I bought 3 seemless backgrounds..white , blue and black. I have worked with the white and that is not a problem. But my choice of blue and black are giving my trouble. Black always looks good when shooting a model with nothing on. I tend to shoot alot more models with a sexy outfits on and not much nude stuff. So is black a bad choice for me ? And then there is the blue background. I guess if the model has on a white outfit it may work but I think I am very limited in what I can shoot with the blue. How has the colors worked for you guys ?

I have no idea what I was thinking that day.

I don't think blue is a bad choice, but you didn't say what color of blue. A medium blue would be good for various hair colors and lingerie colors.

I own seven seamless colors -- white, black, sky blue, orange, light purple, thunder grey and yellow. But 80% of my shooting on seamless is with white, black and blue. White is perfect for fashion shoots and if you keep your model lights off the background, you can turn the white seamless a rich warm grey. Blue is a great color for shooting swimsuits, especially if it's a sky blue. Blue is also great when you want to knock out the background and replace it with an actualy sky. Black is one of my favorite colors because it can either be used as a solid black background (great for one liught b&w images) ... or you can turn the black into almost any color you want by lighting it a strobe or two and using colored gels on your strobes.

Suffice to say ... you made three great choices.

Hi,

The Blue one is called studio Blue. It's kind of dark. I will just have to see what other people have done. I have not played with gels yet. Maybe it's time I did.

With the studio blue, consider putting a small low-powered light in the lower part to give it a graduated look...light on bottom to dark on top. Or a center spot behind the subject to separate them from the background. Experiment with the intensity of this background light and you will get lots of different looks. I often use a Gulf Blue which is a little darker and has a bit of purple in it I think. It works good with someone wearing red even. Put a red or blue gel on a light at full power and shoot it into the black for a different look. Remember to keep the subject and lights as far from the black as possible to keep it as black as possible. Rick from Arkansas "Arkie"
