Working with studio lighting can be a challenge, especially when you are just starting out. Fortunately, you don’t have to spend a lot of money to get started with studio portraiture. Consider this. Just how many sources of light does Earth have naturally? The sun, right? Consider the sky and amazingly, the ground beneath your feet that reflects light back into the darker shadows. The light that is reflected back is also known as fill light. If we didn’t have fill light in our everyday lives, we wouldn’t see any details and what we’d see would be completely black.

Sometimes a photographer is unable to find the perfect background to achieve a desired look for a portrait shoot. Thanks to digital photography, photographers can now remove the background and insert the perfect one for their needs. Green screen technology allows photographers to produce digitally enhanced photos also known as “Chroma keying.” Chroma keying is used by both professional and amateur photographers as a way to eliminate any on-site background challenges.
When you first think about the prospect of being able to set your photos to any location you want, it can be overwhelming, especially if you don’t consider yourself a computer whiz or a graphic design expert. But relax. Developing some basic skills of green screen photography is not rocket science. It simply requires that you take a little time to learn the techniques and practice with different backgrounds to see what you can do. Not only does a green screen make a great photo backdrop for still photos, but once you are used to the process, even videos will be possible using chroma key methods.
