RoboStage is a whole new concept in studio management. TopModelGroup’s started a project that allows the user to control the studio adjustments through their browsers. Here photographers can select the background, lightning conditions and equipments before starting the shoot.
You might be thinking of it as a virtual environment but its not virtual it is an actual photoshoot which will have a real model and studio staffs, a live chat feature is allowed to talk to the staffs and models present at the actual studio.
The concept will allow the users to shoot through your browser from any place in the world. The studio adjustments are controlled through an on screen dashboard and chat with the models and staffs of the studio. When all the adjustments would be done the user will get an on screen live stream of the camera and a on screen control system that will allow the user to control the movements and handling of the camera which is supported by a robotic arm in the studio.
The project will break all the geographical and financial restrictions that affect many models and photographers indulged in the fashion photography.
Presently the project is raising fund for itself on indiegogo. It has been said that if they manage a fund of $75k in the coming 2 months the project will be started in 2015 itself.
