Well here we are in one of our studios, it's actually one of our green screen rooms, and as you can see behind me we have the green screen. There are different types of lighting for studio, I'm going to show you just the basics. Basically what we have for green screen lighting is, we have the hard light or the key light which is going to shine on my hair and separate me from the green screen itself. Secondly we'll have this soft bank, which will light the green screen independently. So the green screen being lit independently, the hard light separating me from the green screen, the last thing we need is a source light. Now I'm actually using a smaller source light which will come and give me a nice soft lighting, as in with portraiture, and with the hard light separating me from the green screen and the green screen being lit independently, I'll really pop off the screen and I'll be able to adjust a lot of the settings in post production.
