We have a studio here at Michael Willems Photo that is nice and high – but it has a nine foot wide backdrop. I would not mind a wider backdrop, but they do not exist.
So we shoot a large group like this:
And then what?
Simple – photoshop allows us to quickly and efficiently fill the background. Content aware fill was good; generative fill is even better.
To do this well, ensure that the entire group (including the bench) is in front of the backdrop. And to achieve that, shoot from as far back as you can. The further back, the wider the backdrop appears to get.
Come to our Ottawa studio any time to see for yourself.
