On his San Francisco photography blog, corporate photographer Michal Soo describes that the strategy to making everyone pleased and happy with their group picture is to take it one individual at a time, and merge the photos with each other in Photoshop.
Typically, getting a group photograph that makes everyone happy has been nearly impossible. But San Francisco corporate photographer Michael Soo has has found a solution and remedy: taking individual photographs, and putting them together using the magic of Photoshop. In the latest post on his photography blog, Soo explains how this development is taking the hassle out of company photos, saving everyone time and tears.
“Anyone who has ever attempted to pick out the best company picture has run into the eternal problem of group photos: there is never one that everyone likes,” Soo notes. “Someone is always blinking, making a weird face, sticking out their gut, looking in the wrong direction, sneezing, etc.”
Soo says many companies are opting out of the whole headache, and choosing to have each team member photographed individually, with the best picture of each person merged together afterwards in Photoshop.
In Soos new blog post, the San Francisco company photo specialist explains 6 benefits of this new technique:
1. No one will be unhappy with the final result anymore. Because they were photographed individually, each person can select their best photo out of 10-30 photographs taken.
2. It’s easier for everyone to find the time to show up for the photo shoot. Scheduling a group of busy professionals is exponentially harder than individuals.
3. If a team member is added or removed from the team, there’s no need to schedule EVERYONE for another group photo. We simply book a shoot with the new person, and add them to the shot.
4. It’s so much easier and quicker to set up the shot, because the amount of space needed to take this type of group photo can be 10-20 times smaller than for a traditional group shot.
5. The same individual pictures can be inserted into various group pictures, so if someone works in more than one department, we can use the same portrait in multiple departments of a corporation!
6. And of course, it looks super cool. We play with the arrangement, and add in shadows and lighting techniques, so it appears that everyone was in the same place at the same time, and just magically happened to all look amazing!
