    PS can't wait to see how your green screen idea works out after your AHR. Sounds so cool!
    I'll post pics before then. Once it comes in I'll take some pictures with it to try it out. Then we'll use it at my bachelorette party in april. I want NYC & chip & dale backgrounds :)

        Here is a sample of what I plan on doing at the party we are having this weekend. My friend requested all the pugs be added.

                  I'll post the steps once it comes in. This is how I think it will work:

                  1. i'll take peoples pictures in front of the screen. I think I'll need to have them stand on either a green floor cover or some of the screen.

                  2. use magic eraser in photoshop (one click & the background is gone)

                  3. select them & paste them onto a new background.

                  The green is good because people are probably not wearing a shade that bright. If it was a black screen, there would likely be overlap with their clothes or hair. It would then be harder to remove the background.

                  I think it might be tricky to get the lighting right. I don't have studio lights. We need to avoid shadows as much as we can. I haven't really figured out hiw this will work.

                  My plan for this weekend is to take people's pictures during the aprty. Then I'll photoshop them through the week & upload them onto a website so everyone can see their picture & take a copy. If it goes well, I'll do this at my bachelorette party & AHR. I'll let y'all know how it goes.
