At Maui Photography we understand not only how important the portraits we create are for our clients, but also how precious each minute of vacation time is. That is why we spend time before the session planning. Knowing what portraits are desired makes the entire process easier for the clients.
Several years ago we had our portraits done on the beach and the photographer showed us 64 photographs of the same pose and told us to choose the one. It took us hours and was very painful. At the same time this was a great learning lesson. I decided that as a professional I know what the best images are and need to do everything possible to make the process of selection fun, and fast.
So after each session, I edit the portraits to just the best. Then project them on a five foot screen. It is easier for clients to view images on a giant screen, than in a 6 inch window on the computer. The software we use allows us to crop in any number of ways, and project at any size you can imagine so clients can see exactly what the finished product will look like before leaving the studio.
If there is a concern about an eye being open, or a smile, we can zoom in and show it detail. We can also talk about retouching. The digital world is a wonderful one with all kinds of tools to make portraits look better. Unfortunately once clients go home, it is not possible to project, talk about options, retouching, and size.
Previous clients have told us that coming in for the projection was one of the highlights of the trip and a great investment of time.
If coming to Maui, please give us a call. There is no charge for a consultation. 808 870 3686.
