Chromakey / Green-Screen

We have a 3m wide ‘Chromakey’ green vinyl backdrop which is perfect for adding whatever background you wish digitally on your computer afterwards using simple software (just like they do with ‘CGI’ effects in the movies!)

This really is something special and some amazing effects have been obtained (some of which are shown to the left to give you some ideas). We have a large selection of digital backgrounds available and can recommend FXhome PhotoKey 6 software as an easy-to-master way to let your imagination run wild and achieve some incredible images.

Basically if you can dream it – you can do it! Just shoot your subject against the green vinyl background and then superimpose them onto whatever background you wish – from a luxurious mansion or swish penthouse apartment, to an industrial wasteland or even in front of a well-known landmark! You can also add a single colour or textured background – or even add one of your own images as a backdrop if you wish.

So, instead of taking-up valuable studio time building sets and splashing out cash on dressing those sets, now you can take care of all that simply and with little expense using CGI. Assistance with lighting for Chromakey effects is available on request as is advice on how to use FXHome Photokey 6 software to digitally add backgrounds to your studio shots.

Below is a very small selection of the backgrounds we have on-file (many more can be sourced from on-line picture agencies for a small fee) along with a few examples to give you an idea of the effects that can be achieved. The examples were all shot with our resident model Lynzi in the studio (as in the overview shots) in just one hour on the Green-Screen vinyl backdrop roll, with the backgrounds being added digitally afterwards (so none of those props or sets actually existed at the time the shot was taken!)
