Agnieszka Filipowska for Studio Manufaktura: Five Image Mini-Session for €33.80

This is the come-on posted by Polish photographer Agnieszka Filipowska on her Facebook page:

New fashion – mini sessions at special prices!
3 Photos – €22.53    5 Photos – €33.80  

Regardless of whether the school / kindergarten aways and eagerly waited for the day, or on the contrary – already you count down the time until the next holiday – the beginning of the year is a great opportunity to paste more beautiful photos in a family album, right? Therefore, on the weekend 10-11 September enjoy a mini-session for this occasion.

At the session, you can come by yourself, bring a brother or sister, or a classmate :). Preschoolers may pose accompanied by a favorite stuffed animal, a teddy bear (and older kids too, of course) or can boast a new satchel – if they feel like it 🙂

Below – sample photos.

We hope you will have nice weather and the session will be open-air, in the garden next to the studio, but in case of rain we will invite you inside :).”(My clean-up of Google Translate – marginally better than Facebook’s automatic translate function)

This being one of the “samples”:

…my opening image isn’t one of the examples she posts, but it’s clearly the same two models posing for the “duo” shot that every five-picture mini-session has – with regulation school uniform and books and apple (for those who need a sharp nudge in order to recognise a school photo).

Here they are in a bigger format:

gr7eg2oevh4k-lanczos3

iewbb36naszl-lanczos3

kaluevi7vrwi-lanczos3

uhhxax9zakqn-lanczos3

…..the thing to remember being that the five-image format envisages that your little Aleksandra will only have two individual shots if she brings her friend – you’d need to make sure you’re splitting the cost in half….whereas with the cheaper three-shot format she shines alone….

The first image of the five has the Studio Manufaktura watermark – this being Agnieszka’s trade name for her photographic business in the southern Polish city of Kielce – but she has her own Facebook page too, albeit sharing a lot of the studio’s posts (amongst all the dog and cat photos: she’s a great animal lover).

She has done some really lovely b&w portraits – probably her best work:

….the skin tones and captures of the girls’ characters are really impressive.

Then there are a number of air-brushed commercial studies – the first, “Rapunzel”, has done well in a couple of important child-photography competitions:

…..and her most recognisable style: one or more children isolated by a pool of light in an outdoor location:

……and some indoor portraits (tho’ the last is quite probably outdoor, it’s still such a close shot as to make no difference):

….some again using her “pool of light” style.

She seems to be perfectly happy with the amount of creativity she manages to extract from private portrait sessions and commercial/advertising work – and proudly displays her images on sites like 500px – but I’d love her to do more of the really studied b&w portraits she’s so good at. Provincial Poland – doing pretty well….here’s Agnieszka:
