I'm currently experimenting on still life (and "still dead"). Having read books and foolin ard wif my camera, I've come to realise the importance of a gd background (they do take up alot of the picture space). So i'm wondering:
1) What colour of background shd i have (say light subject=dark backgrd)?
2) What kind of background wld compliment my subjects (rough background for rough textured subject?)
3) What kinds of material do people use for background normally? (white cloth? black construction paper?)
4)I also noticed that for white backgrd, they often mess up the lighting thru its own reflection of light.......anyway to reduce tt?
Comments greatly appreciated. Thnx
