What Green Background?

Washington DC Corporate Headshot Photographers, Delane Rouse

Last week we worked on creating new background choices for our clients. Several years ago we transitioned to shooting 75-85% of of our business headshots using a chroma-green or chroma-blue background. This provides our clients with more flexibility in their usage since they aren’t locked into a single background choice. We no longer use muslins, canvas and “Old Master” backgrounds. It’s PhotoShop or bust for this headshot photographer.

We created an updated blue-marbled background for several team members at Capstone Advisory Group.

This image was originally shot on a chroma-green (green screen) background, then we extracted the subject and placed him on this blue-marbled background..

Business Headshots for Architects

It’s been a while since we’ve had an architect in the studio, so today’s session was a lot of fun. Isaiah needed a Washington DC business headshot photographer to create a new image for use on the corporate website. It turns out that we are neighbors and as a kid I wanted to be an architect…I think designing commercial buildings has to be a BLAST.

Our retouching department extracted the subject from the background and applied some slight retouching techniques to put the finishing touches on the image.

I was very happy with the final image we created. Now here is the part where I’ll be really honest…we usually shoot 15-20 images, review them using our FAVORITE piece of software, Photo Mechanic on our 17″ MacBookPro then make a final selection. Easy right? Most of the time it is easy. It’s rare that we have to shoot additional images for a client but in this case I knew that we could improve. It not that the first image we picked was bad…it was actually pretty good. It’s just that I saw a GREAT smile and was warm and confident when we were chatting during during the review. So I had Isaiah step back in front of the camera and we shot 6 extra frames. After doing a quick review we BOTH immediately knew that THIS was the image.
