Here's a couple pictures from Malakoff, boys and girls basketball team. 3 light setup on a green screen.
Here's the BTS shot of my set up. I shoot at F8 or higher so the edges of the model is pretty sharp. Then I select the green with the quick selection tool, invert the selection and then contract it by 1 or 2 pixels before I make my mask. Then I go into refine edge (can't remember what they call it now) and use the refine edge tool, smooth 1 pixel contrast slider to 10 and shift edge to either -15 or 20 depending on the hair I have to mess with. Then after I get the mask pretty much how I want it I place my images on the background. If there's any contamination spill I select the image (not the mask) and then paint with a brush set to color blend mode at 30% opacity sampling as close to the original color as I need so I sample several times. That usually does the trick. If I have enough room I seldom need to do that except for blonde hair.
Your models stand near that gizmo on the floor? It looks like that would put them just in front of the lights on each side, correct?
Yes, that's my starting point for each model. It's just about at the front of the side soft boxes. If I can stand them there it gets me pretty close then if I need to I can fine tune it. That is actually just a reflector from one of my 360's.
Makes sense. Thank you for sharing!
