Virtual Backgrounds is an Image Enhancement System that enables the professional photographer to be infinitely more creative by projecting a background, live, behind the subject, working in a controlled environment where the photographer has total control.
This amazing tool enables professional photographers to quickly and efficiently create products that amateurs and other professionals cannot do. This is critical in today’s world where everyone sees themselves as a digital photographer and therefore not needing the services of a professional. Virtual Backgrounds is the only tool that a professional can use that amateurs do not already have.
There are two components to a virtual background system, the projector which attaches to the photographer’s DSLR camera and a special incredibly reflective background screen. The backgrounds are produced by inserting transparencies (slides) or other light modifying media in the projector. The photographer sees both the subject and the projected background live in the camera viewfinder and when the shutter is tripped, both the subject and background are instantly captured and can be viewed immediately. There is no post processing…no computers…no software…none of the problems normally associated with green screen. The photographer has instant total control over the background in ways that are just not possible in standard photography. This results in greater custojmer satisfaction and higher saqles averages…and more fun that comes from being truly different. Virtual Backgrounds can make the difference between success and failure.
Many virtual background system owners report that they would not be in business without it. These are difficult times for professional photographers but fortunately there are solutions that enable the photographer to not only survive but thrive. Success and failure are both options.
A Virtual Background system is essentially comprised of 3 components.
The unit pictured is the VB Express, our newest release designed especially for the school, event, church, and studio photographer. The unit may at first seem complicated but it is really quite simple and very portable.
Light is projected through a transparency, on to a beamsplitter, and then on to the special projection screen behind the subject. The camera is any DSLR which can be attached to the projector in just seconds with a quick release mount.
The background screen is composed of billions of perfectly round glass beads that are more than 1,500 as reflective as white background paper. It is retroreflective. The screen can be wall mounted or available in a portable version which can be set up in minutes. One single background screen replaces all your canvas muslins and paper backgrounds and brings you an infinite variety of possibilities for new backgrounds. Amazingly, if a person tries to photograph the subject with their own camera, shooting over the photographer’s shoulder, they get no background and the subject will be nearly washed out!
With virtual backgrounds, the photographer can have an infinite variety of background transparencies with no storage problem. Anything can become a background. The concept is limitless. There is no need to purchase and store multiple muslins, canvas backgrounds or big bulky sets. They can all be projected. VB has available over 1,000 background images but it is especially desirable for the photographer to create background images of their own that no one else has.
