Default ChromaKey: First attempts! Amazingly easy. Image heavy!

Bought a chromakey over the weekend, it arrived this morning so had a quick play. Took 2 shots of my wife, this was one with ETTL flash on camera bounced off the wall.

Images were loaded into the free picture editing program Paint.net with a chromakey plugin added. Using the plugin took seconds and the results are very surprising. I would expect to get even better results with a bit of practise and better lighting on the background!

This chromakey gave a little more modelling but required a better selection of a background which had similar lighting.

I would expect to get even better results with more seperation from the background and a more even light on the background. But just to show, this was the chromakey, pasted directly onto a white canvas!
