Chromakey (Green Screen) Photography
The use of Green Screen or Chromakey Photography is becoming increasingly popular where people want to make their events more fun, creative and colourful, whilst also adding an additional revenue stream. In fact, our sister company, Image Insight, has based one of its core products around it, with a number of our clients using it very successfully.
How does Chromakey Photography work?
Photos are taken of the subject against a (usually) green or blue background and then the background is automatically replaced with another, pre-produced image. Multiple background images can be available, allowing for a wide variety of images to be created at the touch of a button. This enables customers to obtain high quality photos of themselves and their families in all sorts of possible settings, which they would not normally be able to obtain.
