The computer-savvy artists at Expansive Art go beyond the camera lens, incorporating specialized software and high-tech equipment to tell the unique story of a person or family. The team at the photography studio specializes in creating photographic studies: a planned series of poses designed to elicit the subject's true character. A designer chooses the lighting and props, and a director oversees the entire process, guiding the photographer and subject through the expressive poses. Finally, a digital artist enhances the sequential shots with advanced software, creating special effects or textual additions. The crew frequently uses greenscreens during playful senior-photo shoots that cast the impending graduates as ninjas, vampires, or carbon copies of their parents, who they will someday become.
The company's separate, 8,000-square-foot show room displays a variety of decorative art, including reusable "wall tattoos" and photos backlit with LED displays. Guests can admire the large, colorful pieces while sipping a coffee at the in-house café.
