Testing Equipment and Editing

With the help of a couple friends I have been testing some new equipment and methods for removing the green screen and cast for portraits.

Equipment List:
– Canon 70D dSLR with Canon EF Lens 50mm 1:1.89 STM lens
– Canon Speedlite 430EX III-RT flash
– Manfrotto 294 Aluminum Tripod with 3-Way Head
– Impact Background Support System – 12′ Wide
– Prism Backdrops by Ravelli 6×10′ Chromakey Green Muslin Backdrop
– Life of Photo 12 x 12″ Inch 18% Gray Reference Reflector Card
– StudioPRO 3200 Watt Double 24″x36″ Softbox Lighting with 14 45W light bulbs

Each set of two photos is a before and after editing with Lightroom and Photoshop. The first set is my friend Jeff. My settings for the camera were iso-100, f/8, 1/25 sec.

The second two sets are my friend Patrick. My settings for both sets were iso-100, f/5, 1/125 sec. An indirect flash was also used on both of Patrick’s sets.

The third two sets are my friend Riley. In the first set my camera was set at iso-100, f/5.6, 1/125 sec. The second set was iso-100, f/5, 1/125 sec. An indirect flash was also used on both of Riley’s sets.

Green screen and cast removal methods are from the Photoshop Mama video series on youtube. The first of the series can be found at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K2IIfMjf_iI
