uLite Green Screen Photo Lighting Kit
We have created a complete kit including everything you need (minus the camera and computer) to superimpose an image onto any backdrop. Travel to Paris, place a baby on the flower pedal or step foot on the moon without having to go anywhere.
Chroma-key green that is. The magic behind this whole process is the green screen. Included in this kit is a 9' x 10' extra-large green screen backdrop that is constructed from a heavy-duty wrinkle-resistant matte fabric. You simply hang this background onto any wall or background system using the included pole pocket and grommets. Once hung, place your subject at least 3' in front of the backdrop and take your photo. (Make sure you frame only your subject and the green screen.) Why 3'? This helps to avoid any shadows on your backdrop that would need to be taken out during post production.
The next step.
The next step is correctly lighting your backdrop and your subject. The uLite was designed to do just that.
Although the uLites are designed to be compact in nature, they project an extremely broad area of light coverage. Basically, you can light a larger area with a smaller box. This is achieved by placing the removable diffusion front flush with the outer edge of the softbox and the narrow depth of the softbox. This simple 2-light setup will properly light both your subject and the 9' x 10' included backdrop.
Simple set up.
The uLite is one of the first collapsible softboxes designed to give you the amazing light quality of a traditional style softbox, without the tedious set up. With one simple push, your softbox takes form and locks into place.
Powerful tungsten halogen lamps.
The included two 500-watt lamps offer plenty of power to make sure both your subject and green screen are properly lit. Lamps are rated for over 60 hours of use.
Adobe Photoshop Elements Trial
If you don't already have any software, don't worry, we'll get you started with a free trial of Adobe Photoshop Elements. As an added bonus, the DVD included in this kit features education directly from the experts at the National Association of Photoshop Professionals. If you already have PhotoShop, we cover that too! (Adobe Photoshop is a trademark of Adobe Systems Incorporated.)
As an added bonus, we have also included a DVD containing 10 high-quality JPEG images to get you started. Keep in mind, there are a ton of stock images offering you even more endless possibilities.
Last but not least education.
Now that you have all the proper equipment to correctly light for green screen, the last element is to teach you all the ins and outs of how this all works. The included educational DVD covers everything imaginable from set up to lighting and subject positioning, post production, dos and don'ts and more.
Green Screen Digital Photography Kit
Magically go anywhere in minutes with this complete Green Screen Photo Kit. Whether you're a novice or seasoned pro, this kit contains everything needed to master the art of green screen technology.
The included fast, fun and easy software automatically extracts the included green screen background from behind your subject. This allows for insertion of any one of the 100 included digital backgrounds. Provide finishing touches using the software's editing and positioning tools.
How it works.
First, you take the included green screen background and two wall hooks out of the box. We always recommend putting the background in a dryer and tumble dry low on delicate for a few minutes. This will help insure your background is free from wrinkles. Then, hang the background onto any flat surface using the included wall hooks. These hooks are designed to be easily removed without leaving any residue. Make sure your background is straight and pulled taught.
Next, position your subject at least 2' (.6 m) in front of the green screen background. This helps prevent any shadows from appearing on the background. Then, take your photo. HINT! Make sure that only your background and subject are framed in the photograph.
The fun begins!
Now the fun begins. You simply import your photo into any MAC or PC computer. Using the software, with just one click the green screen background is automatically extracted. Another click, and import any one of the 100 digital backgrounds included.
Get creative with the included 100 digital backgrounds for any occasion including: holiday, sports, children, abstract, whimsical, landmarks, futuristic, music and more.
Most software programs include only low-quality images. All images included within this kit are high-quality allowing your picture to be crisp and blown up to larger sizes.
The fun doesn't stop there. This software is also designed so that you can import virtually ANY JPEG image as your backdrop. You can even put your daughter in her own dollhouse! So, get creative with even more endless possibilities.
Place the final touches.
Once your background is chosen, put the finishing touches on with these included software features: crop, auto key color, spill suppression, brightness, contrast, saturation, blur, image flip, rotation, scale, transparency, overlay and more.
