*** Please note: The Gallery will probably take 30 seconds to a minute to load the first time you view this page, because images are rather large in filesize for optimal viewing quality. Please read the instructions and notes below carefully while you wait for the gallery to load!

 

With Chinese internet being unreliable and slow, if the pictures are still loading very slowly, or seem to not load at all after giving it a minute, try connecting with a VPN. If you have problems still, just let me know, and we'll find a work-around.

 

Hi Sabine, Alex, Nikki, and Titus! I had such a great time working with you to get these images!

 

The images below are the 'first picks' I made of all those I shot - and honestly, this is a lot more than I typically put in a preview gallery, but we got a lot of great stuff! As friends, I'll give you copies of everything that is here - so you really only need to pick the ones you want a full retouch-edit on and the ones you want printed, and the rest I'll give to you as they are now in the preview gallery.

Notes Specifically For This Album:

 

1) There are a number of similar 'candid' shots of the family walking, or of very slight posing variations for individual portraits, etc. - while they are similar in nature, what you pick is up to you, I left them all in because I didn't know if one particular spot/street would be more meaningful to you, of if you have a favorite 'smile'.

 

2) The "I Love Shanghai" package includes:

- 30 final edited images from this gallery

Prints of EITHER:

- three 8x12 prints

- one 40x60cm print

 

When you make your selections below, just let me know in the comments (or by email) what images you'd also like printed (they can be different images/in any combo... just let me know). I can also email you a price sheet for additional prints/albums, etc. if you'd like to order those through me - but as I said, you're welcome to do so on your own as well! I love prints, and mainly just want to encourage families to print somewhere, because I'm a believer in the idea that that is how images are best viewed and preserved. :)


For any package, additional images can be edited and included at full resolution for an additional fee, or bought in 'packages' as listed below

 

3) Please make your choices by leaving a 'comment' in the box below these instructions (I've left additional instructions there!). BE SURE to email or text me when you've left your comments, so I know they are there. I check back on these pages every few days, but I don't get an automatic notification when you've made your selections. :)

 

 

General Instructions/Notes:

 

1) All images in the preview gallery have relatively minor edits done thus far - basically just adjustments if I would have planned on cropping in advance, etc. There is no "touching up" of faces/stray hairs/etc. yet - so don't worry about skin blemishes, blowing hair etc. - I'm very good at editing those types of details! Please also note that whenever possible, I'll remove distracting background elements like people, trashcans, etc. if I can do so and still have it look natural - basically, I'll make your final selection edits reflect the absolute best those particular pictures can be. 


2) Pick images based on things like: what you have the strongest emotional response to, expressions, poses, and overall composition/framing. Don't leave an image off of your 'list' of picks because of small variations in color, tone, or small distractions (like a few stray hairs that are out of place, etc.). Those issues can all typically be fixed/corrected in editing. 

 

3) All images below are not full-resolution; they are sized for convenient downloading/viewing here on the website. I will edit the final images you choose and give them to you on a flash drive, or make them available for digital download at full resolution, without a watermark. The size of final images is quite large - and more than enough to make large (actually, gigantic!) prints of if you wish.

 

4)  Different people have different tastes when it comes to editing in Photoshop. I always aim for a balance of editing that looks natural, but that highlights the beauty of the subject in the most flattering way possible. Some people like images to be almost completely unedited - leave all freckles, moles, etc. I can edit the pictures for you according to your preferences - because they need to be images that resonate with you!

 

Selecting Your Final Images for Editing:

 

Please send me an email with the final images you want me to edit and get to you in full-resolution.   (chris@v2photography.com) - text, WeChat, or WhatsApp messages are also fine!  Editing/printing will typically take approximately 7-10 business days from the day you have made your selections; I try to get them done as quickly as possible, however!

 

Once editing is finished, I will get the final edited images to you and your print. If you have selected additional images beyond what the package includes, we can discuss the easiest way to make the payment then (usually at the time I deliver the final images). 

 

I can't wait to see what you pick! 

 

Best Regards, 

Chris.
