Anyone can point and shoot a picture that speaks a thousand words in a single cliché. But to capture a picture that truly sings involves a bionic eye, impeccable sense of style, and access to a book of magician's secrets. Leave it to the photographic virtuosos at Daily Ikon Photography and Design to capture every detailed note with today's deal: for $65, you get a one-hour on-location portrait session, plus a CD of 30 digital images, a $650 value.
Holiday card season is rapidly approaching, and the window to reach the mailboxes of estranged family members is closing faster than the inner eyelid of a horse. So, now is a great time to squeeze in that family portrait you've been meaning to take. Or save it for your life's next major or unexpected milestone, like your 1000th tweet or your baby's first sapphire heist. You'll have a year to use your Groupon, so there's no rush. Use it for next spring's senior photos, an upcoming "baby's first picture" opportunity, shotgun weddings, or as a chance to chronicle the growth of your moustache over a 60-minute period.
Capture the best side of everyone's faces with a relaxing and natural shoot in the setting of your choosing. With a third party behind the lens controlling the trigger, you can kick self-timers and well-trained dogs to the curb. Gone are the days of pushing a button and sprinting to get into the shot while an increasing succession of beeps adds bomb-diffusing drama to what's supposed to be a serene slice of life. Smile. You're on someone else's camera.
Your photographer, Anna, will meet you anywhere in the greater Nashville area to fulfill your Groupon's destiny. When you call to set up your appointment, she'll work with you to pick the ideal location for the mood and aesthetic you have in mind. The studio-less execution of your session creates a boundless backdrop to frame the perfect shot. Considering the fraction of a second it takes to snap a pic, 60 minutes will yield plenty of pictures. The best 30 or so shots will be put on a CD, which will then be personally mailed to your house. You're then free to do whatever you please with them. E-mail your new snaps to friends, post them on social networking sites, or go classically old school and have them printed at your favorite digital-photography processing location.
Legend has it, many cultures had an initial aversion to being photographed, believing that, in addition to taking their picture, the camera would steal their soul. This, of course, was definitively disproven in the previous decade, when various social networking sites revealed that it actually necessitated many hundreds of compromising photos of one's self displayed publicly to even begin to erode the soul. However, capturing one's image does have some metaphysical effects. What other cosmic events might occur when your picture is taken?
- An angel gets its wings caught in a revolving door
- All symmetrical organs quickly exchange places
- Reptiles nearby gain capacity for human speech, but unshakeable shyness
- Older photographs become jealous and appear to scowl
- A city on Jupiter is destroyed
