    Here's a few great ideas on how to use these custom creations:
    • Take your sports shoot inside and stop worrying about weather and changing sunlight - Simply photograph the empty field on a nice day and use the outdoor shot as your new background.  Your images will look like they were taken outside, but your shoot has the ease of being done inside!
    • Shooting a corporate event?  Tournament?  Charity event?  Class reunion?  Step and repeat the company, school or team's logo along with your own for a unique background that helps market your business long after the event is over.
    • Create a custom background to match the school's theme for your next prom or dance!
    • Can't find the exact design you're looking for?  Tired of having the same choices as everyone else? Create your own!  Use the textures, brushes, actions and more in your design software to create a one of a kind background that is exactly what you want!

      You may find this product in our Promotional Catalog under "Custom Backdrops."  As always, if you have any questions, CONTACT US!
