There are three options I suggest you entertain before making your decision:
A. A sheet of fabric you can safety pin to drapes in a hotel – I do this more than you might imagine…

B. An easy to set-up (a minute or less) – quickly stored in a closet roll-up/retractable green screen.
Elgato Green Screen – Collapsible Chroma Key Backdrop
C. A huge – always ready2go stationary Green Screen that is ready always, and instantly lit the
same way every time – with virtually no adjustments – (my number one choice).
SLOW DOLPHIN Photo Video Studio 10 x12ft 100% Cotton Muslin Chromakey Green Screen Backdrop with 10 x 10ft
D. I do not suggest investing in any of the attach to your chair type green-screen fold-aways – as your lighting will NEVER
be consistent – as your body will shift frequently – altering your appearance from second to second potentially.
