White Backgrounds For Commercial Photography

Of all places, we’ve found this brief yet interesting article on how to meter for seamless white backgrounds on the recycling blog Beautiful Rubbish. If any subjects are wearing or holding anything white, this is a great place to pick up a few tips on how to do it right, particularly before your wardrobe stylist winds up weeping.

In five simple-to-follow paragraphs, this article explains how to avoid panic when facing a big white cyc. Just a sample of this on-the-money article:

A good photographer should be able to picture any color of clothing with any background or light conditions. If you book a photo shoot and your photographer tells you not to wear white because it is hard to snap I recommend you look for a new cameraman. All that statement shows is a dearth of knowledge about photography lighting.

Bravo, Beautiful Rubbish!
