Interesting background materials

In a thread at Shutterstock’s forum people show their photos and tell which material they have used for the background. It’s very interesting to see and I have gained a lot of good tips. One of the best tips was to use a photo as a background. I must try and print out a photo I took of the sky this last summer and use as a background for one of my photos.
