Dirty Philadelphia commercial photography job for Andritz Group … wow, this job was very difficult. My gear and me ended up smelling like fecal matter. Yes, crap. This plant turns human waste into fertilizer pellets. There is nothing I won’t do for a client… ok maybe next time I will rethink this job. Yes that little guy is me!
Green screen that is. Shooting photos using a green screen is an exciting way of producing images that allows us to replace the background with another photo or design. Why green? Because there is less green in human flesh tones (unless you have been flying around town in a doorless 2 man helicopter – but I have already written about that). As an example, we shoot UTI graduates using a green screen and then provide a choice of their logo or actual school as a background. Really, wouldn’t a graduation photo in front of your school trigger more memories in […]
We were contracted to photograph things having to do with public transportation for a brochure. This is my favorite image, showing the fast moving train to the side with people walking along. It shows motion of both the train and the people, keeping your eyes interest. Philadelphia Commercial Photographer UPDATE: We received our Comment card back from the client…..They rated us at the top of the list for Timeliness, Quality of Images, Creativity, Packaging, and Overall Rating. One more satisfied Visual Technology client!
Here is an image I shot the other day. We had some plain jane booring parts to photograph and they wanted something much fancier…..we call it a “glamour shot.” This particular image is quite dramatic, with only one light source on the product. Typically we use multiple light sources to enhance and show all features of a product, but once in a while that is not required and interest in the image or product is gained by interesting lighting.
I photographed the 2008 Literacy Heroes today. This is the third year for this event, and it benefits the West Chester Public Library in West Chester, Pennsylvania. Everyone is nominated by a friend or colleague to receive the award, and this is the breakfast where everyone receives their accolades. See more photos here.
What we do a for a “Simple Product Shot” We constantly have clients and prospects asking “It is just a simple product shot, why will it cost that much?” It is not that we are expensive, we are middle of the road as far as pricing is concerned. Well the long and the short of it is, in this case, that because this product is reflective on many sides we needed to set up a rig to hold it; hand positioning is critical for size relationship and no hand model is that good. You want it clipped to a 255 […]
What a cool helicopter! I thought I had a month to pull this shoot together, however the designer called me up a day later and told me that the magazine agreed to get us in early. Time to Scramble! 2 days to get a model and set up the shoot…wow. This bird goes 380 mph forward and 80 mph sideways. This is what makes my job so much fun. Thanks for the memories David Kale
