Learning to shoot green screen removes tons of time and budget limitations; instead of scouting and shooting on location, you can digitally recreate the background of your scene. This course takes you through the steps of shooting both photography and video on green screen. Authors Rich Harrington and Abba Shapiro walk you through the process of preparing a live-action set, from hanging the backdrop to lighting the subject with strobes; positioning and posing your subject; and completing the scene with postproduction techniques in Adobe After Effects, Photoshop, and Premiere Pro. Learn how to composite your footage against a new digital background plate, match the color and exposure, adjust focus, and perform keying for motion.

Rich Harrington: Hi, I'd like to welcome you to this course on Green Screen Photography and Video. My name is Rich Harrington. Abba Shapiro: And I'm Abba Shapiro. Rich: And today we've got a lot of great things to tackle. Now just to give you a little bit of our background, Abba and I both work in the photo and video industry, and we're going to take a look at a real-world shoot here and sort of focus on both shooting photography and video, back to back on the same set. Abba: Now, one of the things about shooting photography is you're using strobes, and it's a whole different type of light and lighting. But a lot of times, there is a situation where you need to get both stills and video, and we're going to tackle that.
Rich: Yeah, so you're going to learn how to shoot both stills and video simultaneously as well as best practices when lighting for just photography or just video. So it's a great way to get started. We're going to take a look at a real-world project, and let's jump in.
