One of my fastest growing products/services, Virtual Backgrounds creates context and place when a client is photographed in the studio.
The benefits: save time and money. The client is scheduled to come to my studio for photography at a mutually convenient time. Location photography requires more time and logistics with a high fixed cost for travel and set up. Location portraits can be disruptive to an office environment.
We start with the client photographed against a neutral white background.
After cosmetic retouching, the client is removed from the background using sophisticated masking software.
Office background photos, taken previously and archived, are appropriately blurred to make the final image look natural.
Finally, the client is placed on the background. Scaling and cropping tunes the entire image up to create a strong environmental portrait.
