A downtown Minneapolis law firm, one of my clients, has had me come down to the firm's offices to shoot several attorneys at a time. When I do, I set up in the reception area and shoot portraits against the downtown facing windows. However, when it comes to shooting photos of just one attorney, it makes much more sense for her to come to my studio. I photographed her against a white background. Previously, I shot photos of the view out the law firm's windows. After retouching her photo, I used a sophisticated software plug-in called Perfect Mask to extract her from the white background and place her on the downtown window background.
Besides the convenience, the cost of producing an image like this is approximately half of what it would cost if I shot the photos on location.
