Green Screen Photography, otherwise known as Chroma Key photography, is an exciting process which allows you and your guests to be photographed with any background. Green Screen is a must-have option for family events, weddings, mitzvahs or trade shows. It is a powerful marketing tool too, many companies and trade shows hire SophterLight Green Screen to produce digitally derived custom backgrounds that promote their brand or product.
Here’s how it works.
You and your guests pose in front of a chroma green colored background for our camera. Then technology takes over and that green monochrome backdrop is replaced with - well - quite literally anything! Any image, any signage, any message; the options are limitless and with the help of our on-site photographers and technical staff anything is within reach!
With thousands of backgrounds to choose from your guests will have a blast exploring their whims. Your guests can be “photographed” in any exotic location, on the beach, underwater, next to their favorite celebrity, on a magazine cover, or almost anywhere else you can imagine.
If branding or product placement is your goal you can supply one of your own images or have us design a highly effective branding message. In this way, The possibilities are endless and limited only by your imagination.
Your guests will enjoy professional quality pictures in minutes. We only print using professional quality photo paper on state-of-the-art dye sublimation photo printers and digital photography equipment. The images captured and printed for your quests will not fade or smudge and will last a lifetime.
Green Screen Photography Session
Looking for something truly unique as a keepsake for your guests? Consider Green Screen Photography from SophterLight Photography & Green Screen for your next special event. The Green Screen Photography Session utilizes an extra-large green screen background with our professional studio lighting and photography equipment for top quality results and creative flexibility.

During a Green Screen Photography Session, your photos are taken in front of the Green Screen and soon the green background is automatically replaced with the custom background(s) of your choice. Each individual image is immediately edited and the finished photo is professionally printed on a custom designed 4×6, 5×7, 6×9 or 8x10 print. We print a copy for every person in every photo. The Green Screen Photography Session requires an area of about 20 feet by 20 feet for setup.

What Makes A Good Headshot?
Many people ask me, “what goes into making a good headshot?” There are many aspects that make a good headshot and since I get many of the same concerns from my clients, I thought it would be good to post.
Whether you’re an actor, a businessperson or a first-time headshot client, who couldn't use a little advice on taking their best photos?
In order for you to be taken seriously as a professional, you need to present yourself in your best light (pun intended), and this is all tied together with your professional headshot. Will your potential clients take you seriously based on what your current photo portrays? If you have any doubt, then you may want to consider a pro. Professional photographers understand how to put you in your best light. here’s a quick list of what considerations you should give to your headshots:
It is never ok to…
Making the best first impression begins with you photo, after all, it is the first thing that potential employers see on your profile especially with the ubiquitous social media platforms of today. Think of it as an opportunity to sell yourself!
EXPRESSION There are only three ways a person can show facial expression.
A lot of times clients don’t even realize they are making certain expressions and the last thing I want is for people to feel pressure to come up with a flattering pose or to over think in front of the camera. As a photographer it is my responsibility to watch for, if not evoke, the right expressions from you.
Your eyes communicate the most. To gain the best image you must strive to put yourself in a positive upbeat place, feeling comfortable and confident. If you are worried about how the pictures are going to look – that’s what’s going to show up! It is our shared responsibility to make the experience fun and to get a great smile and genuine expression.
Let loose and enjoy the experience! Often times when I am shooting clients, I will get them to laugh only to have them immediately stifle their laughter. Don't do it! Go with it!
PICKING YOUR PHOTOS
If nothing else, have CONFIDENCE. Do what you have to do to be confident in yourself during your session it is the single most important factor to getting a great head shot.
A few weeks ago I was contacted to advertise with Groupon -- it got me thinking... we run very successful portrait sales campaigns and are very pleased with the results, why should we work with Groupon, LivingSocial, AmazonLocal or any of the other deal-a-day ad companies?
Besides the obvious answers to that question, I decided to: a) run my own special and b) offer another promotion through another deal-a-day provider.
In the coming months, we will be offering variations on some of our most popular photo sessions, if you would like a sneak peak of the line up send me an email. You'll get the inside scoop on what to expect through December and the new year.
In the mean time, for a limited time, consider this current special: A One-Hour Photo Session voucher which includes an 8x10 print and 2- 5x7 prints for $149 per person (4 or more? Call for pricing.) Use the studio session voucher any time, from the date you purchased through November 2014.
Take advantage of the Fall foliage, take some family portraits for the holidays...whatever you want. Our clients have used these shoots for family portraits, senior photos, baby pictures and even engagement shoots. Get creative and have some fun! Call us at (929) 335-4353 to schedule a session or cinch the deal before it's gone!
