Fall is heading this way! It does not last long and I book up fast, so please contact me as quickly as possible.  It is also a great time to get photographs for Holiday cards.  I create custom cards so you can use me as a one stop shop.  I will post some of the available designs in a blog post later this week.

Another Holiday option is creating a custom book.  I can use your images throughout the year, portraits I take or a blend of both.  These are extremely high quality books I create and order from AuskaBook.  They have a variety of styles to choose from but one of my favorite is the Layflat Hard Cover.

Here is a relaxed senior portrait I shot along the Susquehanna River last week.  I am not a fan of the traditional in studio portraits.  If you are look for something different give me a call.

Candid Baby Portrait

I took this yesterday while my neighbors daughter was playing on the trampoline with her brother.  I was initially drawn because of her hair, but I notice her sitting down looking the other way.  I walked over and put my camera through a hole in the screen and said I have peanuts all over my head.  She turned and looked.  The natural moment is made because of the combination of the strap off her shoulder, the hair and the expression on her face.  I could never set something up like this and get it to work.  Oh, and for the title I actually call her baby not by her name.

Environmental Wedding Portrait

I of around 5700 frames from a wedding I shot at Wintererthur in Delaware.  I was very happy the couple trusted me to get into this non-traditional spot.  They were very good at posing themselves.  I can’t tell you how much time this saves.  Having to stop and show someone how to stand really cuts into your time.

I took this image Friday after a rain storm.  It was really had to focus on the dandelion petal with the wind blowing.  When shooting this tight of a macro image you have to be really patient.  Not only did I have to wait for the wind to stop blowing I have the get the camera in the same plane as the bottom and top of the image.  I will be adding this to my for sale gallery on Monday.  I have one framed and ready to go if anyone is interested.

A few photographs I took last weekend of my 11 week old bluetick playing in a cornfield.  The key to most images is a clutter free background.  The biggest difference between a professional and an amateur is the background.  Most inexperienced photographers see only the subject.  A professional looks at the background first and positions themselves to have a clean background behind the subject.

I will be taking a lot of photographs of my new puppy Annabelle.  Obviously, trying to print and hang that many images on my wall will never happen.  I book is a great option for multiple like images, of a new puppy, a young child or a vacation.  A high quality but affordable option is the AsukaBook Layflat Hard Cover book.

It comes in a variety of sizes and page options.  Feel free to contact me if you are interested in preserving your memories or having me document something important in your life.  John Whitehead Images

Wide Angle Dog Photography

I took this image this morning.  I have been trying to get something with my wide angle.  It was tough shooting without looking through the lens and making sure what I wanted was in focus.  I loved using my F4 was a waist level viewfinder. This was one of 200 frames most of which were junk.  The Beagle always looks this vicious while playing and the Bluetick is hard to get with her head up.  It looks nasty but they were have lots of fun.
