My workflow - and why it matters! jonathanhallphotography.comjonathanhallphotography.comxr:d:DAF3vcczl9c:293,j:6293068030610385427,t:23122600 Hey you guys! I am writing this blog post to explain my workflow, and why it matters if you shoot with me!

So, here is my workflow...

First, when I do a shoot, I charge a flat hourly rate - there are no packages or anything like that. I keep it simple for both me and my client! Hooray!

For every hour I shoot, I do 4 hours of editing / post-processing.

I then provide my client with an online, password-protected gallery of final, fully-edited images, which they can download. While a client may choose to purchase prints, products, albums, etc. directly through their gallery, they are under no obligation to do so.

But, allow me to take a step back now and explain what I do before, during, and after the photoshoot in more detail.

Before the shoot, I am always happy to plan out the photoshoot in great detail - this means planning the outfits, the poses, the locations, etc. either with the client ( I love when they participate in this ) or without them if they'd rather I handle all the details. I firmly believe that the best photoshoot is a well-planned photoshoot, although I am always ready and willing to do photoshoots on the fly when necessary.

During the shoot, I love to keep things totally relaxed and have fun. I believe the best smiles are genuine smiles! I am also totally good with very serious looks - whatever the client wants!

After the shoot comes the editing and post-processing. I very much enjoy this which is quite a departure from most photographers who seem to hate hate hate editing. I love it! So allow me to go into a bit more detail about this part...

I usually start off by importing the original, RAW files into a program called Adobe Lightroom. This is what I use to cull the images ( keeping the best ones and removing the not-best ones ) and this is definitely a bit of an artform because having a good sense of what to keep and how many images to keep for further editing is not easy. I have to find the perfect balance between delivering as many images to my client as I can, while also editing the images to perfection - and fitting all of that into the allotted amount of time that I have to edit.

Once I have narrowed down the images, I continue to use Lightroom to do very simple, basic enhancements - I adjust the lighting, color temperature, do some cropping, etc. - the simple, basic edits.

From Lightroom, I launch each image into Photoshop, where I do the much more sophisticated edits. This is where I do artwork and more complex edits like enhancing the skin, eyes, lips, teeth, etc. I remove objects or parts I don't like, add objects or parts that I do want, move things about, etc. It can be fairly quick or quite lengthy depending on the image and what I want to do.

From Photoshop I frequently launch into PortraitPro Studio 23 - this allows me to do even more precise edits to the skin, face, eyes, nose, mouth, etc.

Also from Photoshop I frequently launch into ON1 - this is a program that I use to create various sophisticated effects. Typically, once I've done some things in ON1, I return to Photoshop to fine-tune the edits.

Finally, I upload the images to a private gallery on my website. I password-protect the gallery so that only my client has access.

During this process, I typically will post a few images to social media ( with my client's permission ) as teasers so that they get a glimpse of what is to come - I think this is really fun to do!

Anyway, that is my workflow, and now you know! Hooray!

Modeling Headshots JHP_MODELS_00065JHP_MODELS_00065

In the competitive world of modeling, where first impressions can make or break opportunities, the significance of a good headshot cannot be overstated. Serving as the calling card for models, a compelling headshot is more than just a photograph; it's a representation of one's unique charisma, versatility, and potential to captivate audiences. A well-crafted headshot communicates not only physical attributes but also personality, casting directors and clients alike often make crucial decisions based on this initial visual encounter. It serves as the gateway to securing auditions, bookings, and ultimately, a successful career in the industry. With the digital age shaping the landscape of modeling, a striking headshot transcends traditional portfolios, becoming a vital tool for online presence, social media engagement, and networking opportunities. In essence, investing in a professional headshot isn't just about capturing an image—it's an investment in one's modeling journey, a key asset that opens doors to a world of possibilities.

Senior Pictures!

OMG you guys! I cannot believe that my fall senior pictures ( Class of 2025 ) are almost completely booked already, but I still have a number of openings for Spring and Summer - what is going on? Spring and Summer are great times to shoot your senior pictures but for some reason in Ohio, it seems like soooo many people wait for fall to do it, and then can't get a spot with me! This is an absolute tragedy! Not shooting your senior pictures with me could seriously send you into a downward spiral from which you may never, ever recover!!! Why risk it? Are you crazy??? It's not worth the risk - just contact me now and let's get you scheduled! ( Oh, and I do have a few more fall spots open if you insist... ) Thank you!!!!

The Appalachian Witch

Hey you guys! I just recently returned from a motorcycle trip through Appalachia, where I encountered and befriended a local witch - the circumstances of our encounter are such that I am sworn to secrecy, but she did grant me permission to photograph her over a period of a few days and these are a few of the images we created! I hope you like them! Hooray!

