I’m working out of KMIR’s Palm Desert studio while I wait for mine to be built. Tonight, our floor director/camera op Steve took a few shots while I was on-the-air.
In case you don’t know, TV weather is usually done using chroma key. I stand before a blank green wall. The maps are inserted digitally.
The taped box on the floor is where I would stand if I didn’t pace back-and-forth toward the camera. The fact I touch the wall has driven many engineers and directors a little crazy.
The only way to know where I’m pointing is through a few strategically placed monitors. There are no reference points on the green wall.
I never see myself like this. It does look weird.
