I see a lot of great studio fashion shots with what looks like a gray background. I know the background can be changed by using different amounts of light, but what is the most appropriate color to use. I am assuming the backgrounds are plain paper.

Thanks.

The gray colors can be used on just about anything, like white or black. if you were buying just one or two rolls of paper, then a light or medium gray would be a good choice to start with. I look at a lot of images and see it being used a lot. The grays and taupe (sp?) colors give an image a certain sophistication. That being said, other colors can added impact or enhance the mood of the image. it boils down to a matter of style and what is going to best compliment the subject.

Start with Savage seamless Thunder Grey (#27) paper, add or subtract light to get the tonality that you desire.
