Chances are you’re already familiar with Zoom — and at least heard about its virtual background feature. The video conferencing platform allows users to upload a customized background for when you want to shake things up, or if you just don’t want co-workers peeping while you work from home

If you miss the Boston skyline along the waterfront, the glow of the Citgo sign at night, or the Make Way for Ducklings statues in the Public Garden, you can bring the city to your next virtual meeting.

Ahead, we share ten backgrounds from photographers who have been featured on Boston.com’s Instagram that you can download for free.
