How to Light a Green Screen


A properly lit green screen is essential to creating effective and realistic composites, but it can often be difficult to pull off. In the following video, Doug Guerra, from B&H, gives a quick breakdown of what it takes to get it right, including lighting your green screen evenly, keeping distance from your subject and the screen, and being aware of the final scene when lighting your subject. Armed with this knowledge, your green screen composites will be more convincing, easier to create, and much less stressful.
