Achieving a deep green or bi-color photograph is an art form unto itself. The full spectrum of colors and the natural tones that they represent has to be achieved naturally, and this is why it takes a lot of practice and patience to perfect this. The first step in achieving such a richly colored photograph is to find a location that is ideally suited for the taking of such a photo. This is because the earth's surface texture and all other factors will have a great influence on how the photograph is taken. Ideally, one should be able to have the photographer set up his camera on a relatively open ground, so that he can get a clear shot at all times.
The next step is to make use of the available color castings. The natural color of the land and surrounding environments can give the photographer a good base for his work. However, there is also the option of using rich color castings that depict a completely different world. For instance, a shot that would look good in a natural environment with a deep green background, may seem totally out of place when taken with such a color cast.
When the color castings are done, the photographer should try as much as possible to stay away from the blue or the yellow ones. He should settle for more neutral hues, like the green, brown and even the silver ones. If the natural ground is rocky, then this could also enhance the richness of the image. The only way to achieve this is by making use of contrasting textures, such as rough and smooth stones.
Once the photographer has selected the proper location for his work, the setting should be cleared of all obstacles such as trees and buildings so that he can take the picture with the deep green background. This means that all the clutter must be removed from the surroundings so that only the greens will be visible. Then, it is time to choose the right photograph. While this may sound too much work, it is actually very easy. As long as you are prepared to put in the effort, you can definitely get the perfect result.
First, you have to choose the photograph that you want to be projected onto the green background. After that, you have to pick out a photo which is free of red eye and other optical corrections. Try and shoot in natural light as well. This is because using artificial lights will distort the subject which will ruin the whole effect. It is important that you make sure that your subject appears natural and not contrived.
After selecting a photograph, you have to erase all the background clutter from the photo. Then, you should start editing the photograph in a software such as Adobe Photoshop. Look for the Brush Strokes option and choose dark shading for the background. If there are some flaws in the photograph, then you can even fill them in with black. For the best results, try to remove all traces of dirt, dust, and other distracting elements from the photograph. If your photograph is already scanned and has the negative applied, then you can use the Scan Emulsion tool to get a nice look on your deep green background.
The last step is to place the photograph into the software. You can preview the photograph to ensure that everything looks well lined up before you begin printing. After that, you should print your photograph and use the Printer's Acrylic ink to line up the background properly. Before you set the final copy of your photograph onto the background, you should first erase all the background clutter from the background and then highlight the photograph. This will help you place your photograph onto the desired background without making any mistakes.
Your deep green background is now ready for use! You can go online and search for photographs that are suitable for the background. Many online sites offer free backdrop submissions as well as royalty free graphic submissions which will cost you a nominal fee. But you will definitely enjoy the look of your natural or custom backgrounds!
