Tips for design of background images
- Prefer quiet, low-distraction backgrounds
- Viewer is focused on the protagonist and content.
- Pay attention to e.g. inappropriate signs, plants behind the protagonist’s head, pictures, etc.
- Beware of windows and blinds as a background
- Exposure problem due to backlight
- Camera exposes the protagonist incorrectly as it cannot compensate the difference in brightness to the background
- Backgrounds always tell their own story. Great if they fit the message!
- Please be aware of using only images with image rights.
