I am trying to blue screen and green screen jewelry. Which is getting more frustrating by the minute. Is jewelry a difficult object to blue screen or green screen?
We need to show the 'bling' or sparkle in the diamonds, etc...
I am trying to use the 'chroma key' filter in Boris as well as the 'composite choker' filter, but can't get the all of the background blue to drop out of the clip. It looks crappy and sloppy.
Now...does the color have to be blue or green specifically or can it be any dark color, as long as it is lit properly and consistant in the same color? I tried a color that isn't labeled as a blue screen color and it isn't working either.
If I use the green screen cloth or even the blue screen cloth, the lighting will reflect onto the jewelry and create a greenish tone on the jewelry. The same goes for the blue screen.
Are there any filters combos that would work with the 'chroma key' filter?

Generally, what is the best way to shoot jewelry for blue or green screening?

It is TOUGH to get a great chromakey effect out of a 411 (miniDV) camera. Composite choker will smooth out the edges to a fault if you choke down too hard. The camera's color space really controls how good the chromakey will be. So the question remains, What camera is used?
