10. What is Aged Colour?

Aged colour is a process in which your portrait is converted to sepia tone (brown and white) and then a small amount of the original colour is allowed back in, ending up with a faded or "Aged" looking colour, which is a beautiful alternative to a full colour or sepia print.

11. Okay, then what is a vignette?

A vignette is a faded oval added around the edges of your portrait. The vignette softens your picture and brings the focus more to the subjects in the picture as opposed to the set and background. For a sample, see the first picture in our photo gallery on the Portraits link above.

12. What does Digital Green Screen or Chromakey Background mean?

This technology is commonly used in movies to place actors in a location which can not otherwise be filmed. In our studio, this technology allows us to place you and your friends or family on a background that we don't have inside our studio. The subjects are posed in front of a lime green backdrop, and once the portraits are uploaded to the computer, a new background is digitally imposed behind the subjects instead of the "Green Screen." If your pictures have been taken normally in front of our parlour background, please ignore all of the Chromakey Background/Movie Poster Names boxes on the reorder pages.
