Bill's comments: "My role at Stagelight is Webmaster and Staff photographer.
I use high end digital SLR equipment for the cast poster photo shoot (Canon EOS 1D Mark II with 28-70/2.8L lens). I photograph the lead cast members in RAW mode on a blue screen using studio flashes, and import into Adobe Photoshop using the Adobe Camera RAW converter.
"Prior to Primatte I would use the Photoshop 'Extract' tool, but it was very time consuming and the results were not always the best quality. With Primatte the process is much quicker and gives better results - a win win!"
