Before looking through the camera lens, the expert photographers at Picture People spend time getting to know their subjects and establishing a strategy for conveying their personalities in print. Then, film-ready clients pose in the bright camera room, airing teeth amid colorful backdrops and creative props. Following snapshots, subjects make their way to the selection station to choose their favorite poses from their session, which may be treated with sepia tones, color accents, and decorative borders to suit any wall, wallet, wallpaper pattern, or trophy walleye.
Picture People encourages subjects to arrive 15 minutes early to the shoot and offers a variety of creative tips to help enhance mantel-dominating final results. The studio ensures satisfaction with a 100% guarantee on finished products.
At Depixion Lifestyle Photography, shutterbug Kelly Wain knows that the best pictures draw attention to the fleeting details: an unguarded smile, a tender glance, a whoop of excitement. She captures these candid moments during portrait sittings, teasing out each subject’s best features for preservation in an artful image. But Kelly’s work also takes her beyond the boundaries of her studio’s walls. Her action shots of dancers come alive with graceful motion, while the mirth of a wedding day comes out in striking black-and-white or dreamily saturated color. The studio's onsite portrait park also bursts with rustic, woodsy charm, inviting subjects to pose with granite benches, rough-hewn timber fences, and an animatronic Abraham Lincoln splitting rails just in the distance.
The Griffin Museum of Photography was founded more than two decades ago to honor Arthur Griffin, a famous photojournalist whose work appeared in Time and Life, and who was the first photographer to capture baseball player Ted Williams and boxer Joe Louis in color. The non-profit museum is comprised of three galleries, one of which is solely dedicated to displaying Griffin's own photographs.
In the main gallery, rotating exhibits spotlight contemporary photographers that have included Peggy Sirota, known for her striking celebrity snapshots, and a selection of picture curated by NY Times Magazine director of photography Kathy Ryan. Up-and-coming artists take center stage in the museum's Atelier Gallery, while Griffin's pioneering photojournalism fills the Griffin Gallery.
The museum also hosts digital and night photography workshops, where you can master being on the other side of the lens. It also sells photo books and other merchandise, including black-and-white posters of Fenway Park and souvenir mugs.
