We recently did a senior sessions with the girls in these images. Dance is a very important aspect of their life. We thought it would be fun to do an artistic shoot with them. We chose three different locations that each had their own unique look. A big part of getting great images is finding the perfect setting. Research the locations you want to use before each session. Our studio is very close to an urban downtown area. We are always finding new and creative spots there for our sessions.
Each girl brought an outfit that complimented the textures of each setting. We love it when we can pair beautiful outfits with the location. Their outfits also added in each girls’ unique personal flair. For one portrait our dancer wore a beautiful white ballet outfit. It stood out against the dark industrial background (image above).
For this portrait our dancer wore a bright red gown that complimented the faded brick wall.
For this portrait we wanted to add in a stunning background. The church was a perfect paring for the dancers outfit. It was exactly what we wanted for our artistic shoot.
In this portrait our ballerina wore a tutu that gave a lighthearted feel to the overall image.
Some tips for getting great pictures like these is to use good lighting. We used off camera flash and a deflector to bounce lighting onto the dancers. It really helped to make the portraits pop. Since we were working with dancers it was important to capture their beautiful posture. A great way to do that is with proper posing. You can read our guide here to learn more.

Adam came to us wanting to update his portfolio for his acting career. He wanted a way for directors to notice him and to be set apart from the rest of the acting crowd. Having professional head shots are very important to any aspiring actor or actress that are looking to make a big break. Adam was very eager to make sure that his images we as eye catching as possible. In the acting world, directors have an easier time selecting who they want in their productions if they are presented with a head shot that looks professional and unique.
Keep It Simple
For actors head shots, simple is best. You want the directors to be drawn to your face, so as little distraction from the rest of your body as possible is great. Wear clothes that don’t have bright patterns or colors, and keep make up light. We recommend that you prepare before coming in by deciding on what character or personality you want portrayed through your head shots. Are you looking for more serious roles? Then a more serious attire and facial expressions. Want to work in comedy? Then more laid back clothing and a cheerful look. Want to do both? We can do that too! Your head shots are your chance to show off how you can get into character. In addition to having great facial expressions, having amazing lighting can make the images even more photographic. Adam knew when he came in that he wanted to keep his outfits simple and portray a serious and confidant demeanor.

Commercial Composite Photography
Are you looking for green screen photography? Maybe you are looking for commercial composite photography.
Composite photography is the art of taking multiple photos of individuals or elements and then layering them into one digital photo.
This image above is an example of a digital composite. This would be referred to as our green screen photography services.
On a commercial photo shoot, we spend a lot of time photographing each individual. We photograph them in several different poses and expressions. This allows us options on our final digital composite image.
Each of our subjects are photographed on a green screen or white screen. This is so we can extract them from the background. Digital extracting is a tedious and meticulous process. Once our extractions are complete we begin our art work designing in Photoshop.
For this commercial photography session they wanted a group image as well as individual images for their website and marketing.
For this particular commercial shoot we decided to use our white screen set up, instead of our green screen set up.
Here is an example of an individual image.
This is the result in extracting the subject in Photoshop then dropping them into a background of choice.
Here is an example of an alternate background.
Using the composite photo technique, we can basically take a commercial company anywhere. The company can be or look however they would like, all while being shot in one studio set up.
Here is another example of individual subject.
We have access to a multitude of backgrounds. We consult with our commercial accounts and find out what type of setting they are looking for. We then present a number of backgrounds to choose from.
In some cases, we have to go out and photograph new digital backgrounds. Here is an example of some digital backgrounds that we photographed for this commercial photography account.
We then present them by dropping a subject in the background. This helps the client visualize the final product. From there they choose their favorite backgrounds.
Here is more information on how we create our digital composites.
