I will be slowly moving away from online proofing sessions to in-home proofing sessions, as in you will come to my home to look at your photos from your photo shoot. I will not be stopping online ordering, or online proofing sessions for those who are unable to travel to me. I have decided to move in this direction for a couple of reasons. Here is a breakdown of why:
1) Most computer monitors, more than likely, are not color calibrated correctly and if it isn’t, what you see on your computer is going to be very different from what I see on mine. Plain and simple, the colors are going to look funky. I use special software that calibrates my computer correctly. When you are making an investment in custom photography, I want you to have a perfect product. Unfortunately, looking at your photos on a monitor that isn’t color calibrated correctly will not give you an idea of what your wall art truly looks like. I recently saw some of my images on a friends computer and I was shocked by the difference. Everything looked washed out and orange. This is not the first impression I want you to have of your photos!
2) Custom photography is an emotional experience. I am capturing the best of the very people you love most in your life. An investment in portrait photography is an investment in heirloom pieces that will adorn the walls of your home for years to come. I want you to be able to see those images at their very best. I want you to be able to talk about the pieces you feel will fit best in your home. A lot of people think of pictures in 8 x 10 sizes, but there are so many more options. I offer products that range from magnets to iPad cases and even gallery wrapped canvases; all your images on them. It is important that we are able to take time to discuss those choices and which products would be the best fit for you.
You will still get a password protected online gallery to share with family and friends. All prints and products can be purchased through your client gallery on my website as well.
I hope this gives you an idea of why I am choosing to move towards in-person proofing.
