Tips For Controlling Your Video Backgrounds

Good backgrounds help to make great videos. For example, if you have an interview to shoot, wouldn't it be more interesting to set the background against a large window overseeing the city, instead of a plain wall?

Or, if you're interviewing an athlete, it'd be more interesting to interview him or her in the sports arena itself, where the audience can see what's going on with the other sportsmen or women.

Here are some tips for controlling your video backgrounds so as to enhance your overall video production quality:

1. Compose Videos

The first tip about video backgrounds is to compose your videos properly. For this, you can hire professionals to create effective videos. You should always try to apply the "Rule of Thirds", dividing your video scene into nine squares and making sure the points of focus are at the intersection points of the squares. In the case of games creation, it is also important to analyze the game backgrounds and loading screens

2. Dealing With Wasted Space

The second point about controlling video backgrounds is to avoid wasted space in your video. I'll give you an example. Now, many people like to be in a video shot with a large sign or a background object.

3. Adjust Brightness

Another thing I like to do to control my video background is to play with the brightness in the scene. One of the more common ways to adjust brightness is to get a reflector or bounce card to give similar exposure to your subject and the background.
