Photography Promotions for this Fall and Winter

Uncategorized

Fall time is coming up. Wedding season begins to wind down and family portraits start ramping up for the holidays. I like to get family portraits in as early as possible so that I can be sure everything is perfect for your holiday cards and gifts. There are a few things in the works that I want to let you in on.

1) I’ll be in the San Francisco Bay Area of California October 1st through October 12th for two weddings. If you’d like to schedule a session with me during that time, it will only be a $250 sitting fee (normally $325). This is for old and new clients alike so let your friends know if you think they might be interested.

2) For my Philly area buddies, I’m offering a $275 sitting fee for weekday sessions in October and November. Again, this is open to previous and new clients and I’ll be posting about it on my blog soon.

These SF and PA portraits can be any kind of sessions too: high school seniors, couples, trash the dress, family, maternity, children, pets… The sessions will generally be in the early evenings when the light is the best and can include outfit changes. We’ll head out to a beach, park, city street, home, or whatever place is important to you. Shoot me an email at lindsay@lindsaydocherty.com or give me a call at 415-515-3575 to go over details.

3) This is a big one… I’m offering a discount on wedding coverage on available dates this upcoming winter. If you are a procrastinating couple or know of one, contact me asap. November 2009 through March 2010 weddings will get $500 off their package and 6 extra sides in their album (worth $294).

So there you have it. Big things are coming in with this chilly weather.

See you soon!

Adobe Photoshop CS5’s Content Aware Tool lets me down
Like many, I was totally wowed by the previews for Adobe Photoshop CS5's content aware tool. It looked simply amazing for removing distracting elements and filling in the area perfectly.And then I completely forgot about this functionality until tonight when I decided to test it out on this image:The exit sign isn't the end of the world but it doesn't exactly add to the décor.I used the lasso tool to select the sign.Then edit > fill > content aware and got this:Um, no. Ctrl+z and tried again:Argh!No dice. Back to the manual clone stamp route. Bummer.Then a little bit of gaussian blur.Here's the before/after*:For some fantastic uses of the ...

Senior Ambassador Shoot in Piedmont
So I don't know if I've mentioned how much fun it is to do senior shoots. If I haven't said it before – I LOVE SENIOR SHOOTS! Some photographers feel that teens can't open up and really show themselves but I haven't found that to be true at all. Last week I did a shoot with Mimi (a nickname that came about from her toddler years of saying "me, me") at Piedmont Community Center and it couldn't have gone better.Mimi is one another of my Senior Ambassadors, this time from The Head-Royce School in Oakland. Mimi has this look that seemed like a combination of Felicity's Keri Russell and Mariah Carey, in her pre-Glitter days.She has quite a fe ...
