Green Screen - Full Lighting vs. Shadows
Mar 16, 2013

I recently shot some green-screen footage using a Sony A57.  Tried to get the lighting as even as possible.  Results are here

Basement Karate Greenscreen Footage

As you can see, much of the footage containing the 'host,' has slight artifacts around her.  I can tweak the settings to clean it up, but I want to also shoot some actors in front of a green screen and have them properly lit as they'll appear in a scene--this means shadows.

How do I light actors, using flags to get the appropriate shadows, and still get the green screen evenly lit?
