Portrait / Glamour

Cryptic Vision Studio now offers professional portraits that capture the spirit of our subjects by making our clients comfortable and relaxed at a location of particular importance to you instead of in a studio. We also provide Chroma Key (6’ x 7’ - Blue / Green) Portrait photography with a variety of backdrops patterns. Using soft and warm lighting we create depth and realism in your portrait. Lighting your subject properly can mean the difference between a natural-looking shot and a completely fake-looking shot.

We allow an hour and a half for your session. The first fifteen minutes are allowed for setting up equipment. This includes set-up of studio lights with backdrops and flash system at the location. As there are many different techniques for portrait photography, we strive to incorporate several different styles during your shoot. We recommend that you bring a change of outfits with you. For children’s sessions age 5 and under, parents are encouraged to help.
