It’s In The Details

So you hire a friend photographer to shoot your family portrait and a telephone pole is coming out of the father’s head. Geez, Mr. photographer professional (?). You didn’t see that?

You shop around looking for the cheapest price for your headshot for social media purposes to find a job. The lighting was so harsh it showed every blemish on your face. Oh, well. The size of the photograph is only ½” x ½” you say to yourself, and no one will really notice. You are kidding yourself, of course, everyone sees that!

The bride spends 6 months looking for the perfect white dress for the most special day of her entire  life and she and her groom hire a friend of a friend not because of his/her expertise as a photographer but because they know that person and can seemingly “trust” that person. The inexperienced photographer blows out all detail in the  beautiful bride’s dress because of lack of experience with exposure.  Boy, glad I didn’t hire that person to do a professionals job!

The details…the visual subtleties are what separate the amateurs from the professionals. Does’ t that matter to you?!

Over the years I have had several headshots by Joan and she never disappoints. I am extremely pleased with my recent headshot. Joan takes the time to make suggestions with your appearance and posing. Joan’s personality (upbeat, funny and energetic) makes you completely at ease which I believe helps with the outcome of your pictures. Joan takes great pride in her work and is extremely professional and personable.
I highly recommend Joan Heffler with Joan Heffler Photography.
