- a unique experience I call "photo journaling". This is where you have a life experience - be it happy or rather tragic - and you want to create a photo book that details your journey through the experience. These photos can be chosen from those in my galleries, or you can request a certain type of image to be captured. These are completely and utterly unique to each person, because everyone's experiences and how they deal with the emotions of them are different. It's essentially a way for your emotions to tell a story through photographs. What a fantastic way to showcase your personal journey of strength, perseverance, or pure happiness!
I'd also like to make sure that everyone out there is aware that any of these photos can be enhanced with certain techniques, like faux bokeh (blurry background, very clear subject in the foreground). Another option is called "lomo" (probably my favorite technique to use - based on a type of Russian camera and developing film in chemicals other than what it was meant to be developed in), it creates a stunning result, emphasizing otherwise casual photographs. It can be a blend of over- (or under-) saturated colours, over- (or under-) exposure, blurriness, vignetting, etc. It's great for candid shots of people, a very popular effect in wedding and engagement photos, and can also be a neat touch on certain landscape photos. For example, here are two photos; one is the original, and one has the lomo effect added to it:
