Warm on warm on warm! Colour coordination is huge when it comes to “in the spotlight” type of studio shots. All things you thought were subtle, suddenly become showstoppers, and especially with our sensor, we are able to get a rich saturation from colour that you never even thought was there! Check out the subtle blue undertone in the pants, and how much softer it plays in this image than if it were a solid black.
Here’s a cute headshot for a an actress we shot the other month. It’s always fun to shoot actors when they use their craft in the session to bring out evocative expressions. We love how soft she was in this particular shot!
With his hair having had fingers freshly run through it, Dimitrije threw us this wicked confident squint. With all things going on in a photo, we as humans are nonetheless automatically drawn to the gaze first. It’s why above all else, you have to get the eyes right! Once he got the eye intensity figured out, we played around wit the various ways we could play with his hair positioning. Eventually we landed in a good place, but it wasn’t long before his hair moved again and we lost the sweet spot!
Marlee was looking to get her headshot updated for an audition in musical theatre. She required the photo to be delivered with a frame and in 8x10 format to get printed. For no extra charge, we can do simple thing like that, considering that it took less than a few minutes. Don't hesitate to ask what we services we offer for your photography.
In Marlee's case, she had her own means of printing her headshot, but did you know we also offer high ends prints of a variety of sizes, with our most common being 8x10. We recommend our printing services for modelling portfolios, acting headshots, and professional portraits for your self or as a gift.
Welcome our latest backdrop addition—nutmeg! Not just a spicy addition to your winter drinks, nutmeg has a nice warm and darker base than our ever so popular beige. Highly recommended for portrait, fashion, or just something a little different for whatever your need. We recommend going wit ha neutral colour palette when shooting against it and avoiding busy patterns and too much colour.
The summer has been great to Toronto this year (ignoring all the random storms of course), and we've taken it our liberty to encourage as many shoots outside while we're still in the warmer weather. Here's a more textured brick background we shot a portrait session at the other week. The objects in the background add dimension and interest to an otherwise simple shot. Let us know if you have any questions about shooting outdoors in your photoshoot!
Dennis is new to the world of acting, already haven taken some workshops, he was ready for the next step! He book our most popular package, the Standard, and brought in 3 outfit changes aiming to get one photo per look.
Throwback to the last time we used our lively textured backdrop for an acting headshot!
Though not exactly suitable for business, our textured grey is highly recommended for all shoots casual, including more creative endeavours such as musician or artist profile photos. Dress it down by adding wrinkles and contrasting shadows for a more organic effect, our dress is up by steaming it nice and clean to give a soft blurred effect in the background.
