I used a Nikon D3 tethered to my laptop via Nikon's Camera Control Pro 2 software. I used my 4 speedlights to light the backdrop and a monolight with a big softbox for the subject. I then printed 4x6 prints with my HP B9180 printer.
The Photokey software worked great. The only time I ran into problems was when kids costumes contained green. Of course, that is to be expected but I didn't really have a work around and just had to explain to parents why their kids were disappearing . The kids all thought it was a hoot!
After it was all said and done, here's what I think. First, the HP is a WONDERFUL printer but too slow for event photography. I got backed up waiting for the prints to come out. Second, please get rid of the horizontal and vertical sliders in the position tab. Make it so I can just click and drag the foreground image. Third, please add some way to add a quick mask so that I can "draw" over parts of the image that I don't want keyed. That way, I could quickly correct for green in the kids costumes etc. And finally, I think I'll add another softbox next time for the subject.
Overall, I was happy and the parents where happy too. Here's a quick sample of my kids.
