Photography in the Digital Era

Prints produced by a professional lab can be expected to retain their color for over 100 years when displayed properly.  Prints should always be your first choice when deciding on a purchase.  In addition to prints, Pixel Photography will now sell high resolution digital files in JPG format.  Will JPG's and the media on which they are stored be valid for 100 years or even decades?  Who knows but consider if you had purchased digital files a mere 15 years ago, they were most likely stored on 3-1/2" or 5-1/4" floppies.  When that storage scheme was replaced by CD's, how long were they around before DVD's became dominant?  Where would your precious digital files be now?

 

Nevertheless, I will sell digital files for customers who want them for several reasons:

 

  1. Social media is becoming more dominant in our culture and customers want to post professional quality photos on their social pages, websites and to use as e-mail attachments.
  2. It seems that everyone now carries some form of Smart Phone, Ipod, Ipad, or other digital device.
  3. Sophisticated computer equipment is now prevalent in most households.  If someone wants to violate a photographer's copyright by scanning a purchased print, it is fairly easy to do although it is illegal.
  4. Many customers know how to use Photoshop and want high resolution digital files for their personal use.
  5. Aftermarket digital products like t-shirts, mugs, plates, key-chains, etc. are available on the Internet and customers want to buy these products imprinted with professional images.

Why Hire a Professional Photographer?

Lets face it, modern digital cameras can deliver professional quality images and they are priced so many households can afford them.  Photographers often hear comments like "That's a really nice camera, I bet it takes great pictures".  Think about that for a minute - isn't it equivalent to saying to a carpenter "Those are really nice tools, I bet they make great cabinets".  In each case, the camera and tools allow the professional to deliver quality products to his customers but the key element is the person handling the tool.


Photography is about light.  A fundamental understanding of how to control and manipulate light is paramount to creating successful images.  For example, the ratio of light intensity between the foreground and background can give the same image an entirely different mood.  Same for the ratio of light on the model's face.  How about the direction of light?  What about the color of light?  Take a good look at your skin when you are in a wooded area, your skin is green!  Have you noticed that when you use on-camera flash, facial contours tend to disappear?  For this reason, over 99% of my senior images do not use flash.


Next, photography is about the subject, location and the "story" you want to tell with your pictures.  Professional photographers consult with their clients before the session to work out these important details.  We plan the photo shoot with a goal in mind.  Spontaneity always occurs during a photo shoot, that's what makes it fun but it's always done with an overall objective.  My sessions are lively, intense and a lot of fun.  We meet as clients but we part as friends!
