How to Choose the Right Backdrop Color for Your Portrait

Photography Backdrops A good portrait really emphasizes the subject or subjects in the frame, so that their face, clothing and body stands out above everything else. In other words, nothing should distract from the subject of the portrait, making the photo backdrops chosen for the portrait more important than a novice photographer may think. Different colors of seamless paper or muslin will convey a different tone and mood to the portrait itself and also change based on the subject’s skin tone, hair color, clothing and eyes. With a keen understanding of how different photography backdrops affect a portrait, a photographer will have more options when it comes to changing the mood of each portrait they shoot. Below is a breakdown of all the different colors that can be used as seamless backdrops for portraits and what is conveyed through each one.

We grabbed our cameras and we took a Photoflex 5 in 1 MultiDisc 32” reflector and headed out to see what we could find. We love to shoot photos outside, but the glare is nonstop and sometimes it just causes more issues. You want to find a way to do lessen this and that is what we did when we discovered Photoflex and how this kit can work for you.

What Does a Photographer Do?

Written by Backdrop Express Photography Team on . Posted in Photographer Tips, Photography Tips

Photographers are people who present the world to the rest of the population. They are people who are self-employed and some travel to places to take pictures of things that are not seen every day. They are individuals who work hours that most people would find impossible to handle. These are organized people who must schedule their time effectively in order to make their business work.
