Though they hinge on the ceremony, weddings are all-day affairs that last from the first morning preparations to the final dance at the reception. When Scott M. Duncan covers nuptials, he only offers full-day wedding packages that include a mix of candid shots and natural-looking poses. After looking through the full day of pictures that Scott captures, newlyweds can preserve their favorite images as prints, in flat albums, on DVDs, or carved into a nearby hill with a laser satellite.
Scott brings the same professionalism to portraiture sessions, where he photographs newborns, families, and high-school seniors both on-location and inside his downtown Elyria studio. There, he can frame guests against chalkboard walls or various sets, as well as in the studio’s neighboring gated alley, which is replete with brickwork and painted murals.
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.
Regardless of which of the hundreds of Target Portrait Studio locations you meander into, you can always count on a similar experience. Tucked into Target retail locations throughout the nation, each studio boasts a staff of professional photographers, premium lighting equipment, and advanced digital cameras. The seasoned crew takes pains to customize photo sessions to suit each customer's vision, setting up desired backgrounds and props before guiding families and high-school seniors through a mélange of poses. Afterward, customers will work with a professional to personalize their portraits with different special effects and styles, such as black and white or sepia tone. They then pick up their physical portraits at the studio in 7–10 days. If they don't feel like holding their breath that long to see the final products, they can access the images in an online gallery within 24 hours of the session, at which point they can order extra prints for gifts, collages, and greeting cards.
