Portrait Program

Sage Tweed Portrait Program - Green Screen

As you plan to use one of our portrait programs it’s important that you consider all of the variables and allow enough time to be fully prepared on picture day. Not only do you need to make sure you have the background and equipment necessary for the shoot but also that you’re approved for KO Services at H&H and your prepay flyer is printed or your proof plan is setup with our design team.

Once you’ve chosen your capture background and have all of the equipment you’ll need on-hand, testing and flyer design usually takes between 10-15 working days. Look at your calendar and consider if you have the time needed to complete the setup by picture day.

Lighting

Sage Tweed Green Screen Lighting Diagram

Sage Tweed Green Screen Lighting Diagram - click image for larger view

All light values are measured with a light meter that has been calibrated to match the exposure value of the camera(s). The camera and meter ISO is set to 100. The camera’s f-stop will be f8 and the shutter speed will be 125th of a second. All light measurements will be based on this, ISO 100 and the camera will be set to f8 @ 125th of a second. Follow the lighting diagram for the position of the lights.

MAIN LIGHT = 45” UMBRELLA

  • Approximately 60 inches high
  • 11’ from background
  • Measure this light with the fill light on. Point the dome of the light meter at the camera. The combined value of both the main light and the fill light firing at the same time is f8. This is the f-stop to set your camera to.

FILL LIGHT = 45” UMBRELLA

  • Approximately 66 inches high
  • 12'6" from background
  • Measure this light with a light meter by itself at f4.5. Point the dome of the light meter at the camera.

HAIR/SEPARATION LIGHT = STRIP LIGHT

  • Position the hair light on a boom arm above & slightly behind the subject
  • Meter this light with all 3 lights firing. Position the meter at an average head height for the age of your subjects. Point the dome of the meter at the hair light. This light should measure f5.6 to f5.6½.

In your testing be sure to keep the background as evenly lit as possible! If you see any shadows adjust your main & hair/separation lights to eliminate all shadows.
