Peter Rabbit Returns

Posted in Children, General at 3:11 pm by uphoto

Sample Easter Sessions ran last Thursday. The entire day booked up within 24 hours. We decided to do a trial run with the bunnies and our new set. Next year we will be offering the sessions to our full client list for 3 days. I can’t wait to see how quickly they book up for next year, when we send the invitations out to everyone. Here are a few of the samples of the images we captured. We are also planning on having the bunnies “pre-adopted” before we even start the sessions next year. Although most people may not see themselves getting a wall portrait from the Easter sessions, many of the images we captured would look beautiful as one of our new Impressionistic Paintings that we will be rolling out in the next few weeks. A special thanks to all of the families for helping us with the sample session.

4 Minute Model

Posted in General at 12:01 am by uphoto

Last Thursday I helped teach a class at Nashville State Community College with Instructor David Pavol. Students gathered to photograph the “Four Minute Model”. Each of the 11 students were given 4 minutes to setup a studio light, meter the light and then photograph our model Jackalyn. The students were also instructed to build a relationship with the model as if she were their own client. My part in all this in addition to providing the model was to critique the students’ performance. After 3 years of helping with this class Thursday's class was quite impressive. Each of them handled themselves well with the model, each one making Jackalyn feel comfortable. With a little tweak here and there we will have a group of serious photographers on our hands folks! Alright guys I’m waiting to see the results… next week. I will post some of my favorites.

This past weekend, we took in the 3 bunnies that we are using for our Easter sample sessions we are photographing on Friday. All of the kids in the neighborhood came over and played with them and watched them hop around the yard. These are a few images of Samantha with the grey bunny (her favorite). Yes the middle image is Sam sneezing on the bunny. If you are interested in the sample sessions on Friday just give us a ring at the studio and we will try to slide you in.

The shots of Sam were taken with my wife’s point and shoot Canon A620 I recommend it if you are looking for one.
