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 offers a variety of creative tips to help enhance mantel-dominating final results. The studio ensures satisfaction with a 100% guarantee on finished products.

A photo booth from Heather Dunn Photography can be a party-enlivening tool for birthdays, weddings, family reunions, and more. Rentals come with a number of extras, including a plethora of props such as silly hats and feathered boas, to get the photographed in the mood to strike a deadly pose. A trained attendant will be on hand throughout the event to make sure the booth is running efficiently and to suggest tried-and-true facial contortions. All strips printed are included in the rental, and the host receives a disc that contains every image taken during the event, so he or she can show family members every close-quarters shot in high quality.
Fun Photo Booths' stationary shutterbugs invigorate events by providing curtained retreats for mini photo shoots alongside prop closets that empower each partygoer's innate silliness.

The prop closet bursts at the hinges with exaggerated accessories including masks, oversize sunglasses, and neon feather boas.
Professional photographers Jonathan Mathis and Carlos Guzman nurture and support budding photographic talents with their classes and workshops. During the six-hour Point & Shoot digital photography workshop, budding shutterbugs maximize camera potential as an expert instructor discusses the basics of camera operation while shining light on the various camera modes, menus, and zoom features. In both Point-and-Shoot and DSLR camera classes, instructors also cover the fundamentals of editing, cropping, printing, and storing. At the end of each workshop, apprentices review their photos from the session and discuss them as a group, pointing out strengths, weaknesses, and skillfully camouflaged Waldos.

Creative Digital Workshops also hosts low-cost lectures and demonstrations to inspire communities to see and capture their worlds through a camera lens.
