Frequently Asked PHOTOSHOOT Questions
"Where is Opulux Designs located?"
Opulux is based out of Tampa, FL but travels frequently between Philadeliphia and Salisbury, MD areas. Opulux is not opposed to traveling outside of those areas for clients. Please be advised, there will be a travel fee if the location is outside of a 25mi radius of the mentioned cities.
"What happens if it rains? Don’t you shoot only on location with natural light?"
Weather happens! If unfavorable weather occurs on the day of our scheduled shoot, we for sure can reschedule for another day. If the weather is expected to pass in a reasonable amount of time (the same day), then our session will be postponed until the weather clears and can resume as normal (the same day).
"Can I bring my own camera or can someone I bring with me bring their camera to take photos while we are shooting?"
Your personal camera phone is allowed but not needed. Bringing another person with an actual camera to shoot on top of what Opulux is shooting is not only distracting but its infringing on Opulux's work a professional. So please, dont bring a camera.
"How soon will I get my retouched images?"
Your retouched images could be ready in as soon as a few hours from the end of our shoot. But sometimes perfection takes time and may need up to 3 business days. A post production video can be expected within 3-4 business days.
"What should I wear?"
Each of my sessions allows for a certain number of wardrobe changes; the reason for this is that it allows me to structure the session based on what you’ve chosen to wear. If your package includes wardrobe thats provided by Opulux, then half the battle is over. If you more more variety, we suggest you bring your favorite options that cordinates with our wardrobe style. More funky/colorful clothing is perferred. We always suggest that you choose at least 2 MORE options than what your session calls for so we can help you narrow it down. Some things photograph better than others…. as a rule, I recommend to stay away from too much white, especially on top, as well as black. Tops that are very loose fitting also don’t photograph as well, and too may opposing prints/patterns can get distracting.
"Will my photos be delivered in hi-res for magazine submissions and printing?"
Your paid shoot includes final images that will be delivered in high resolution for submissions and printing.
"Does Opulux provide videography services?"
Videography services are offered in certain shoot bundle packages. Opulux Designs video services are offered in 4K resolution or HD 1080p. Opulux does not offer videography as a solo service.
"Do you touch up all the images in our image download?"
For event photography, yes we do. Every image we deliver is post produced with our unique signature style of post-production. This involves color correction, exposure adjustment, selective black and white processing, clarity adjustments, tone-mapping, and other corrections.
"How long does a photoshoot normally take?"
"What is your refund policy? Can I cancel/ re-schedule?"
"How many images will I get?"
You will receive the number of images that were allotted in the package you purchased. Any additional images desired outside of what is offered will incur an additional service fee starting at $35 an edit. If more than one additional image is desired then special pricing kicks in. Please contact us for a custom quote.
"Do you offer a Payment Plan?"
An Opulux Designs Payment Plan is available to clients who first pay their required initial deposit for the shoot of their choice. Additional payments toward the balance can be made via CashApp to $OpuluxDesigns.
"Who has copyright to the images?"
"Do I have to sign a photo release form? Why?"
Yes. A Photo Copyright Release Form serves as a proof that the permission has been granted to you or your business to use the photo and the picture property that belongs to another. The Photo Copyright Release Form is an agreement in written form between the two parties. The first party is the photographer and the other one is the person who is being photographed. In case of a child, the other party will inevitably be the guardian or the parents of the child. In case what is being photographed is an object or a property, then the other party will be the owner of the said property. The form declares and both parties can ensure it by first reviewing the Photo Release Form that the right of publishing and sharing the pictures has been granted by the photographed person.
