What would be the best and cheap option for chroma key background lights?
I've heard that halogen work lights from Wally-World @ about $10 each are good for that.
How big of a background are you trying to light?
For this I used two B800's and two large softboxes to illuminate the background. I have one on either side of the model.
In my experience the more even the lighting on the background the easier it is to remove the green in post. The far edges don't really matter if you don't have anything over the dark spots. Consistency behind your subject is the most critical.
Do you plan on using strobes to illuminate the subject?
Well, the background is 10x12' but it will be used for two people.
Yes, I was thinking about using strobes for the subject.
