Chapter 4

First Impression….it is not what it used to be.
Today, with the dynamics of our cyber society, everybody and anybody can see you long before you make your grand entrance. Whether it is a job interview, a first date, a meeting with a prospective new customer, a new patient, new client, new boss or new employee…..they can, and will, “check you out” on the internet before you arrive.

When I see what first impressions many professionals are making on social media, LinkedIn, professional and business sites and even their own business web sites……..well, this is where a picture is worth a thousand words. Like the dentist I won’t consider using because his internet photo looks like a mug shot taken by the Lake County Sheriff’s Office. Or, the tax accountant I won’t consider because she thought it would be ok to have her profile picture be from that time last winter when she put her tongue on a flagpole. And the worst, the “Our People” section of a web site where they have published all the snapshots taken by HR for your ID badge. Ugh!

Ok, those are extreme, but I am surprised how unflattering so many professional images are on the internet. They are not good first impressions. In the world of professional photography they are called headshots. While, in many cases appropriate, it is not a very glamorous name for such an important image.

When I take professional portraits (headshots) I try to focus on making them as personal, professional and impressive as I can….knowing how important this one image can be. With all that said, still, the hardest and most rewarding thing for me to accomplish is to have my client say “Wow that is a really good picture of me”!

Here are some of those accomplishments:

Chapter 3

Sometimes it is extremely difficult to capture the emotions and heart felt drama of a situation in a picture….or a dozen pictures. So was the case last Saturday night.
Tricoli Photography was honored to be the photographers for a very special gala dinner.  The dinner paid tribute to an amazing, gallant young man…
Nate.

Nate was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy when he was 6 years old. Now, at 18, he is attending college, a math whiz and a budding meteorologist.

While Saturday’s gala was all about (and for) Nate, our pictures are about the incredible love and support Nate receives from his family, extended family and a huge circle of caring, compassionate friends.

Here are just a few of the moments of joy and celebration: DSC_0237 DSC_0197 DSC_0198 DSC_0212 DSC_0252 DSC_0272 DSC_0292 DSC_0346 DSC_0358 DSC_0392 DSC_0402 DSC_0439 DSC_0447 DSC_0451 DSC_0458 DSC_0467 DSC_0470 DSC_0459 We want to thank Nate for allowing us to be part of his evening…we were honored to be included.

Chapter 2

The famous American photographer, Ansel Adams, once said, “You don’t take a photograph, you make it.”
It is with that sentiment that I post my blog today.

I have a camera (l know, so does everybody) and when I press the shutter button the camera magically arranges millions of little pixels into a box. It doesn’t take a mathematical genius or an extraordinary artist to take a picture.
That is why, in order to make my photography special, and in the words of Mr. Adams,
I make my images.

1a I look for the fun and funny, whether it is teens or toddlers

2a Sometimes it means being in the right place for the special moments 3a And sometimes it means finding the personality of an inanimate object 4b I handle my senior sessions like models at a magazine cover shoot 5a And I find the intimacy of the newly engaged 6a Some of my favorite subjects are covered in feathers or fur… 7a 8a (2) …or sweat or determination 9a (1) I look for the beauty of an expectation or a newborn or a growing family 106 And sometimes I am just trying to capture the anxiety of a prince in waiting 11b So at the end of the day, whether it has been a senior session, a Bar Mitzvah or a wedding…a back-lit martini glass, a family of five or just a lonely frog and me…I like knowing that my images are the best I can make them.

If you know anyone that would like me to make special images for them, please share my blog with them.

Thanks for SHARING, Lisa

Preface

I think every good book should start with a preface, so here is mine. I am a photographer. What I try to capture with my camera is so much more than just a picture. I search for emotion, joy and expression…hoping my camera will find the personality of my subject.

When all is processed and posted…the very best images develop from the perfect “give and take”. The giving starts when someone in my family of customers gives me a little peek at who they are. They give me a little attitude. They give me a little smile or a pouty face. They give me that little twinkle in their eye that tells me how much fun they are.
I take it.

Here are the results:

Thanks to my family of customers for giving me all the opportunities to take such beautiful pictures.

Thanks for watching, Lisa
