Digital technology has allowed for the introduction of many new art forms, just as Leonardo da Vinci once predicted on his blog. Upload a masterpiece with today’s Groupon: for $65, you get a photo-shoot package from Darla Photography (a $250 value). The package includes:
- One-hour on-site or in-studio portrait session. On-site sessions are valid within 25 miles of the studio’s Potomac location.
- High-resolution DVD containing print-quality images of all poses
- Six months of online photo hosting
Darla Photography founder Darla Cisek’s 30 years of experience include past shoots with NBC Sports and Macy’s, and a three-year streak of Bride’s Choice Awards from WeddingWire. Throughout one-hour shoots in a well-appointed studio or at a picturesque location of choice, a digital camera snaps unlimited portraits in both color and black and white, ensuring that visual puns will read with both humans and dogs. While designed for individuals, couples, and families, larger family groups of up to 10 can squeeze behind the lens as the shutterbug orchestrates a host of editorial and fine-art-style shots. Subjects receive a high-resolution, print-ready DVD of all images resulting from their shoot. Then, the snapshots will take up residence on Pictage.com for six months of private access, leaving ample time to decide between decorating the foyer with a wall of wallets or one refrigerator-size print.
