Studio Me? (Yes, A Giveaway Too!]

Sponsored Review

Studio.Me is the first retail green-screen self-shoot photography studio in Singapore. If you’ve never heard about them, it’s time you did! I’ve been there twice and both times, I enjoyed myself tremendously. It’s such an ingenious idea – why didn’t anyone think about it earlier??

When I first heard of the concept of Studio.Me, I wondered to myself how nice photos can be taken without the presence of a professional photographer. But that’s the whole idea of Studio.Me. It’s basically a studio where you can select the background you like on the LED screen, pose and take your photos at your own pace in the privacy of your own studio. There is a 3-button foot panel provided in each studio for you to switch backgrounds and then snap a shot when you are ready. It’s as simple as that!

The 1st time the husband brought us to Studio.Me, I brought my family along and we had a crazy time posing and snapping really funny and silly shots. They were so funny we arranged another day just to see the photos together and laugh all over again. I frankly didn’t think it would be that fun, but it was, even for the old folks! So, when I was offered a second session at Studio.Me, I very excitedly invited my best friends to go with me!

This is basically what the studio looks like.

It’s a green backdrop as you can see, and Studio.Me uses a technology known as Chroma Key Compositing, which digitally removes the green background and replaces it with the background that you have chosen before the shot. The end result will be shown on the LED screen on the spot. Apart from that, there are fun props such as glasses, wigs, bags, microphones, hats, bears etc, provided for you to use to make your photos more interesting!

Apart from the standard backgrounds provided all-year round, Studio.Me also introduces special themed background during special occasions. When we were there the first time round, there was the Halloween theme, and this time round, we got the Christmas theme! Love how lovely all the backgrounds are, and we had so much fun snapping and snapping in the studios! Even the kids have become pro at this – This whole system is so simple to operate that the kids can take lots of selfies themselves!

Amazed at the high quality of the shots? Studio.Me uses professional photography equipment, so you can rest assured that all the shots would be high-definition and suitable for large prints if needed.

Check out some of the shots we took that day! Yes, you do need a little dramatic genes inside of you to maximize the fun out of this one.

I think you get the idea by now, ya? The gist is to just pose and have fun snapping!!! At the end of your session, all the photos will be saved into a CD and handed to you. So the faster you snap, the more photos you’ll get at the end of it all! If you like, you can also opt for the photos to be printed into canvases, or large printouts for you at additional charges.
