5 Reasons the iPhone will Never Replace the Portrait Artist
Oct 12, 2018 | By: Strauss Peyton
1. Someone always has to be the photographer-
How often do you get back from a family vacation or outing just to realize that you don’t have a single picture of the whole family? This probably happens pretty frequently. You’ll have plenty of images of the kids together or your spouse with them but none of your entire family. When you do remember to take a picture of the whole family you will have to ask a kind stranger and hope that this person can take a decent picture. Using a professional photographer, like Strauss Peyton assures you that you will get an image of the whole family where everyone feels comfortable and relaxed. We have mastered the skill of photographing families.
2. iPhone photos stay on your phone-
How often do you print an image from your cell phone to hang in the house? If you are like most people the answer is rarely or probably never. Our cell phones are full of thousands of images of our families. Unfortunately they usually stay there until we run out of space and have to decide whether or not to keep them. At Strauss Peyton we are dedicated to creating a special portrait of your family that you will see every single day. Your family’s portrait should be showcased in your home not locked away on your phone.
3. Planning makes all the difference-
Chances are most snapshots you take with your family are not planned out and the clothing and lighting may not be the best. When you take the time to actually plan a portrait session you will see it makes all the difference. When we create a portrait for you we help you plan everything from the location and time of day, to the clothing that photographs best. We have tips and clothing guides for you to use to make the planning process super easy. Click HERE to download our clothing guide.
4. A real camera is still the best-
We can all admit that Apple has made huge improvements to its camera since the first iPhone was created. They like to market their newest camera as a portrait camera. For everyday use Apple has created something great to snap photos of the kids in the spur of the moment and save those memories quickly. However, when creating a special portrait of your family you will want someone with a professional camera and photographic training. The portraits we create at Strauss Peyton are not just about the camera. It is about the experience of creating a portrait that showcases your family and your relationships.
5. iPhones are not indestructible-
iPhones can be easily damaged. A camera is not indestructible either. However, as a professional photography studio we immediately backup all the images we create and they are never stored on the camera. Most iPhone pictures are stored on your phone alone where they can be easily lost forever. Life happens.
The iPhone camera is wonderful. It’s awesome to be able to capture a memory at a moment’s notice. We encourage everyone to take lots of pictures of their family and capture the special memories you are making together. But, when it comes time to capture an important moment in your life that you want to remember forever we hope you choose Strauss Peyton to help guide you through the process.
