Creative Portraits Explained...
AlisonWonderland Creative Portraits are my Speciality, and are so much more than just a photograph. Each image is digitally crafted into an art piece, skilfully incorporating artistic enhancements and special elements to produce a magical and original image, uniquely personal to the client. There are different levels of editing possible, designed to best suit the clients tastes, requirements and budget, from background swaps and added digital elements with full composite blending, to a more painted look with some simple extra elements that simply enhances the scene as it is captured in camera.
These pieces of art are unique to each client and are for all ages.
I start the process with a Creative exploration session (a chat in person over coffee, or via Skype or phone if easier) to discover what my client is looking for in their image, sometimes they have a clear idea of what they want for themselves or a loved one, and sometimes they don’t!
Children often are easy as they have a clear and expressed passion about something at that stage of their life, whether it be Dinosaurs, Pirates, Fairies, Superheroes, Princesses , Harry Potter, Animals, Mermaids, Unicorns or a favourite book or TV show for example, we know what they love and are into, It’s a wonderful thing to capture this element of their life’s story and create an image for them and about them that Is a truly unique piece to treasure.
With adults and older children or teens, I create a visual storyboard (with pen and paper) then sometimes using Pinterest to gather ideas as a mood-board of sorts, to create an idea of what that person’s image will look like and what story of them their portrait will tell. It might be a deep desire or dream they’ve always had, or something representing their inner child, if they can think it, I can usually create it!
I have produced images that reflect many aspects of peoples personality, love of books, travelling, food, childhood memories, even creating images around old paintings or on the theme of a film or poem that means something to that person, it is personal for each portrait and i always strive to bring out the right elements to help tell your story in the picture.
More than anything this is a hugely fun experience, with Children the photography session often just feels to them like it’s a play session, they have such wonderful imaginations and are so open.
The setting and the outfits and any props are carefully planned for the image that I've usually already got in my head, I find just the right light and backdrop to be the basis of the image and the photography happens there, then I spends time in my digital darkroom creating the extra magic to bring these Creative Portraits to life.
If you have an idea that you’d like to explore for your own Creative Portrait, i'd just love to discuss it with you,
If you’d like one for yourself or a loved one but not sure of an idea, I can help you in your creative exploration session, everyone has a creative portrait just waiting to be brought to life, you just need to discover what yours is!
In this world of technology and automation I believe it is crucial to still be able to tap into our imaginations, have some fun, and create something beautiful and magical that is truly unique to you,
“I believe everyone needs a little magic in their lives, do you?”
