Hair Light Placement Green Screen Lighting Tip
One of the most frequent causes of additional charges for green screen cleanup is caused by poor hair light placement

We have created a helpful tip sheet in pdf format to answer your questions about hair light placement when working with green screen.

Updated Policy for Green Screen Knockout Images
Improper lighting, exposure, or photographer error requires green screen knockout “cleanup” to the image, and is charged at $0.75 per minute.  When this is necessary, and the charges are less than $25, we will continue with the cleanup process and notify you with the reason.  When the estimated charges are greater than $25, we will contact you to request studio approval before proceeding with the cleanup process.
Pro Template Series – Now including Fusion Pro without Fire
Pro templates have many dynamic options that make them easy to quickly customize for each group.  We have three themes in this series, Fusion Pro (now available with or without fire),Competitor Pro, and Impact Pro. Each theme has a different graphic look and accent icons to choose from, but they all share the ability to adapt to your needs.

Pro series templates feature color and icon picker. This means that you set up your price list packages with the products to sell, then you can select the color and icon for each group. Pro templates keeps your price list simple while offering the flexibility to have different groups and different icons in the same order. Impact Pro now available in hhschools and eZsports.


We pride ourselves in providing our customers not only with excellent products, but with great educational resources as well. Our blog features articles about equipment, lighting, advice from other professionals and all kinds of great photography tips. This is just one of the many ways that we provide our customers with the tools they need to succeed as professional photographers.


Look for more classes coming soon in 2016!
