…to deck your halls with photographic artwork.
I was trying to be creative with the title, but it comes across more like a shameless plug!
One of my dear clients ordered a 10×20 storyboard from her last year’s photoshoot. With each storyboard creation, clients get to preview the design before I send it to the lab for [...]

…to deck your halls with photographic artwork.
Of all my new products, this is what I’m most excited about!
I’ve looked all year for albums that I can put my name on. I wanted albums that looked polished and modern, not stuffy and boring. I wanted albums where images were printed directly on the pages — thick pages, not the thin magazine-style pages [...]
For Author Mia King, I took some product shots of her ceramic “live simply” sign.
Since the message was about the simplicity of life, I wanted the environment (or backdrop) of the product to match. So I took a walk around to find some earthy things to hang the sign on. I can’t decide which one [...]
One of my Los Angeles clients just sent me photos of her wall gallery that she created for her livingroom.
As I advise all my clients who purchase their images on CD, you are welcome to print photos yourself at a lab of your choice, but for artwork you plan to display, you will get much [...]
I found the best company for Standouts! They use a black plastic edge, so they are more durable and have a more finished quality than other standouts I’ve seen. I’m very excited to introduce this product to my clients!
Standouts are prints mounted on a thick lightweight board with a black hard plastic edge. The old [...]
Canvas galleries instantly turn a photo you love into a unique modern work of art to hang on your wall!
It also makes a fantastic birthday gift, anniversary gift, or a Mother’s Day or Father’s Day gift.
Here’s an example of one….
I am holding a 16×24″ canvas-wrapped gallery with black edges. It is really heavy and sturdy, [...]
**SPECIAL POST FOR A CLIENT**
Hi Maria! I worked on image #1836 to the aspect ratio of 8×10, the size you wanted me to print. I also know you wanted the image cropped in, so it would highlight the girls more.
For comparison, I’ve included the original, the version you asked for, and an alternative suggestion….
THE ORIGINAL [...]
It seems like many of you are interested in seeing examples of oomph-ified images! That’s what I call images I post-process to get them print-ready.
If any of you are wondering why you should print your images through me (even if you’ve purchased a CD), it’s because you get professional-grade prints AND most importantly, you get [...]
I get a lot of clients who ask what the difference is between oomph-ified (aka, major post-production editing) and regular, straight-out-of-the-camera images. So I thought I’d give some more examples!
The photo below is an example of a photo that had lighting issues. It was a super sunny day, so we stayed in the shade. The [...]
CD of Gallery Images
When you order a CD of Gallery Images, this is what you get:
1. High resolution images in JPG, so you can print your images as large as your heart’s content!
2. You get ALL the photos in your client gallery!
3. A custom-designed CD! The top of your CD is laser-inscribed with details of [...]
I went to San Francisco to hang out with my good friend, Ivan – a pulmonary doctor by day, art collector and travel photographer by night.
This is what’s called “A Day In The Life” where a photographer follows someone (or a couple) around for a few hours and basically captures their life on camera. I [...]
I’m turning a new leaf in ‘09. I am now a believer in Photoshop!
For most of ‘08, I did what I call “light editing” on client galleries: necessary cropping, a bump in saturation, tweaking of contrast. I never believed in changing the facts — and still don’t — such as removing a tag or creating [...]
For the final stage, Steph wanted a few tweaks to a couple versions I had in my previous blog. Here they are, Steph!
3 Photos – Version D
My Comments: Here is the 3 photo format with a different combination. It was hard to make this fit because you can only have 1 horizontal photo in a [...]
This post is specifically designed for a client (Hi Steph!!!) who wants to decide between a few photo combo variations for her storyboards.
Drum roll please…
3 Photos – Version A
My Comments: These are the photos you chose. You can only choose 1 horizontal photo, but you chose 2 horizontal photos and 1 vertical photo for the [...]
I am sooo excited about these holiday cards! They are one-of-a-kind creations (by moi) on 4×8 photographic paper. I made them just the way I like ‘em: simple, clean and modern. No cartoons of Santa or Rudolph (though I think they’re both cute).
I included both vertical and horizontal samples, so you can see [...]
