Great Giveaway!!!

Oh yeah, I did! I am giving away the best prize ever (in my opinion)! I contacted Color Inc. and told them that, as a photographer and blogger, I would love to do a review and giveaway of one of their products and I am so glad I did! Here is a little about Color Inc. in their own words:

My name is Tim Kasberger, president of Color Incorporated (ColorInc). My wife and I started Tim Kasberger Photography in March of 1998. In spring of 1999 we attended PMA, and what interested us the most was the digital technology. At Tim Kasberger Photography we embraced the technology and began to shoot digital. In 2001 we shot all digital, and by 2002 we were handling all of our own color management and retouching. In the spring of 2003, we helped several local photographers make the transition from film to digital, upping their profits and providing a better understanding of the technology.

In January of 2003 the Lord put on my heart to start a full service digital lab that is founded on helping other photographers experience the same success as we have through education, networking, and marketing. Our commitment to you is to provide you with the best digital product at the best possible price. We welcome you to the ColorInc family.

If there is anything that we can help you with, be it white balance issues or how to get started in digital photography, please - don't hesitate to call.

God Bless,
Tim & Deanna Kasberger

Now on to the good stuff!! I decided to review a gallery wrap because, as a photographer, I am always looking for a great way to display my art. I am also looking for cutting edge products to offer clients as an add on service. So, I set up my account and began uploading photos that I was considering for the wrap (I had several). The beauty of the site was the ease with which I could see which of my photos would work for a wrap and which would not! I placed my order and then waited (not so patiently) excitedly for my print to be delivered to my door!

When it arrived, I was like a kid at Christmas! Seriously, I could not get into the box fast enough especially since it was packed in such a manner to protect the precious contents inside! A+ on the packing! When I got the package open I was amazed at how great my photo looked! I was so happy! The craftsmanship was second to none! A+ all the way around for Color Inc.

They offer lots of other services like prints, books, retouching, etc. They are a full service lab and I will be sending them all of my work!!

Savanna's Senior Shoot

I LOVE it when a client knows what they want and are able to tell me so we can get the look that they want!! Savanna was that girl!! A Harley, a 57 Chevy, a bridge and a field of yellow flowers were all on her list with outfits for each setting, of course! OK, so we had to do a little driving but it was worth it! Check these out!!
