Details from Westcott

    So how does it work?
    It's simple. We have created a complete kit including everything you need (minus the camera and computer) to superimpose an image onto any backdrop. Travel to Paris, place a baby on the flower pedal or step foot on the moon without having to go anywhere.

    Go green.
    Chroma–key green that is. The magic behind this whole process is the green screen. Included in this kit is a 9' x 10' extra–large green screen backdrop that is constructed from a heavy–duty wrinkle–resistant matte fabric. You simply hang this background onto any wall or background system using the included pole pocket and grommets. Once hung, place your subject at least 3' in front of the backdrop and take your photo. (Make sure you frame only your subject and the green screen.) Why 3' This helps to avoid any shadows on your backdrop that would need to be taken out during post production.

    The next step.
    The next step is correctly lighting your backdrop and your subject. The uLite was designed to do just that. Although the uLites are designed to be compact in nature, they project an extremely broad area of light coverage. Basically, you can light a larger area with a smaller box. This is achieved by placing the removable diffusion front flush with the outer edge of the softbox and the narrow depth of the softbox. This simple 2–light setup will properly light both your subject and the 9' x 10' included backdrop.

    Simple set up.
    The uLite is one of the first collapsible softboxes designed to give you the amazing light quality of a traditional style softbox, without the tedious set up. With one simple push, your softbox takes form and locks into place.

    Powerful tungsten halogen lamps.
    The included two 500–watt lamps offer plenty of power to make sure both your subject and green screen are properly lit. Lamps are rated for over 60 hours of use.

    PhotoKey 5 Lite Software
    PhotoKey 5 Lite instantly removes green screen from your photos and replaces it with a new background image with only a handful of clicks. Shooting on green screen has never been easier! Green screen photography lets you experiment with different backgrounds without needing lots of practical backings or expensive locations.

    Digital backdrops.
    As an added bonus, we have also included 200 digital backdrops and 2o overlay graphics to get you started right away!
