How do I light my green screen?

Your green screen needs to appear as one solid color.  This requires a wrinkle free green screen with light evenly distributed across the surface.  It is best to light the green screen from behind the talent, so no shadow is cast on the screen.  You can place two lights on the floor, or use stands for your lights and place them on the sides of the green screen.  Depending on the lighting of your location, you may need to shine a soft light directly on the talent from behind your tripod.  Green screens tend to work well in natural sun light, not requiring additional lighting.
