Green Screen Photography for Holiday Parties

Industry Perspective ( December 2007)

Green screen is a really popular type of event photography that we do here at Orange. During the holiday season, many of our clients ask for green screen photography which entails shooting against a chroma-key backdrop. Then the background is dropped out digitally and the image is then put onto whatever other image/scene you want. At one of our Saturday evening parties, our client had us shoot several different scenes from around the world. Here's three photos showing how green screen photography is done.

Step 1 - take the shot against the chroma key background:

Step 2 - using software, drop out the background and put the people by themselves into the new scene:

(Note: this was our very first test shot so usually it's a bit cleaner)

Step 3 - create the final image:
