I will start a production soon where we have a lot of exterior shots combined with green screen.
Yet I feel comfortable in a studio location and green screen I haven't had to deal with it in a day exterior setup
So if you have good advice or a general approach I'd be very interested in that.

For day exterior, just be sure you know in advance where the sun is going to go. Hang the green where it'll get good direct sunlight and no shadows for the duration. Talk to the effects people, better yet, get one of them to be there for the shoot. Knowing what they can and can't do with garbage mattes can save you time. Night exterior is more like being inside, you have more control.
