Blue/Green screen
« on: March 30, 2010, 06:37:36 PM »
Anyone has experience in shooting green/blue screen and then photoshop background? Where can I get the screen? Any recommendation of the screen? Any reference reading will be appreciated!

You should shoot on a neutral background if you want to impose a background later in photoshop. The keyed backgrounds such as green screens are meant for video and will cast a colored hue on your subject. I've had clients shoot stills on a green screen thinking that would make it easier for me, but added work with all the color correction I had to do around the fringe.

Either way, bhphoto.com carries them all! :)

There is a video editing software sold at Best Buy some years ago that did that!
It actually came with it's own Blue/Green screen http://www.greenscreenwizard.com/

I agree with Betty.  Although in the CS5 there is an option for color desaturation but why put yourself through an additional step if you dont have too.
