So I recently bought a green screen. I was a pro photog with a studio and everything for years and never owned one. Anyway, I wanted to add scenes to my dollhouse background. This thing is ginormous. So I thought I'd post the pullbacks here. It's the kind that folds up into a circle, but I'm sure I'll just leave it up. I may need to turn my table to avoid the window reflections on the other side of my room on the top windows and shoot again. But I love this. Free photos from unsplash.com + a little Photoshop to blur it a tad and add a gradient for some depth.

I added one of those color changing letterboards to my kit. With no letters in it, its just a softbox that I can change the color on! It works great for interior shots when I want warm sunrise or cool night lighting. You might check that out!

Oh what a wonderful tip. I had wondered how people were doing these kinds of effects. Thank you for sharing.

@shaunee2323  I do know some people print stock images on architecture prints at Office Depot. But I'm too picky and wanna try different ones! HAHA

I love your background photo. I need to get myself one of those. Where did you get it?
