Easy Photo Tips – Inexpensive Backgrounds

Classic Comicbook Donatello
Photo-A-Day #4359

My friend Linsey asked me how I was getting a certain effect to my photos recently. She wanted to know what I was using and the answer was super simple. I bought two pieces of posterboard that had a two tone color to them. One is blue to yellow and the other is yellow to pink. I’ve been using them for a while now and I am noticing that my photos are looking very much the same. They are better for filming and for showcasing the toys. I’ll be picking up some more posterboard soon in different colors to match the different toys better.

So the technique is placing the posterboard down at a curve so that there are no angles. Then the light makes the poster a bit shiny at the curve. I’m going to figure out better ways to use these and the lights that I use for filming my videos. As I learn more I will make more videos like the one below.

Disneynature’s BORN IN CHINA – Panda Facts


While I missed posting this on National Panda Day I did get some fun information to share with you about the upcoming Disneynature film, BORN IN CHINA which is opening in theatres everywhere next month. I have enjoyed many of the Disneynature films of the past. A few years ago I was lucky enough to be part of a press tour where I got to see Monkey Kingdom and promote that. I enjoyed that one very much and Tina Fey was an excellent narrator. I am looking forward to see how John Krasinski does as the narrator. I’ve always enjoyed his voice on things. Below I have clips and a whole video on Panda facts. After that even more great info on the upcoming movie.
