Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Removing the background for subjects not shot on a chroma key, part of Green Screen Techniques for Video and Photography.
Rich Harrington: We've been keying with a nice green screen, but sometimes people don't have it,…so in this case we'll open up that image, and it's pretty straightforward, this is just…a thing you did on normal photo paper, right?…Abba Shapiro: Right, and this is a tough one to do because normally I would have shot her on…a different color background because her dress has a lot of white in it, and that does make it more challenging.…So what you want to do if you can't shoot green screen, and you're shooting on paper,…and you know you want to do a key, if the roles are different color--in this case gray…would have worked out well--or if I had lit it so that the white really was blown out,…it would have made it easier. But we're not going to make it easy on ourselves because…we want to show that you can you do it even if you have a challenging shot.…
So I'm going to go ahead to that end and actually post the saturation here because remember,…we're going to push this up for now, but then we can come back in and bring it back down.…
