Introduction: Cool Photography Background
In this Instructable, which is my first, I will show you a cool way of making a background for photography.
Step 1: What You Need
*A stack of around 20 or more cds' that you don't need anymore. (Yeah, I know. I have a lot.)
*A blue or black dropsheet, blanket, or bedsheet.
*White tape. (Has to be sticky enough to grip onto fabric.)
*Tacs. (To hold up the dropsheet)
Step 2: Dropsheet
First, you need to hang the dropsheet up on a cleared wall, using the tacs.
Step 3: Tape
Fold the tape onto itself, so both sides are sticky. Then place 2 pieces on the non-mirrored side of the cd, at the top and bottom.
Step 4: Hanging the CDs
Now, hang all the CDs up, however many you have, and make different shapes, like I show in the next step. (Notice how on the second picture on this step, my hand is sorta ultracolored? I took this picture with the camera set to "Manual", with the flash set to "Night Flash".)
Step 5: Designing CD Patterns
Here's the basic design I did. Turns out really nice. Try different angles, and adding someone in front of the CDs.
*Tips: The more lighting, the better. I used two very powerful lights. Or even turning all the lights out, and putting the flash up.
(I hope that this Instructable, seeing as it is my first, was very clear. Feel free to ask any questions.)
