After Your Shoot
Approximately one to two weeks after your shoot you will receive an email from Reproductions. They will be hosting your images online. I will select 400-500 of the best shots to post online. You will be able to create a favorites folder, see them in color and black and white, email them to friends and agents, and add them to your Facebook page. Additionally, you can have Maurice at Reproductions (646 502-3721) burn you a DVD or send a digital file transfer of all the high resolution images for $25 or $15, respectively. I suggest purchasing the DVD or file transfer, since I can't guarantee that I will hold onto all of the images indefinitely.
NEW SERVICE- If you chose to have me select my favorites (additional charge), please make sure to tell me before the proofs have been delivered. I will select my favorite images from your session and upload them to your own private page on my website. The layout will be very similar to a Facebook gallery. Each image will have a comments section, "like this", "share this", etc. You can email the link to personal and professional contacts and keep track of their comments. And you can enlarge each image for easy viewing. Basically, I've created a higher quality Facebook gallery for you, which you can link to from your Facebook wall. Click here for a sample gallery. A few days later, you will receive your full set of proof sheets from Reproductions.
*If you haven't received your headshots after a week, check your SPAM folder. If you have a gmail account, you should add firstname.lastname@example.org to your Contacts list, otherwise it will be blocked as SPAM.
After you have reviewed all your photos and selected the final image(s) you would like to have printed, the next step is to have your final selection retouched. We are now pleased to offer professional retouching in-house. For all of your retouching needs, simply reach out to my studio manager via email. She is very thorough, and won't retouch unnecessarily, but it's a great idea to have her look it over. She can fix hair concerns, distracting elements in background, opening your eyes if they squint when you smile, etc. She will send you both a low and high resolution version of your retouched image, for online and print use, respectively. Retouches can be ordered online via the 'Rates' page.
A brief word about image quality when reviewing images on the web: every monitor has a different color and contrast balance, and web colors are different from print colors. So the images might look slightly too dark, too light, too yellow or blue, etc. Don’t worry about that. Only consider your facial expression and the composition of the photograph (background, cropping, angle and clothing) when making a decision. Reproductions will color correct the image you choose for the best balance of color and contrast. Just use your computer to review the images, but don’t worry about the quality of the color and contrast.
Enjoy your photographs. Please send copies of your reproductions to-
