Missing a Button?! Photo Doctor can fix that!

I did this business portrait. MONTHS later my mother tells me that she noticed a while back that one of his buttons was missing. Thanks Mom for not telling me sooner! I can't believe that two people who pay such attention to detail, over looked this. I do appreciate my mother's keen eye for detail. Apparently, I need to hire her to proof my work before it's sent out. Just like she use to proof read my papers in grade school. The point is, we all make mistakes. We are all human. Being able to admit this and fix the problem is even greater.

Anti Bad-Film Trend

This is exactly why I am anti-photo trends. This one I call- BAD FILM! It's what I coined after working in a professional lab. If we saw a roll of film come out looking like these images, we knew the film was old. I see many photographers doing trendy overlays and texture merges very well. While we let mediocre photographers who just can't seem to get it right, overcharge their $50 sitting fee including a disk of a bunch of overworked images on it. They look absolutely horrible on screen as well as in print. I wish this trend died off before it ever started. 

Here are some images from a client who hired a said trendy uneducated photographer. I don't know if she knew what she was getting or not. But she was unhappy with her images- and I came her rescue. I think if I wasn't ready to pop (with baby this time last year)  this would have never been the case.

Minus the poses, I can't fix stupid- these are good images ruined by overediting. 

Sorry to sound off on my viewers. I absolutely can't stand this trend. Some people have heard me say it many times. (And now you have, too!)

And here are your samples:

Product Photography

My friend Andrea in Jacksonville, FL makes some of the most beautiful cakes. Contemporary Cakery. She has a tough time making her cakes look as beautiful on camera as they do in real life. She sent her images to me and I made them stand out, as they were intended to shine. For $15/hour or $5/image, whichever works out better in your favor, I can make sure the product you are selling, is being shown as best as it can. Good images sell your products faster. Don't let bad photographs keep your business from blossoming.

Making an OK image GREAT!

Sometimes as a photographer, our timing is slightly off. We know when we will take a shot and at what distance. Occasionally we get shots where all elements are in place except for one MAIN part. The BRIDE is making a silly face. While some may love the spontaneity of the image, others may have wished for something less goofy. Problem solved. Photograph doctor to the rescue.

Missing Person?



Sometimes, we can't all be in one place at one time. So why not have pictures merged together? It can be done!! Crisis averted- Photo saved by the Photograph Doctor.
