Yet, they tend to overlook a very important aspect; thebackground. This is a vital part of any photographic set up and needs the proper attention. It canmake or break the composition, feel and dynamics of a photograph. Are you still not sure aboutthe importance in choosing the right background? In following article, I want to bring to yourattention two important factors that we tend to fail to notice when choosing a background. Thesecan apply for both outdoor and indoor photo shoots, though since most of my work is doneoutdoors, I will focus mainly on outdoor situations.Excessive Background NoiseFrom my experience, I have learned that the simpler a photograph is the better. By this I mean,when shooting a model you aim to have a background that compliments your model not competewith it. Let us consider a scenario in which you are to shoot a model in a cowboy costume. Tocomplement the model you decide to shoot the session on a farm. You are faced up with twochoices. In your first option, the model poses inside an old barn, with bails of straw and a couple oftools in the background. As a second choice, the model sits on a tractor with horses grazing in thebackdrop.You can realize that in the second instance there are too many things going on. The massivenessof the tractor and the moving horses are likely to overpower your model. On the contrary, insidethe barn the background is not stealing the viewers attention but rather it directs it towards themodel.Always keep in mind that your choice of background never overshadows your main subject; yourmodel.Conflicting MessagesHave you ever tried to convey a message through your photos but the results said otherwise? Oneevening I received a call from a friend telling me that he had some great pictures that wanted toshare with me. He said he had found this great shooting location.Upon seeing the photos I was terrified. The location looked more like a damping site than thecountry side he was trying to portrait. To be fair there was a beautiful pond surrounded by fantasticweeping willow trees, but the copious amount of damp scattered all over the area was a shame.Do you sincerely thing that a glamorous shoot can be done in such a location? Such a situation
    • could be termed as juxtaposition, meaning that the message conveyed would say that the modeland the whole set is purely rubbish.This kind of situation is observed in my magazines and newspapers, sometimes intentionally othertimes out of neglect or lack of knowledge. Keep your eyes wide open for these kinds ofcircumstances.ConclusionAs you can see, in choosing the right background there is more than just colours, shapes andshades. It is a complex scenario in which conflicting details and complementary elements all playa part in your final product.Do you want to acquire a handful of posing secrets so that you too can master the art of posingand directing a model? If yes, I invite you to follow my site at http://michaelabela.weebly.com inorder to manage to move from one style to another with ease like a pro.Author: Michael AbelaSource: http://michaelabela.weebly.com/Article Source:http://EzineArticles.com/?expert=Michael_Abela==== ====ALERT: Click this link to learn how you can submit photos online and earn up to $5000 week afterweek!
