Learn about Fine Art Child Portrait Photography
If you have always been enchanted by the world of paintings and you want a timeless, solemn, painting-like portrait of yourself or your family, combined with an unforgettable photo session, book an appointment and experience the atmosphere of old times with me.
1. What is Fine Art?
I once read a short and striking definition of Fine Art photography: an idealized, painting-like work characterized by a strong emotional impact. I think I was able to agree with every single word of it. Essential elements of Fine Art include dramatic lighting, mostly a triangle, already known from the Baroque paintings and Rembrandt, or even more dramatic split lighting. The painting-likeness itself is shown in the more intense-than-average retouche, the strong dark-light contrasts, and the frequent use of dark tones.
Beyond all that, what makes Fine Art photos even more unique? You’ve probably noticed that people don’t smile in these photos. This is not because they are sad. Smiling in photographs dates back to the end of 19th century when photography became commercialized. But usually this smile is not sincere, as people do not smile continuously in their everyday lives. A captivating, deep look can show much better what we’re looking for in painting-like Fine Art photos: the real character that lives behind the eyes of the person.
2. Where does the photo session take place?
The location of the photo session is my studio in Érd, where all the props and technical equipments are available. I look forward to welcoming you through hand-painted Italian canvas backgrounds and custom-made, quality dresses.
3. How to prepare for Fine Art Child Portraits?
The most important thing in case of toddlers and younger children is to make sure that they are well fed and well rested before the session, therefore, under the age of five, it is advisable to hold shootings in the morning. If you’re worried about your child becoming hungry or thirsty during the shoot do bring drinks and snacks.
As part of the consultation, we’ll discuss in detail what hairstyle and clothes your child is going to wear. It is a good idea to meet a hairdresser before the session, because it depends a lot on a beautiful and nice hairstyle.
4. How are images transferred?
I will send the completed digital, high-quality retouched, high-resolution images to you through Google Photos within four weeks. You have three weeks to download the photos, after that they will be deleted.
5. What is the booking and payment process?
You can book by transferring the session fee of EUR 50. In case of cancellation the amount of the session fee will not be refunded. Changes are possible up to 72 hours before shooting. The price of the photos can be settled after the session by bank transfer when buying the retouched images.