Photography, and my love for scary movies! jonathanhallphotography.comjonathanhallphotography.comxr:d:DAF6hh6IZmM:44,j:405740373609527366,t:24012316 jonathanhallphotography.comjonathanhallphotography.comxr:d:DAF3q8bSCn4:11,j:8123780881837081795,t:23122203 jonathanhallphotography.comjonathanhallphotography.comxr:d:DAF4LYMmpgw:155,j:6263794913924677374,t:23122817 jonathanhallphotography.comjonathanhallphotography.comxr:d:DAF3Ml38OKY:223,j:4076170283758710171,t:23121722

I find immense joy in merging my love for photography with the thrilling and captivating world of scary movies. The marriage of these two artistic realms allows me to create visually striking and emotionally evocative images that resonate with viewers on a deep and haunting level.

One of the aspects I cherish most about blending photography with the horror genre is the opportunity to play with light and shadows. Much like the suspenseful cinematography of classic horror films, I experiment with dramatic lighting techniques to cast eerie shadows, heightening the sense of mystery and tension in my photographs. The interplay of light and darkness becomes a powerful tool in crafting narratives within a single frame, leaving room for viewers to interpret and feel a sense of unease.

Additionally, I draw inspiration from the rich visual language of horror movies to create compelling compositions. The framing of a shot, the choice of angles, and the manipulation of perspective all contribute to the creation of images that provoke a visceral response. Whether it's a subtle homage to iconic horror scenes or a completely original concept born from the depths of my imagination, each photograph becomes a storytelling device that taps into the primal emotions associated with fear.

In essence, my journey as a photographer delving into the realm of scary movies is a celebration of the art of fear and the beauty that can be found in the macabre. Through my lens, I aim to transport viewers into a world where the boundary between reality and nightmare blurs, inviting them to explore the uncharted territories of their own fears and fantasies.

You guys! Look at the weather forecast! In the next 48 hours, there is going to be an inch or slightly more of snow falling in the area of Lewis Center ( and presumably Powell, Westerville, Dublin, Columbus, etc. ) That is absolutely PERFECT for a winter photoshoot! Seriously, it is!


Winter photoshoots can be sooo beautiful and fun, too! The trick is to just stay as warm as possible between shots, and that is not hard to do. Just wear a great big warm coat, gloves, hat, etc. and keep that on in between shots. We can take as many breaks as necessary - so like shoot for a couple of minutes then warm up for a couple of minutes, then shoot, then warm up, and so on. It's really not that hard or uncomfortable and you can get such amazing images by shooting in the winter time!


So, what do you say? Just contact me and let's shoot! I can do it like any time at all! We will find an amazing spot and create amazing images!

It's Still Winter I just checked outside and it's still winter. I was hoping that maybe if I wanted it badly enough, it would be warm and sunny and beautiful and I could ride my motorcycle today. Sadly, it didn't work. It's cold and miserable and it's only going to get worse and winter in Ohio lasts for like 47 months before we get a month or two of summer and then it's right back to winter again.

My only solace is that it feels appropriate to post wintery images, of which I have quite a few.

Capturing Moments in Depth: My Love for the Nikkor 85mm f/1.4 Lens jonathanhallphotography.comjonathanhallphotography.comxr:d:DAF3vcczl9c:73,j:7324392094548487177,t:23122313

Photography isn’t just about freezing moments in time; it’s about crafting stories, emotions, and depth within a frame. As a photographer, my love affair with the Nikkor 85mm f/1.4 lens is akin to a painter finding their favorite brush—it’s the tool that enables me to weave magic into my images.

The 85mm focal length has become an extension of my vision, allowing me to delve deep into the essence of a scene. What makes the Nikkor 85mm f/1.4 truly remarkable is its ability to render breathtakingly beautiful images with an ethereal quality. Wide open at f/1.4, this lens is a maestro at producing a dreamy, creamy bokeh that effortlessly separates the subject from its background, drawing the viewer’s eye exactly where I intend.

One of the lens's superpowers lies in its capability to craft that elusive shallow depth of field—the kind that transforms an ordinary moment into an extraordinary memory. Whether I’m capturing intimate portraits or freezing a candid moment, the 85mm f/1.4 gifts me the ability to isolate subjects, creating a visual narrative that feels both intimate and powerful.

The beauty of this lens isn’t just in its technical prowess, but in the emotions it evokes. The way it delicately blurs the background while crisply defining the subject fosters an emotional connection within the frame. It’s not just about the sharpness or the blur; it’s about the feelings that those elements evoke—a sentiment that resonates deeply within the viewer.

Each click of the shutter with the Nikkor 85mm f/1.4 feels like a dance between light and storytelling. It’s more than a tool; it’s a companion in my creative journey, enabling me to capture moments with an artistic flair that speaks volumes beyond what words could convey. As I continue to explore the world through this lens, I discover new nuances, new stories, and new ways to encapsulate the beauty of fleeting moments.

