Green Screen Stage: Lighting

One of the biggest issues of successfully working with a green screen stage is evenly lighting it. The screen itself calls for its very own lighting; independent from the foreground subject lights. The main element is to equally light your screen, while steering clear of the formation of shadows. You preferably want your screen to represent a single, consistent color. Remember, since you’re trying to utilize the narrowest colour range as you can, shadows expand the range, and are a factor to diminished outcomes. When you have shadows (darker colors), they might not be found by the camera, and because of this; those areas won’t be replaced. If you are working with a low-budget set up, shadows grow to be more difficult to stop because of the less expensive, less specialized materials utilized. This is why it’s actually very much more important to make sure your lights are as even as possible, especially when working with lower budget configurations. Employing a minimum of 2 lights (the more the better), you need to direct light inwards from either side, and from underneath; modify till you make the most even lighting. Using diffusion filters makes a huge difference in this step. They significantly lower the incident of shadows. Then, once you include your subject, you could discover the subject’s foreground lights casts shadows on the screen; you have to readjust your screen lights and filter systems for the screen color evenness once again.
