Green Screen Portraits

April 13th, 2014 Comments off

We often shoot background images for our archive while on location for photography assignments.  We frequently use green  screen (chroma key) techniques to make a portraits and drop them onto images from our background archive. We have thousands of backgrounds & elements: buildings, skies, grass, bushes, etc. in our archive.  Many of the bushes and other elements have been isolated from their surroundings over the years for various projects.  You could say, the grass is always greener on the other side of Photoshop.  Placing portrait subjects onto random backgrounds does require finesse  to look natural, but we find this to be a compelling way to make interesting and flexible portraits.  See below green screen portraits of structural engineers:

Arlington Architectural Photography

October 3rd, 2012 Comments off

We recently photographed the Westlee building in Arlington, Va.  for an architectural client.  Early fall is a great time for architectural photography in the Northern Va area.  The trees and grass are still green and the skies are clear and blue.  It’s refreshing to get some “Clean” sun instead of the hazy light we get for most of the summer around Washington DC.

Reston Portrait Photography

September 10th, 2012 Comments off

Here is a portrait of Lynn St. Amour. She’s the President and CEO of the Internet Society, which has offices in Reston, Va. We used shallow depth of field to blur the background and utilized the available light on the wall in addition to three of our lights on her. I like the soft lighting we created and the twinkle in her eyes.

Professional Portrait at Studio 76

no images were found

This is a portrait we made of Emily Dunn, who is a Master Esthetician (Laser Skin Treatments).  She hired us to shoot a portrait for her new employer’s website.

We recently remodeled Studio 76 in Herndon, Virginia. One of the new additions to our “Dope-Fly” studio is a background system that allows us to change backgrounds rapidly.

We shoot a good number of headshots every year and take time to make each one the best it can be.  Every subject deserve our best work and we want to make them all look their best.
