I need help! My customer requires a talking head against a solid white background (255,255,255). I've tried green screen and shooting against a well lit white background, but nothing has provided satisfactory results.
I use a Digital Juice Luma Pop and two Soft Boxes and it looks great but I see that it's been discontinued. It's white on one side and black on the other and really looks nice when lit with soft boxes. Try and find something similar.

As JR mentioned, I have always found it easier and cleaner to place a white background around someone if they are shot over a white background. If it needs to be completely 255 white, you can usually do a combination of luminance key and masking to get a good clean background.
If they want the background to be 255,255,255 because they want it to blend seamlessly into a web page or something, then you need to use chroma key and key out the background and add a fake one. It's the only way to get the background that solid.
