Please follow the step by step from part 1 through 7 from top to bottom for each post. There are 20 clips in all. The demonstrations are done on 8.5x11 for convenience. Any questions...just comment or email me.

Here are some thoughts about the process. Anyone can do it. Takes a little practice.

Thanks to Lynn who inspired me to do this video sequence. Any additional techniques that need more shots I will do my best to accommodate. When you put your scenery in front of these backdrops it extends the layout room but does not draw your eyes away from your models.
