    I loved the fact that not only are his photography and editing skills excellent but that he is willing to gear the sessions to whatever I am taking photos of at the time, be it a new grandchild, a cruise, a special occasion, landscape or an individual.

    David's sports photography shots were fantastic. The action and colors of his shots from football games are great. He captured it all very very well. Would for sure recommend David Hood Photography.

About this pro

David has a passion for digital photography and Photoshop editing. He's a good listener, patient, well practiced in the art, and gets great joy from sharing his passion with others - that makes him a great camera coach/tutor. He enjoys helping others get the most from their digital cameras and gaining the confidence to produce photos that will amaze their family and friends. His work has won local awards and awards from online photo share sites. His website features a photo blog together with a varied portfolio including head shots, portraits, youth sports, high school football, and college baskeketball. I get great satisfaction from showing clients how to capture the photo they envision by switching their camera from "auto" mode to "manual" and controlling the light entering the camera lens with aperture, shutter speed and ISO settings that will produce a high quality picture. The icing on the cake is teaching the client how to take that quality photo to the next artistic level with post processing in Photoshop.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      I do my best to offer fair and reasonable market based pricing. My pricing includes all State and local taxes.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      Whenever possible I like to meet a potential new customer by phone or over coffee to get to know one another, discuss the prospective client's vision for their project, and learn the client's expectations for project success. This is important because I need to know that I'll be able to meet or exceed the client's expectations, and because it takes teamwork between client and photographer to enable a successful photo shoot.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      My Dad was a photographer in Eastman Kodak's Studio, so I grew up in the film days shooting Tri-X film and processing film and photographs in our basement darkroom. After graduating college in 1967, military service and family obligations put a temporary hold on my passion for photography. I re-connected in the digital age as we became "empty nesters", purchased my first DSLR in 1968, and began taking on-line courses where I became aware of the advantage of shooting in Adobe Camera Raw (as opposed to jpeg) and the workflow process for achieving proper white balance, exposure, contrast, saturation, tonal balance, and sharpening with Photoshop. By constantly practicing what I learned and learning new techniques every week I grew more confident in my ability to adjust my camera settings to produce high quality images. I'll never know it all, and at present I'm studying off camera lighting techniques.
