White back ground is the most and easy to work with photo shop .I like the white a lot , you can blend it with many back ground .

The black is hard for me ,because my space is too small .

I do location only photography but I have a green and blue chromakey background I take with me on location and shoot a few on it. Then I use Primatte 3.0 to remove the background and move the image to whatever background I have. I have Digital Background maker so I can make whatever background I want to move it to. Plus I have some scenics I snapped last month I can use.

Is Primatte 3.0 works with still images since it's designed for use with Adobe affter effect software? and where I can find Digital Background maker ?
