Arches In The Park


Back in the day, when I opened my first portrait studio in Lima, this Pavilion was where we would bring the brides & grooms for their outdoor outdoor session.  A lot has changed in professional photography since those days.  But, I bet that the local pros still use this area in the same way we did.  The technology may change (a lot), but the basics of a good image remain the same,  Subject, Light & Location…..and the technical skill to render them effectively.  The Arches remain. If I was still in town, I am sure that I would have the children / grandchildren of the original families and brides asking to be photographed at this location.   Ah, the benefits of a studio background.

If you are interested in learning the skills necessary to become a professional photographer, remember that I give lessons.  The next term starts the first week in August. You may enroll by using the Paypal link in the right side bar.  If you  have any questions about the classes, please feel free to send me an email.

    The nice thing about photography today is the ability to use the arches image inside your software as the background.
    The portrait subject can be placed onto the background image.
    Of course you already know since you are the one who told me about layered images.
    The arches still makes a great background for studio portraits.
    Since you already have the image it saves you a 180 mile round trip.

      As you know, while we were there, I took several images of these arches. The one shown is the most dramatic. The others are much softer and lend themselves more to use as a background. And Yes, I will use them as backgrounds. Although if I had a portrait shoot in the area, I would still use them as a prime location.
