'll be doing include enhancing the lighting, color, and contrast; removing unwanted or distracting elements like telephone poles, large rocks or stray hair; and beautifying the overall look of the subject including skin tone, hair, eyes with special attention paid to your gorgeous kimono, of course!
- Once I'm finished, this group of photos will be posted to a new secure client gallery for you to review and download. Please note that all the photos that you didn't select will still be available in your original session folder for about a month. Take your time looking at these and if you find more that you'd like to have, just let me know.
THE TOOLS OF MY TRADE
For those who like the technical details, I will be using a Cannon EOS EOS R6 full-frame camera. Then, depending on the situation, a couple of my favorite lenses to use are the a Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L II USM lens, Canon EF 85mm f/1.4L IS USM or a Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM lens.
For editing, I use the Creative Cloud versions of both Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom. Then, when I save your files, I'll use the JPEG format. If you would like something other than JPEG, just ask.
