Green Screen Portrait

Green Screen Portraits

We started creating Green Screen portraits in mid 2016. Here’s a small sample of what we’ve got going so far. Much more to come!

Chroma keying or Green Screen is a technique used for combining two or more frames or images by replacing a color or a color range in one frame with that from the another frame. It is often used in television and the film industry to replace a scene’s background by using a blue or green screen as the initial background and placing the actor in the foreground.

The principle behind Chroma keying (Green Screen) is that the color green is the opposite color of skin tone, so a distinction between the two is very clear, making it easier to select and remove the color without worrying about any part of the actor being included in the selection. The whole green selection is then replaced with another frame as the background.
