    Hi All,

    I'm new to the forum and would be interested in hearing from anyone who is regularly using chroma key techniques for advertising photography, techniques, tips, etc. I have just started to venture down this road and would be interested in others experiences.
    Here is a sample:

    For what it's worth...
    You don't really need to used colored 'chromakey' backgrounds for this. In fact, it can often be a worse idea than using a plain white/black/grey background. For example, you have to be aware that the background color can be picked up by the subject. I think I can detect just a tiny bit of green on the left side of that Monster adapter.

    The idea behind using the color, is that it makes it easy to remove the background, especially for video where it's probably done automatically. And yes, it can make it easier for still photos as well, but if you are careful about your lighting and don't let the subject blend into the background, it's just as easy to pull it off of a white/black background and you don't have to worry about the color issue.
