Our latest fun with greenscreens. See all of my greenscreen pics including Battlestar Galactica, American Idols and more!

The technique isn't that hard, but it does require great lighting (which is tricky at best) and software that makes it easy to drop out the green background. I'm using an old version of Express Digital's Sport and Event software (leftover from when I ran a photography company), but you could use Photoshop as well.
