Anything, that can be used to enhance the look of yourphotograph along with filling the background space, can bereferred to as photography backdrops.The standard backdrops range from the solid colored muslinbackdrops in green, black, red, white, and many other colors tothe artistic ones featuring building, landscape, etc.Usually, they are the physical pieces that can be used in astudio or carried along for outdoor shoot.However, these days, photographers prefer to use digitalbackdrops.

  • 5. What can a backdrop do for you?Carefully chosen backdrops canreflect the personality and moodof the subject.A person standing in front of abackdrop of garden will depict apleasant mood, whereas a ladystanding in front of a blackbackdrop with shadows on facewill reflect an anger or stressfulmood.
  • 6. Out-of-the-box ones suchas the dyed backdropsimprove the presentationof the picture as well asmake your subject lookbeautiful.With proper lighting,they can highlight thedesired things such as thefacial expression, skincolor, hair color, thesketch of the subject, etc.
  • 7. How to choose the right backdrop?Color coordination between the foreground and thebackground is very important. Make sure that youchoose the right background color that will highlightthe subject without actually affecting their look.Never choose a background that will cause a lot ofdistractions and take the attention away from thesubject. The idea is not to highlight the backgroundbut to drag a lot of attention towards the subject.
  • 8. If your subject is standing too close to the backdrop orif the background has lines or blemishes, the viewerwill be less attracted towards the subject.If you are using artistic ones, be careful of the objectsin the background that seem to protrude from thesubject’s head such as a tree or a pole. These elementscause a lot of distractions and also make your picturelook humorous.Never choose a backdrop that is cluttered or else yourpicture will also look messy.
  • 9. The best way to get the most outof the backdrop is to evaluate itbefore taking the pictures. Mostphotographers tend to ignorethem and later, regret on the badresults.
