Shoot a Green Screen Image

Successfully shooting a green screen (or blue screen) requires attention to detail.

Creating a believable composite image requires you to capture a usable green screen image. Although most software applications are capable of dealing with poorly acquired footage, you shouldn’t count on your application’s ability. Simply put, if you shoot a bad green screen, don’t be surprised if you wind up with a bad composite. Garbage in, garbage out.

Tip

For the purpose of this hack, green screen refers to any background that consists of a single, solid color, whether it’s green, blue, or some other color you decide to use. When I refer to, green you can substitute whatever color you are using.
