    Hi Everyone, from ShutterPix Photography!

     

    ~Where You Express Yourself, Because Today, Will Be Gone Tomorrow....

     

    Welcome to my Photography and my blog.

    I am a Photographer in Corpus Christi, Texas and for the Texas Gulf Coast. I photograph for the reasons that you don't want to lose what Today brings!  Many of us, forget those moments that fade with time and we wish we had a photo that reminds us of the twinkle in your eye or the broad smile of excitement.  For me, I have lots of images on my computer but when I have a print in a frame, it is the moment I remember the joy behind that capture!

    ShutterPix Photography photographs Weddings, Portraits, Bridals, Engagements, Children and Families.  I use signature poses, and lifestyle moments to capture you and your life. Then, I add light or shadows for drama, and depth.  My passion is carefully editing my images, noticing which colors need to be accentuated or placed more subdued.   I enjoy getting to know you and your lives to portray your intimate and vulnerable side to life.  To me it's honest and forthright. Love is, life...your friend...your journey...your fears...your light...your darkness... your trials... your tears and more!  Why not capture your moments, all of them.

    This Beautiful Capture is in the eye of the light with my subject and the environment. I always retouch and play up the shadows and cast light either during my session or after in my editing.  My retouching on the faces are smooth with their skin a soft but medium touch, keeping it authentic and realistic, without losing the expressions and soft shadows.

    Hold hands as always a Family This image had multiple cars in the background that distracted from my viewers.  I wanted to rid the vehicles so that my viewers only see this family strong and united.  I wanted this to capture their love, strength, and togetherness.  I love lifestyle shots because they depict life at its fullest. They wanted the Corpus Christi Harbor Bridge in their image because it will be replaced with a different bridge.  Memories to capture and always remembered.

    Families ard Forever

    I use two external flashes, one on the camera and one behind my subjects.  I expose for the night sky in this image.  Then, I bring up the lights in my editing software and added a touch of saturation to the skies and colors to make them stand out.

    Unforgettable & Timeless These images are Timeless & Unforgettable in black and white. The memory is with depth, and passion, and the moments here, are undeniable.

  • Donald Jin Photography

    Hello everyone! Don here from Donald Jin Photography.  Let me start with a big “thank you” to Basic Invite for inviting me to be featured on their blog.  It's a great honor to be paired with such a great company.  I am a portrait photographer based out of Boston.  Though I enjoy all genre of photography, my passion lies with photographing people.  Unlike any other types of photography, portraits allow me the opportunity to interact and build a rapport with my clients.  Through this process, I get a glimpse of their personalities, quirks, and what makes them unique.

    Having met and photographed hundreds, if not thousands of people, I can attest that every person is truly unique and possess beauty unlike anyone else. It’s my job as a photographer to “see” that uniqueness and capture it through my camera.  It’s a tall order, but that’s what makes portrait photography so interesting and different than any other genre.

    With the proliferation of affordable and highly advanced digital cameras and smartphones, everyone, including uncle Bob and auntie Jane are now capable of producing great looking selfies and portraits. In order to stand out from this crowd and be a "professional" in this oversaturated and over-photographed market, I realized I need to offer something more, something not easily achievable by amateurs regardless of the equipment.  For me, that “something” is a carefully crafted photograph, an image that is made, not taken.  It is developed through taking time to understanding the subject, thoughtful posing, controlling expressions, and managing light.

    People often talk about having a “photographic style.” I would say my style has evolved, perhaps matured and hopefully improved over the past twenty somewhat years.   My mantra in photography has been boiled down to three ingredients: simplicity, uniqueness and lighting.

    Simplicity

    A wise man once said “keep it simple, stupid.” This man was indeed wise and spoke the truth.  I try to keep my composition, backgrounds, color, and lighting as simple as possible and keep all other element to a minimum.  After all, in portrait photography, there is only one subject that matters.  Everything else is a distraction.

    Uniqueness

    Everyone is indeed unique and possess a personality and beauty that is their own. That uniqueness and beauty can be manifested through a crooked smile, a shy giggle, maybe a coy look in the eyes.  For me, the process of working with a client to bring out their personality and capture it in a portrait is the real joy of portrait photography.

    Light

    Not all light shines equally. Light can be hard or soft, vary by color, intensity and depending on the angle and time of day, it effects the overall mood of the photograph.  Without a doubt, light is the single most complex but also the most important ingredient in a photograph.  Chasing after the best light is a lot of work.  It entails scheduling your shoot at the right time, selecting the right location, hauling strobes and reflectors back and forth but this is what separates a professional portrait from what comes out of Uncle’s Bob’s camera.  Not all clients may appreciate or even understand all the work that goes into making a portrait, but the end results should speak for themselves.

  • Two Acorns Photography | Brother & Sister Duo

    Hello everyone! My name is Andy and I help run Two Acorns Photography with my sister Janet. We are a brother/sister duo based in Greenville, SC and have been working together for a couple years now. I started as a stylized automotive photographer and Janet in architecture. She has a wonderful eye for color and composition and really provides the vision for Two Acorns. With my background I was able to bring a technical understanding and application of both natural and artificial light to provide a little more depth to our photos. Between Janet's extraordinary creativity and my technical expertise, we figured we would make a great team. Although we may disagree quite often on whose college football team is better, we do share a passion in capturing life's candid moments!

    When you start off in this industry and read the blogs and see the portfolios, you start to feel a need to define your photography into a specific category like newborn, wedding, family, etc.

    For us, however, photography is all about capturing life unposed and growing with our clients through the different stages of their lives. That's why we chose this family to feature in our post. From just 1 candid snapshot at a backyard BBQ the Ligon Family has been there from the beginning of our business. Fortunately we've been able to watch and capture these fun moments with this family ever since.

    For us it's important that these families just have fun when they are out shooting with us. The Ligon Family is the shining example here. It's so rewarding when you can look at these pictures and can truly tell that this is one very fun and loving family full of character!

    We focus on creating a casual environment with organic moments and sincere interactions. We love to see kids just be kids and see the love their parents have for them. It's wonderful when you see these interactions, for example, between a mother and child. You can tell they somehow get lost in the moment and it's that moment we want to capture.

    It doesn't hurt that the Ligons are super photogenic and happy! Look at this smile!

    We really enjoy shooting with the Ligons and this is why we wanted to spotlight this particular shoot. We are so fortunate that we have been able to grow as photographers right alongside this family and that we are able to share their love through our pictures.
