Yes, we shoot greenscreen and give the customers their choice of backgrounds. We deliver prints on site using Dye-sub printers.

If you don't like the cost of the camranger then you REALLY wont like the cost of that stand. They start at a couple hundred bucks and go up. For your use I would recommend getting a lightstand mount.

My personal favorite is the Grifiti Nootle brand. Amazon link: http://a.co/5p9ZA9E (external link)
I use one for my surface pro. It holds better than it looks like it would. The grip itself has a 1/4 20 thread. You could mount to the top of the stand with a umbrella mount, or use the clamp to use on a tripod leg.

Thanks for the altenative link. That would be my better option. Not that I don't want to spend the money at all, just that I am not busy to make the big jump on getting the camranger and the stand for it to just collect dust. I am sure I may have good use on personal/family pictures but I don't charge them as that is how I get my practice in. So that is out of the question.

A bit off subject, do you add the background in photoshop or what program do you use? If you don't mind me asking. I was asked to do a Military Ball in April. I mostly do sweet 16 events so I don't have appropriate backgrounds for the ball.

Thanks again for the help.

Military balls are not for the faint of heart.

For a group of 1000 guests we will do about 120 to 150 packages in 4 to 5 hrs. Takes a crew of 4 minimum.

One does sales, helping people decide on packages and backgrounds. Larger groups 2 people.
One handles money and hands out finished prints.
One shoots
One processes prints.

I would rather not post our full workflow publicly. If you would like details PM me.
