Portraits in Old Town Alexandria
Yes, many people know me as a family photographer serving Northern Virginia, Washington D.C., and Los Angeles. However, I like to create beautiful pictures for many other genres of photography. Like the photograph below, meet Crystle Poge - owner of Crystle Elegance Events LLC.
We meet at the Torpedo Factory in Old Town Alexandria for portraits. As many of you know that live in the DMV area, Old Town Alexandria has many scenes for amazing portraits similar to the picture below.
Composites or collages are so much fun to create. Flicker defines A composite Image is a picture that is made from the combination of multiple images merged into a single surface. You can view my other photos here. The pictures in this set are "constructed" creations. This technique often generates interesting and weird surreal effects.
Getting the best pose and controlling the light plays a pivotal part of the process, but really “playing” with an image after the fact to see what can be achieved is the fun part.
7-Year Old Milestone Portraits
What's not to like about birthdays...they are so much fun. Cake, balloons, presents; need I say more. In addition to all these great birthday traditions, a milestone photo session is another great way to remember yourself or your child's birthday. To celebrate Gray's 7th birthday, we had a portrait session in Old Town Alexandria.
