In the interest of trying new things (see my last post-I Photographed a Preschool!), I took an amazing online class in January called Everyday Films. To say I learned allll the things about documentary family films, would be an understatement. I have dabbled in the video function on my dSLR before, but never fully understood what it really took to create a beautiful family film. I can’t WAIT to share this feature with my clients. Check out my final project from the class:
Life With Marley from Lisa Turner Photography on Vimeo.
You are probably asking yourself, why did she make a film about her DOG. Well, when you have teenagers, you are sometimes lacking for subjects. And every time I took out my camera, guess who was right there. Marley! She really is the center of everyone’s universe around here.
So…if you have read this far, guess what? There’s a chance to get something for F-R-E-E. I realize that a new medium is kind of a risk-you are not sure what to expect, and my skills are new. So, to ease you into this process-I would love to give one lucky family a FREE documentary photo/video session. Yes that’s right. FREE. The first person to comment on my Facebook post gets it (local families only, sorry!). The next 5 families who comment, will get a session for the discounted introductory price of $450 (all inclusive). After that, the price will go up. I plan to offer this as an option alongside my regular photo sessions, to include both your family photos, as well as a fusion film of both your photos and video.
You guys. I sooooo wish I had something like this of my children when they were little. I mean we have home movies (which are currently all on tiny tapes that now have to be converted, but that’s a whole other story). But they are just that-home movies, with no thought to light, or composition, or the tiny details of our lives at that time. And for the most part, I am not in them. It’s wonderful to have beautiful photos of your family-but with video, those images come to life. Truly.
