Make your own green-screen photo booth with a Raspberry Pi

Albert Hickey recently went to a Raspberry Jam and took along with him his latest project: a green-screen photo booth. The booth, which runs on a Raspberry Pi 3, uses Imagemagick to remove the colour green (provided by a green backdrop purchased from eBay) from an image taken using a camera module and then layering another image behind what’s left. The whole thing is carried out using a Python script. Albert got mixed results, due to shadows and lighting, but the overall effect is great. The code is available on GitHub and you can read about how to do it yourself over on Albert’s blog.
