Quick question. I noticed a show the other night on National Geographic, during the onscreen interviews the background was a dark, rich black. It looked really nice, the only thing you focused on was the talking head.
How did they do this? Was it in front of a green/blue screen and than key in the black?
I do it in portrature all the time.
plain paper background roll.
black velvet backdrops help if you can’t control all the light, but they’re really expensive.
