Things are slow at the studio today, so we’re going to play a little game. It’s called, can you tell which of these photos were taken on a green screen and which were not?
We’ll give you a hint: 4 of them are green screen, the rest are not.
Why is green screen so awesome?
Two reasons: control, and safety. Two things we all could use a lot more of while still battling a global pandemic.
Using green screen (or taking a person’s photo in front of a bright green, or chroma key background, then inserting a new background later) is great for getting matching backdrops for everyone photographed on different days, or for getting sunny, outdoor photos in the middle of winter, or to just have more options to choose from than a plain color or a drab room. We can control the lighting and posing in a climate-controlled studio, and then the sky’s the limit with what we can insert into the photos behind you afterward.
Green screen also adds another tool in our arsenal of new policies and procedures to keep both clients and photographers safe. It allows for us to photograph whole teams one person at a time to minimize contact and grouping. We’ve also used the magic of Photoshop to add and remove people from group photos recently, with amazing results: another way we can all stay together, separately.
Contact us to chat more about pricing and options for you or your whole team and we’ll tell you all about it.
