I am in the planning stage of a small home studio. The general idea is to start out with the bare minimum and slowly replace the "cheap" stuff with the "good" stuff. The studio will be strictly for personal use to shoot friends and family. My question is backgrounds. Is it worth the time and effort to use a chroma key background or better to just go ahead an purchase the backgrounds I expect to use? I know chroma key will allow me to use infinite backgrounds, but the extra editing steps worry me as well as ending up with "fake" looking images. I have also considered purchasing the backgrounds I expect to use but include a chroma key as well just for versatility. To put it plain and simple, chrom key scares me....mostly because I don't know anything about it. Does anyone have any sugestions?
You have to light greenscreens very very well and evenly to make removing them easier in post. You can get away with 1 flash to light a real background, but may need more for a greenscreen.
