Dear Constant Reader,
It’s Friday! Don’t forget that Betty Blaize is teaching a false eyelash class tomorrow! Here’s your tip!
If you need a backdrop for filming, some fabric (like a bedsheet or tablecloth) and some temporary stick-on clips can quickly and easily transform a wall.
I just did a photoshoot in my living room using this tip!
What the camera saw…
What it really looks like…
I covered the pale blue walls with dark red curtains that are held up with Command clips, which won’t hurt the paint. The clips are spaced so that I could pleat the fabric a bit and add texture. I only had three curtains, and I really needed four, so the fabric closest to the candelabrum is actually one of my tablecloths. Lucky for me it was a close color match. And it also hides a curio cabinet that’s attached to the wall.
Get creative and let the camera see only what you want it to!
