12/19/2012 1:00 PM EST - Lighting for Composite Portraits




Green Screen Your Subject in Any Environment!



Before and After Image Demo



Wouldn’t it be nice to offer to shoot your clients anywhere in the world? A young athlete in a professional stadium filled with fans, a performer on stage with a black-tie audience? Perhaps a travel shot with your client in a South Pacific island, or a science fiction fan on the bridge of a starship? If you’re not familiar with green screen portraits and compositing, take a look at the incredible photography of people like Joel Grimes and Paul Aresu to see this taken to the ultimate level.

Join host Joe Brady as he explores and demonstrates the gear and workflow to produce professional results. Learn how to use a green screen with lights and metering the whole set to produce studio portraits which seamlessly and invisibly merge with backgrounds you choose.

You’ve all seen cheesy portraits with terrible, unbelievable backgrounds where the subject looks cut out and pasted into the scene. Offer your clients something both beautiful and different at a professional level. Visit with us as we explore the techniques to get you started on the path to producing incredible results.

I really enjoyed your seminar, particularly, the way you interact with your beautiful partner. Too many photographers in shows treat the lady as an empty pretty artifact and not as a person with talent and beauty. Only one question: Who sells the green muslin 12 x 15 and the software as a kit as you mentioned it? Close

Excellent webinar. And I also missed it on the day it showed, due to a photo shoot. I have been doing composites on Photoshop which will end Monday morning as I order the software. Sekonic meters are the best, have used them in the studio for years. And in the field. Close

A really excellent webinar, which unfortunately I missed on the day but am pleased to have now seen. I already have the FXhome Photokey Pro software and it is really easy to use. It was good to see the lighting sets and the whole production was a superb example of lighting correctly and getting the best from good green screen shoots. Well Done all. Close
