There is something magical about The Moment we take a photo outdoors.
The way the light falls
The way the gentle breeze dances across the skin
The birds chirping…the leaves fluttering
The sun flickering through the trees
It FEELS wonderful
And…the Place becomes part of The Moment.
It becomes part of The Experience.
People remember this
When you look at those images afterwards, you remember The Moment
how it felt when you stood there
when the sun shone upon your back
and how your bare feet felt in the grass
Or you will remember how the wind picked up as the dark clouds rolled in
Or how you laughed as we all ran to take cover while we waited for the storm to pass
When they look at those images you will remember that moment
You don’t get that from a green screen.
A digital background means nothing
because it isn’t a part of anything…
The finished image will be pieced together in a computer
But here’s the important part…
You will STILL remember The Moment…
how weird it felt to stand there pretending you were in the woods
Or on a path
Or in a garden
When you really weren’t
After you were cut and paste them into a scene you never experienced
You will look at that image
And feel no connection to it.
Because it’s not real… and you were never there.
At Frank Frost Photography, we believe in taking more than pictures…we photograph time spent together with the sun overhead and the breeze in your hair, surrounded by the people you love.
Take THAT, digital background.
