Fashion photography has become extremely popular in this digital era. So, if wish to get yourself involved in this business, now is the time to do so. For a beginner, the first thing to know is what you need to prepare for fashion photography. In this article, I will talk about backdrops that needed for studio photography.
Fashion photos can be taken outdoors or indoors. For indoor studio fashion photography or when you can't find the perfect urban location to shoot at, the backdrop is an indispensable prop. The choice of backdrop is usually arranged according to the color of the fashion. The most used and easiest to match is the solid color backdrop.
Among all the colors, the four colors of gold, silver, black and white are called "universal colors", also known as "wild colors". These four colors can be matched with any other colors to get the best visual effect, and can better bring out the emotion and symbolic meaning expressed by other colors, but it should be noted that gold and silver should not be used at the same time, otherwise the effect will be unsatisfactory.
It is common to choose black or white backdrop for fashion photography, because the colors of black and white are monotonous and pure. When a model is wearing a fashion dress and standing in front of the background cloth, black or white can set off and render any color of clothing on the model and enhance the color of the clothing, perform, attract and infect the audience.
If the model's clothes color is black or darker, then white backdrop can produce a strong contrast between light and dark, but highlight the details of the model's fashion.
If the model's clothes color is lighter and brighter, then the white backdrop will make the model look fresh, active and radiant.
A black backdrop is perfect when the model's clothes color is white or other light color tones, then the black backdrop can set off the bright image of the model very well, and the visual performance of the fashion will be more eye-catching, which strongly highlights the subject.
Of course, the choice of fashion photography backdrop also depends on the style of model’s clothes. For example, in retro style, stylish Wood and Brick printed backdrops can make your grunge fashion portraits stand out. If you plan to take a series of fashion photos with beautiful dresses, Bokeh Backdrops and Sequin Fabric Backdrops will be helpful. They can create glittering scene, so the models are like super stars.
A fashion shoot requires a model, makeup artists, assistants and technical experts. As long as you do not have a very good work environment, you will never be able to give your best. Start your fashion photography career from selecting a prefect backdrop.
