Yes you can! One of the many advantages of digital post production is being able to change the background or place the subject into a new background. Many times I go into a client's premises and we don't have room to get 'the shot' or the client is so terribly busy they only have time to stand in front of a white background in a small office.
This photo was taken on a white background and I dropped him onto this dark vignetted background. Let me know your comments?
“Hey Peter, should I get make up done for my portrait?” In today's world image is everything and corporate portraits are branding in there own right. Think about the number of places your portrait will be - your website, Facebook, Linkedin, tenders, promotional material, Youtube etc.
For the guys, its an oily face that leaves shine from the lights and for the women, its the right makeup and the amount to put on for studio lights. Why do you think in the TV shows they all have make up on.
Properly done by a professional make up artist it isn't obvious and enhances your features. In fact most clients say it relaxes them by talking to the trained make up artists about the process and watching the photographer in your office or boardroom at work.
From my experience in the corporate world, if you want to invest in time and money to have your portrait done, think about what the make up can do for your face. We do retouch marks, some wrinkles, whiten the teeth and eyes so your portrait will look fantastic.
Will I be working over the holiday break?
Sometimes busy executives don't have time to get a haircut let alone their portraits taken for the new year. It is important to keep up to date with your image so people are not shocked to see an older you... sorry but its true. I remember meeting a real estate agent whose photograph was to say the least everywhere in her suburbs. She was 10 years older than the portrait and changed quiet a bit.
So yes I will be working around the Brisbane city in January. Call for a booking on 0411192822. Enjoy your break. Pete
