Of course, you can't necessarily do that for monstrous creations, but it works for the scale I build at.
Well, I don't think it's impossible, but it does require some forethought. A large sheet of green muslin (a cloth with low sheen), can be had for a bit of cash on E-Bay or at a fabric store. I'm afraid, though, that green muslin can be a problem with Lego in Lime and Bright Green as I mentioned.
Green would work if it is this sort of luminous green, just dont try doing it with a forest shot
LOL. Yeah. Not only is Lego difficult from a color perspective, there's also the reflection of light on the plastic (which can be corrected to a point), and a brightly lit green screen could reflect its glow, bleeding on your scene/models if positioned nearby. We don't want that!
My initial point was to find a color that would pose the fewest issues: A 'universal' chroma color for Lego. Magenta, Orange, and Turquoise are colors I like using, and as Lego colors, that would disqualify them.
The key is to get the ones which are as luminous as possible and to have sufficient lighting so there is enough contrast to separate the bricks from the background. However the choice of background color would no doubt affect the picture outcome and would require some hue adjustment later.
I agree. The chroma color should have a cleanly character: Bright and saturant on its own, not requiring a great deal of lighting, creating the fewest issues in all regards.
At any rate I doubt (you) can reach the point which after you got the shot you could settle the chores with one click on magic wand tool. The shadow produced on lighting will inevitably mess things up a bit.
I think I can solve this issue. There's much talk about soft box screens and 3 point lighting (google it!). That would help with the model, but there would still be the issue of the screen color itself. Experts I've read about suggest that the screen needs to be evenly lit, which may or may not require an additional lighting setup, and this may be beyond the means or interest of most people photographing their Lego.
If you just have small models, a sheet of draped paper and two lights is sufficient.
Here's what I'm thinking might work. The best color is probably the one in the bottom right corner.
Anyway good luck and do let us know, not all of us has the resource to experiment with these
Thanks for your support. I will bring knowledge to the masses, and hopefully provide some economical solutions to all of these problems so that the art of Lego photography is advanced (maybe, lol).
