If you never have done one of these sessions, it can be a fun experience, especially during the post production phase. This where you choose the background of your choice. Most photographers who do this type of work will give you the choice of backgrounds. Depending on their library, you can choose from an mixed inventory of patterns and textures. Some photographers even have stock photography shots you can choose.
"Chroma key photography, also known as green screen photography, is a process that allows you to replace a solid colored background with a background of your choice. This technique has been used in the film industry for years but it is now becoming very popular with photographers as well." - BRYAN WILDE
So what's the point of all this? Well, very simple. Green Screen Photography gives a low cost way for clients to have their photos taken. Some photographers charge a small fee and then let the client set their own price by choosing how many photos you want to purchase. See our pricing here as an example. Green Screen photography has opened up a great market for people to have their photos taken easily and not burn a hole in their pockets.
The Imagination Factor
You can be placed on a beach in Jamaica or on the green fields of the midwest. Ok, lets talk locale. How about in a scene of antique furniture? Maybe you like something more urban, windows, brick walls, mirrors, stainglass even. Any of these objects can then be placed behind your photo. Its a real interesting and artsy idea.
Want to keep it simple, choose backgrounds such as floral or modern, how about some pizazz? How about the grunge look? Maybe something more subtle. The libraries are always growing and the ideas are always flowing. What a photographer can do with green screen technigues are only limited by his/her imagination, "The Green is the Thing".
