Green Screen Shoot for Professional Promo


Theresa Dietrich, owner of People Talking Market Research, wanted a video promo to introduce herself and her methodology to prospective customers and to rekindle relations with past clients.

George Socka green screen shotI shot her on a green screen to allow a variety of backgrounds to be tested to see what works best. In the end she chose plain white, and the keyed out image of her speaking could easily be composited into the presentation exactly as desired.
The studio was lit entirely with cool lights - daylight balanced fluorescents to light up the background, and LED panels to light the speaker. Much better to work under than hot incandescents.

Pegasus Community Project Christmas / Holiday Party Shoot

Pegasus Community Project Marie and Gene
I had the opportunity to photograph a wonderful group of people at the Pegasus Community Project Holiday Lunch in Toronto. They wanted an event photo booth style shoot to let participants keep a memento of the event. I don't ask for testimonials but some people say the nicest things:

"The photos are wonderful. You have captured at least 6 of our participants in the best way I have ever seen and the others are just as brilliant. I am beyond pleased with this work."

Shot with a Canon 5DII, 24-105 lens, white backdrop, 2 Elinchrome D Lites with umbrellas and Skyport wireless trigger.
