Snap and Burn Photography

“What is Snap and Burn Photography?” you ask. Well, it’s exactly what it sounds like. A photographer snaps a picture and burns it onto a DVD for the client. Simple. And easy. And usually cheap. But it really is a case of getting what you pay for. Anyone who can afford to offer a session fee and all the digital images for a really low price (like $50) is doing what I am calling, Snap and Burn.

“So what’s wrong with that?” you ask. First of all, think of the word “snap” and what it  means. What it makes me think of in regards to photography is  someone taking photos without much thought to posing, lighting and how people will look best. Snap, it’s done. The photographer’s workflow is simple. Snap it and then burn the images onto a DVD and sell it.

Look at these 2 images:

I posed this young girl so that the wind would be blowing her hair out of her eyes and so that she would be backlit. I made sure that there weren’t any trees growing out of her head. It’s a pleasing composition, but it I knew it could be better, so I lightened her face, removed the blemishes, brightened up her eyes and cropped the unnecessary background out of the picture. Doesn’t she look great!

I don’t do a complete edit on all of the images in your gallery. I will fully edit the ones that appear in my blog, as well as a few others. Once you give me your order, I will do further editing on the images that you order if it is necessary. You can also make requests for editing.  I will let you know if there is an additional cost for any editing that you would like before doing it. Most of the time, it is included in the price!
