Photography back drop(s) are something I haven’t liked using much. They always seem to make the photos less real in a way that actually looks less real.
A little while ago, I wanted to learn how to shoot models and spoke to a friend about how to shoot them, we went to a local pub to save having to use a photography back drop. In the pub, there were lots of bottles, barrels and other such things. The lighting for the photography was very poor because of the dark timber used on the walls and also the owners of the pub insisted on smoking.
Anyway, from this little adventure, I’ve learned a few things. Firstly don’t shoot where you cannot control the environment (including the air !) and photography back drops in a studio probably aren’t that bad after all.
Heres some photos from the shoot in case anyone is interested.
