Chapter 3Basic Shooting Setups

The foundational elements for shooting all green screen setups are the materials used and the lighting of the background and the foreground subjects, including how these elements are positioned in relation to each other. Using the right combination of background materials, lighting, and positioning will save you hours of time during the keying or matte extraction process. The information in this book will guide you through these processes in various situations and production circumstances; but the basics, covered in this chapter, are always much the same.
