Statistically speaking, more people's heads get cut off in amateur photo taking than in magic-trick mishaps. Don't lose your head with today's Groupon: for $65, you get a professional photography session, one 8"x10", and two 5"x7" portrait prints from Monica Day Photography (a $355 value). Photo sessions are held in downtown Charleston, at the Riverfront Park/naval shipyard, in Azalea Park, or in downtown Summerville. Different photo-shoot locations can be used for an additional fee.
Monica Day uses her time-capturing machine to freeze moments in the life of posing patrons. Before the shoot, the experienced photographer meets with clients to get to know their personalities, to select a location for the shoot, and to discuss props clients can tote along for a more personalized experience. During the one- to two-hour photo session (a $250 value), guests can make funny faces, strike a favorite pose, or take pictures of the photographer.
The pic-snapper focuses on creating images in natural light, using the sun's pulchritudinous rays in outdoor settings. About two weeks after the session, the three gift prints (one image, a $35 value each) and an online gallery of the images will be available for pictured people to share with friends, family, and jealous daguerreotypers. The photo rendezvous can include up to five people (each additional person an extra $15).
