I have a photogenic small dog and often use her for greeting cards and so on. It would be nice to choose different backgrounds according to the season etc.
At the moment, my equipment is primitive, literally a Huawei P-Smart mobile phone. Max resolution [4:3] 13 MP. I'm considering something better, especially if it will do double duty as a webcam.
I am quite skilled with editing in Microsoft Paint (don't laugh !!!) and have made some pretty good cards but finding the edges of a hairy dog isn't easy by hand.
It would make my pictures editing a lot easier if I could photo my dog and other subjects against a green-screen background and use better software to edit them into background scenes.
Does the screen have to be green? Why? Wouldn't any neutral, even background such as blanket do? What is the science?
If I decide to dye a bed sheet, is there any special shade of green that I should use? If so, what is special about that shade?
I live in a smallish flat and my dog is small so I don't need or want anything large in the way of a screen let alone a studio.
I realise now that it would have been useful to post a picture. I cut around the edges of the blanket in Paint and then pasted onto a stock background.
