I'm using PS Elements 3 and trying to understnd the use of a green screen with digital photography Help! Please! In doing a portrait I have problems with hair. I want to use the green screen and drop in another background. You can tell I'm new at this.Is there a book that can walk me thru the process?
Thanks Chuck

Chuck,

I have no idea what you mean by the term "Green Screen"? But, if you're brand new to Elements and looking for a book that will get you going on the right track I would recommend Photoshop Elements 3: The Missing Manual by Barbara Brundage.

You can also do google searches for different techniques. They may be for Photoshop CS but many times can be done exactly the same in Elements.

Hope that helps.

Allen

Chuck, I'm assuming you are using a green screen and want to remove the green from an image. I 'm sending you some tutorials in a pm.

Good Luck,

Bill

I feel the hair issue makes the drop out screen too much work and not worth it. I suggest that you will enjoy your photography more if you keep the post processing to a minimal. Plan your lighting in advance to save all that extra work.

Above is a gradient background technique from Scott Kelby‚Äôs book ‚ÄúThe Photoshop Elements 3 Book‚Ä?.

The model is Arielle.

I agree with the previous comments ... keep your post production work to a minimum and you'll be happier. That said ... with a little pre-production planning you can get some great results replacing the background in Photoshot --without the green screen.

For example, I use a yellow/orange seemless backdrop when I know I'm going to put the model in front of a sunset. I use a sky blue background when I know I'm going to put her in front of the sky. Get the picture? If you match the color of your seemless background to the ultimate color of the image you're replacing it with, you don't have to be as exact around the hair.

Here are two examples of what I mean. Avalon was shot against a white seemless, then I added the runway image from another shoot I did.


Natalie was shot against a sky blue seemless background - FYI, she's kneeling on beige carpet!