The Fusion of AI and Photoshop: A Glimpse into the Future of Creativity

In the realm of digital artistry, the marriage of artificial intelligence and traditional creative tools like Photoshop has birthed a new era of image manipulation and generation. These collaborations between AI algorithms and human artists yield stunning, surreal visuals that push the boundaries of what was once thought possible. The process involves a synergy between AI-generated elements and the nuanced touch of human creativity, resulting in mesmerizing compositions that blur the lines between reality and imagination.

At the core of these creations lies the fusion of AI-generated content and the artist's vision. AI, equipped with immense data and learning capabilities, contributes by generating intricate patterns, textures, or even entire scenes. This raw material serves as a canvas for artists who then employ their expertise using software like Photoshop to refine, layer, and shape these elements into cohesive and captivating imagery. The collaboration becomes a dance of algorithms and human ingenuity, merging to produce visuals that evoke emotions and challenge perceptions.

However, these stunning visuals are not just a testament to artistic prowess; they symbolize the nascent stages of a profound transformation in our world—one catalyzed by the rise of AI. Just as the internet revolutionized the world in ways unimaginable to those in the 1980s, we stand at the cusp of a similar paradigm shift propelled by artificial intelligence. The extent of this impending transformation is challenging to grasp fully in our current moment, much like how the world pre-Internet era couldn't foresee the internet's colossal impact.

AI's influence extends far beyond art; it seeps into various facets of our lives, from healthcare and finance to transportation and entertainment. It's reshaping industries, streamlining processes, and redefining possibilities. Its ability to analyze vast datasets, generate creative content, and optimize tasks heralds a future where AI collaborates seamlessly with human intellect, augmenting our capabilities and reshaping our reality.

The impact of this AI-driven evolution on creativity is just one facet of a larger tapestry of change that's gradually unfurling. As AI continues to evolve, the boundaries between what's human-created and AI-generated will blur further, challenging our perceptions of authorship and creativity. Artists will harness AI not just as a tool but as a collaborator, pushing the boundaries of innovation and expression.

Embracing the Dark Aesthetic: My Love for Horror Movies and Gothic Photography

Embracing the Dark Aesthetic: My Love for Horror Movies and Gothic Photography

Horror movies, with their eerie atmospheres and spine-chilling narratives, have always held a special place in my heart. The thrill of the unknown, the adrenaline rush, and the goosebumps that follow a good scare – it's an experience that excites and captivates me like nothing else. But what's even more fascinating is how this passion seamlessly intertwines with my work as a photographer, especially in capturing the enigmatic essence of goth culture and goth girls.

The allure of horror films lies not just in the jump scares or the blood-curdling moments, but in the artistry behind the scenes. The play of light and shadow, the haunting landscapes, and the ability to evoke emotions that linger long after the credits roll – these elements of cinematography are what drew me into the world of horror. As a photographer, I found myself naturally gravitating toward similar visual aesthetics.

My journey into capturing the essence of goth culture through photography stemmed from this love for horror. The goth subculture, with its dark, romantic, and mysterious vibes, felt like an extension of the atmospheres I cherished in horror movies. The ethereal beauty and the striking, unconventional fashion of goth girls were elements I was keen to portray through my lens.

In my photography, I aim to not just capture images but to convey stories. Each photo becomes a visual narrative, a glimpse into a world that balances on the edge of darkness and beauty. The interplay of shadows, the contrast of light against dark, and the incorporation of elements from horror movies infuse my work with an eerie yet captivating quality.

Goth girls, with their distinctive style and a penchant for the macabre, became my muse. Through their personas and unique fashion choices, I found a canvas to express my fascination with the darker aspects of art and storytelling. Each photograph I take is a celebration of individuality, an exploration of the unconventional, and a homage to the allure of the mysterious.

Moreover, my love for horror movies has significantly influenced my approach to composition, lighting, and mood in my photography. Just as a horror director sets the stage for suspense and anticipation, I meticulously craft each photoshoot, paying attention to the smallest details to evoke a sense of eerie beauty.

Ultimately, the connection between my passion for horror movies and my photography work with goth girls is deeply rooted in the exploration of the unconventional and the celebration of the beauty found within the shadows. It's about embracing the darkness and finding artistry in the enigmatic, both on the screen and through the lens.

As I continue on this creative journey, my love for horror movies will always serve as a guiding force, infusing my photography with a unique blend of darkness, mystery, and alluring beauty.

In the end, it's the fascination with the unknown and the appreciation for the unconventional that fuels my artistic expression, allowing me to capture the captivating essence of goth culture and the haunting allure of horror in every frame.
