Blanket: Make Your Background Better

Last night we shot an interview in my basement for a documentary. Unfortunately, the room we were in has boring white walls with a pipe in the middle. Not a very compelling background for the subject.

We placed a dragon statue in front of the lights and added a textured, colored background:

Keep your mind open to the simple things around you that can dramatically improve a shot or overcome some technical challenge.
