Hey all,

I was wanting to get some input on backdrop colors that you would recommend. I allready have a black and white drop. Is there any colors that work better than others? Is the chromakey a good addition? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

KJ

Black and white is all I use. White can be made into any color you want by putting the appropriate gels over the background lights.
As far as chromakey, I just use the white for that. Be sure to light it evenly and put the model far enough forward to avoid spill from the background onto the subject. You can then do near perfect knockouts of the subject from the background. Here is an example (click for full size example):

Savage makes a 'sky blue' which can be nice. Gelling your background can work also but you need to make sure no white light from your foreground bleeds onto the background, otherwise the color gets washed out.
