By employing state-of-the-art equipment and a knack for capturing striking high-definition images, Dead Pixel Studios ensures that subjects will be portrayed with a music video's pizzazz. Dead Pixel’s impressive 2,300-square-foot facility includes an enveloping cyclorama wall, providing an immersive backdrop for aspiring models, aspiring married couples, aspiring high-school graduates, and aspiring adults (children). In between flashing spontaneous poses and smile-inducing eye twinkles, you can chill out, touch up coiffures, and apply fresh clown face paint with steady-handed precision in the studio's separate makeup room and lounge.
At Mhoner Photography, a husband and wife duo of photographers captures clients' cherished moments during on-location shoots. The team memorializes big moments even for tiny subjects, snapping shots of baby showers or children's birthdays. They also commemorate special events such as family picnics, weddings, and the dog's graduation from medical school.
Loyalty to digital cameras’ factory settings can hinder photographers shooting in unusual venues. Photographer Paulo Jordao teaches his students to manually adjust their settings to suit their surroundings during hands-on workshops, whose curricula also emphasize lighting, composition, and post-shoot editing. Open to all skill levels, the workshops can expand semi-professionals’ skill sets or aid parents trying to document their tots’ childhoods without adding extensive footnotes to their height chart.
When he’s not teaching workshops, Jordao, along with his wife, Peggy, who is also a photographer, can be found snapping photos of newly engaged couples, capturing sultry boudoir shoots, and shooting videos for special events.
