In film, video or photographic production, a green screen stage tip is a tool that can make the difference between an excellent piece of production and a mediocre production. To achieve a professional, interesting and exciting production, actors, filmmakers, photographers and other users of green screen or “chroma key” technology would be at an advantage using the following tips: The first green screen stage tip is to strike a good pose. In photography, the subject should pose in a manner that will make it easier for the photograph to blend with the background that will be introduced on the chroma key screen. For instance, if a background of the highest mountain is to be mounted, the final production would look more authentic if the subject poses in a manner likely to suggest that they are standing next to the mountain and so forth.
The other green screen stage tip is to use good backgrounds. The background to be introduced should be good, artistic and captivating. The quality of the background should be good such that it is in tandem with the portrait. Likewise, the photograph or video should be of a high quality to match with the good, high quality background.
Lighting for the photograph and the background should both be matching. There should be a uniform outlook in terms of lighting, and evenness in brightness both for the photograph and the background. This is another important green screen stage tip that will give excellent results. In addition, in order to achieve high quality production, the pictures should be clear and sharp. Blurred and dull pictures would not do any justice in matching the background and the subject. This stage tip is important in enhancing good quality of the image and the final production.
Another green screen stage tip that should go without saying is the need for appropriate attire to match with the intended background. That is to say, if for instance the background is intended to be a desert, it would be outrageous to have the subjects dressed up in winter clothing. Not to forget about the equipment to be used, this is an equally important stage tip to bear in mind. For excellent results, the camera, lights, background and the chroma key screen itself should be of the highest quality possible. Digital cameras are preferred for photography. Naturally, and even more important, you should know how to use the equipment well.
The other green screen stage tip is the possibility of color adjustment. With good knowledge of using the equipment such as the digital camera, one should be able to adjust color, tint, hue and shades to bring out the best results that are in harmony with the background. Other tips include the necessity to have the final production in mind. This gives a guideline during editing. Lastly, it is advisable to take many shots so that there are a variety of shots to correspond with the various backgrounds available.
