Simple light green backgrounds


What do you need to get started with green screen photography?


And How to get best results during chroma photography -
  • A green background or a blue background.
    • Green color is not essential for getting the digital effect you want. You could easily use a blue screeen background and get the same digital effect as the green background. It wont make a difference. Just try to get whatever color out of blue or green is easily available and is economical.
    • This could be a canvas backdrop or paint on a wall.  If this is a canvas, muslin cloth is preferable as a backdrop. While it preferred by most software that the backdrop be neatly ironed, we understand it is not always practicle to iron the backdrop. So we designed our green screen program to work well with a reasonable level of wrinkles in the backdrop. You can hang the backdrop against a wall and spread it out nicely. If the background is paint, please make sure that the paint is  of decent quality but not at all glossy. The glossy paint is going to reflect light and leave hot spot reflections at several points where light reflection is maximum and it will spoil the overall compositing of the digital photo. In the end this will lead to poor results despite the best quality of the software. It not magic afterall!
  • Proper lighting
    • The lighting should be from at least two sides to evenly light up the background. The lighting should be such that the subject will leave no shadows. The better lit your backdrop is during the photo shoot, the better off you the results of the software! The color keying operation is better if lighting is even. But better lighting doesn't mean extra bright lights! Please be reasonable.
  • Proper clothing for the talent or the subject of the photography
    • While the sense of fashion is upto the model and to you, please do not wear shiny material. Please avoid wearing metallic accessories like  metallic band, jewellery etc. The reason for this is that these shiny surface will reflect the green background and over spill. Parts of the subject might get erased when the photo is composited using the software program.
  • Position of the talent
    • Keep her at least 6 feet from the green backdrop. Many people recommend a distance of about 8 feet from the green or blue backdrop but we understand that not everyone has the luxury of a large space in their studio.
  • Your photo camera and our green screen photography software. Remember, many professional photographers have used this technology before you.
  • Creativity!
    • We have worked hard and given our best to design our editing software to boost your creativity.  You can just focus on selecting the best suitable backdrops for your subjects.

About Post Production for photographers


Postproduction is the context of digital photography is the process of working on the photograph after it has been clicked by the digital  camera. Typical postproduction is performed by the use of appropriate digital software to improve the photograph by adjusting exposure,    contrast, brightness, colors, hues etc. Others could also be cropping, watermarking etc. Replacing background of digital photos brings a whole new interesting dimension to how the final finished picture presents itself. A subject could have been photographed inside a studio or a booth but could be shown in front of the statue of liberty!

Why use green background in photograph

Short answer to why green background for photos: It is most different from the human skin tones.
Long answer to why green: There are scientific and practical reasons behind using green backgrounds or blue backgrounds in photography. Suppose you use a black background behind the person being photographed. What would happen? The the black color is keyed out, the black color in the person's and eyes would also be masked out. That is, his hair would vanish and so would the color of his eyes (if black).  Similarly a pink background would make the pink in the skin of a person vanish.
Green and blue are the two color which have been known to effective in photo compositing because they are the farthest removed from the skin tones of most humans. However if a person has green hair, a green background would indeed make her hair disappear in the resulting processed photo. In such a case a blue background would be more suited.
In practical applications such as weather forecasting studios, professional advertising setups, green has become more popular because blue is also a color that is poplularly used in clothes, especially men's clothing be it shirts, coats, trousers, ties. Many times, there are blue shades that people wear and they tend to interfere with the blue background. Because of these reasons green has indeed become very popular with photographers and video studios alike.
