In the last 40 years, Portrait Scene's photographers have helped to memorialize special moments in the lives of thousands of children, teens, and adults across the country. By constantly working with families, they have mastered the art of calming toddlers and keeping parents still enough to say or even pasteurize cheese. Outdoor shoots make use of natural tones, such as those of crystal-blue lake waters and green, leafy trees. In the spring months, photos brim with the pastel buds of tulips and the shine of bluebirds applying makeup for the first time all year.
One man crouches low, weapon resting on his shoulder. Another stands erect, a pair of binoculars held to his face. An entire military squad of toy soldiers stands ready for eternal battle within a shadow box crafted by Neal Raffensberger. The shadow box is one of 4,000 framing options showcased inside Raffensberger Photography & Framing's red-brick façade, where professional photographer and custom-framing specialist Neal and his assistant help patrons conserve their most beloved mementos. Multitudes of frames, mats, mountings, and glass—including conservation glass that blocks 99% of color-dulling UV rays—come together to display anything from photographs and posters to jerseys and wisdom teeth. Neal, who first dabbled in photography at the age of 5 in his father's basement darkroom, also flaunts his artistic eye behind the camera in the store's onsite studio. Families, couples, and proof-seeking Bigfoots can capture history in portrait sessions, which use digital photography to allow for immediate viewing after each shoot.
A member of the Camera Craftsmen of America, Tony Cilento has captured images of families, weddings, and famous subjects such as Cher and Pope John Paul II. At his studios across the country, he oversees the extensive training of each of his photographers until he's confident they can uphold his standards, which have garnered him the United Nations International Photographic Council award. The highly trained photographers provide impeccable service while photographing birthdays, holidays, weddings, moms-to-be, seniors, and families.
Desired Focus Photography gives amateur shutterbugs the skills to capture images of children, sporting events, or wildlife and nature. Led by Sarah Kobunski, the studio offers an extensive collection of classes that break down the minutia of digital cameras and their sundry parts. Students peek through the lens and learn to manipulate lighting and visual composition. Classes cultivate the skills needed to capture all the treasured moments in daily life, from a baby?s first steps to a toddler?s first deadlift.
DRS Photography's duo of accomplished shutter snappers draws on more than 40 combined years of experience capturing famous performers to tutor pupils in photographic technique before guiding them through practice sessions at their in-house studio. Camera-bearing apprentices absorb rudimentary knowledge and skills during a three-hour course, such as learning about aperture and lenses, controlling shutter speed, manipulating different lighting configurations, composing exciting shots, and persuading Tasmanian devils to sit still during portraits. Subsequent two-hour safari sessions shuffle students among various studio sets based on different themes and images. Though not included with today's deal, customers can also browse an assortment of accessories, such as lenses, cases, film, and time-stopping pocket watches sold in the studio store.
