We used these for Easter and had the children freeze in their poses and we took digital pictures . The light shining on the kid's was not a problem, the darker coloured overheads showed up the best in the digital pictures we took. Darker clothing (costumes) worked best as you did not see overhead on the children (white costumes will show overhead picture). The light shining on the children from the overhead made taking the digital pictures easier. The kids thoroughly enjoyed posing in front of the backdrops. Their shadows showed up on the backdrop, just like the sun shining on them. Big Action Bible Skits" for both Old and New Testaments mentioned above have been discontinued so check you local Christian bookstore and buy them before they are gone, they are well worth it.
