Design, Photo / May. 15, 2009

Given On Site’s content type and shoe-string budget, we don’t do many pro (or “pro”) photo shoots, but this studio shot was easy and effective.The Business Journal photographer’s hand-me-down camera that we had to use was so resolution challenged that I had to shoot Melissa as tight as possible and fill in the background in Photoshop. Even then we only managed 275 dpi.

And while we’re doing confessions, our “studio” is actually a storage closet which is still used as a storage closet. We occasionally have CEOs and other big-wigs in the office for interviews and still or video shoots. Watching their expression as they realize they’re being led into a closet instead of the photo studio they were imagining is priceless.
