by Sam Cameron Innovative Writer in Australia


Going green has become a new normal these days. It helps you stand out from the crowd and is quite attention seeking. Green screen widens the perspectives of your photos. These are also easy to set up and operate. From its look, it looks quite simple yet elegant.

It technically refers to as using a green backdrop initially, thereafter replacing it with any other image of your choice. Basically Green Screen for Hire in Sydney normally allows its users to choose their own customized backgrounds. Two crucial things that you need are a solid color backdrop and even lightning system.

Listing down few important steps that Pros take while using Green Screen Photo Booths:

  • The primary step to focus upon is to ensure even lightning at all places covering the scene. If you are using a green screen, make sure to avoid any other lightning shadows. Quite often standard overhead lightning and halogen lights may cast a yellow shadow on the green background. To avoid this you must change your camera’s white balance to tungsten. Also it is essential to use a uniform hue green background as with lightning shadows, the color tends to darken and lighten.  

  • Be well prepared! Once you have ensured the generation of proper lights and uniform hue, next comes the choice of camera and its adaptations. Not all cameras are suited to adapt this mode of photo booth. Cameras such as mirrorless cameras namely: Sony Alpha a7SII or Panasonic GH5 Lumix C4K. Also be prepared to click pictures of people of varying heights.  

  • In order to avoid backdrop shadows due to the subject itself, you may position them at least 1 foot away or 3-6 feet away. This will ensure that the subject will not cast its own shadow on the background hue. Here, you can make marks on the ground as essentially kids have the habit of leaning backwards while standing!

  • Now once you have chosen your camera, settled backdrop issues and changed the settings to tungsten, Photo Booth Rental in Sydney ensure their best to remove even the subtle shadows. At times in spite of all the protective measures to avoid shadows, you still tend to get a black spot on the green screen. Adjust lights in order to illuminate the background either by wrapping around the subject or by use of additional shadows!

  • The kind of wrap you use is also a matter of consideration! Use only soft wraps around your lightning equipments. Here are two ways of doing so, either you can wrap it all around your subject to minimize the chances of shadows or you can use lights to illuminate the back of the subject.

  • Your camera must be set to have a low f-stop number, must be of shallow depth – of – field and must focus directly on your subject rather than elsewhere. Playing up with focus may tend to create shadows, but if you place focus on the subject, this will lead to blurred background thus reducing imperfections.

This is becoming increasingly popular these days. Hope the above Pro steps come handy when you plan to go gaga over green screens!
