FMM brings a Photo Studio to your Facility
FMM can set up a portable portrait studio on-location on a client’s premises. A hand-painted professional canvas background is set up. Each employee photographed views his or her photographs on a laptop at the time of the shoot and selects his or her ‘best photo’ of the portrait, which will be the one edited and delivered. “At work” photos can also be taken on the same day as the portrait shoot.
Simultaneous Video and Photo shoots
FMM not only shoots video footage but can also take still digital photos at most video shoots, giving clients numerous options beyond video production. These still photos can be used for:
- Company newsletters
- Display photos at trade shows
- Company websites
- Business cards
The still photos are taken with Nikon digital cameras and lenses, producing high quality digital images that can be edited as needed and enlarged to substantial sizes.
Owner Marlin Brownell has an eye for photography and videography that allows him to pre-plan and shoot footage needed to edit tight, compelling productions. He includes close-ups, shots of products, scene-setting shots, views of workers at work, etc. Photographically, Marlin is able to take excellent photos that “tell the story”.
Photo editing is done individually on every photograph selected by our staff to present to our clients. Our editing including some or all of the following:
- Color adjustment
- Lightening and darkening of area to draw the viewer’s attention to the subject
- Darken background or add a vignette blur to the edges, as needed
If People are in the Photos:
- Remove skin blemishes and moles (if appropriate)
- Add snap to the eyes
- Brighten teeth
- Lighten the faces slightly to draw the viewer’s attention to the faces
Editing software typically used includes Adobe Photoshop® and LightRoom®, Nikon’s Capture NX2® and OnOne’s Photo Tools®.
One of the best ways to promote yearly events is to use video footage and still photos of this year’s event for next year’s marketing. Many times people express how they wish they had a photo or a video clip of last year’s event to use in their upcoming publicity. We can shoot that footage and get those still photos of this year’s events for a reasonable cost, then edit them later when needed.
