Green Screen Photography

19/05/2009

Forget what you hear on television or from anyone with a ‘can do attitude’, dreams are make believe. Generally we day dream about our thoughts, things that could happen in the future, or things that have happened in the past. I always look over my old travel photo’s and remember meeting the people, soaking up the atmosphere, and most importantly being there! Green screen photography is one method we can artificially place ourselves in locations almost to tell a story; fiction or non fiction!

Here is an excellent green screening tutorial on youtube!

In order to crop cut my self cleanly from the original photo and paste it onto the new photo I photographed myself infront of a white back ground (didn’t have acess to a green screen unfourtunately). This made the ‘magic wand’ tool in photoshop alot easier to use so I could isolate the image of my body.

Another creative way in which I have used green screen photography is to star myself in films I enjoy. Check out below!
