We all know that is neither real nor possible. It is the designing department that is responsible for designing attractive backgrounds and other effects for the photograph.

Editing department
A photo is never complete until the editing team has processed it. This team is responsible for using various software to edit the photo to adjust its colour scheme, placement, pixels, size and resolution etc. if you are good at using editing software, you do not need to take pictures. You will get them prepared for you.

Marketing department
This department has no link with the photo production. However it is the most important department, and care should be taken while selecting this team because they are the ones who are going to deal with the clients, manage appointments, build company profiles and think of innovative ways to attract people to add a business to their company. They are the strategy makers and always act as ambassadors of the company.
