Photographers often spend a great deal of time with hair, makeup, wardrobe, and props but very little time choosing the right background for the photos. Aris Affairs Photography believes that background can make or break the photos, and Prescott has a wide array of backgrounds to choose from. Let Aris Affairs Photography help you learn the importance of the background for your summer photos in Prescott.
This article is going to focus mainly on outdoor photos, but you can apply the same rules to indoor photoshoots. And, let’s face it, Prescott has some of the best outdoor backgrounds one could choose from.
Too much! Sometimes less is more….
In many cases, less is more. This is so very true with photo backgrounds. You never want your background to draw more attention than the person/subject of the photo. The background needs to make the subject stand out even more. For example, if you want your background to be downtown Prescott, make sure not to pick a busy background. Maybe an old brick wall with an iron railing will be just enough.
The background needs to speak the same language…
Make sure the background conveys the exact message you are looking to portray. Sometimes the background can have a completely different message. Just be aware of this trap.
We point this out so that, when choosing a background, you can be aware that there can be moving parts and conflicting messages in your background. Choose your background wisely. If you need help coming up with just the right background for your Prescott photoshoot, trust your summer photos to an experienced, professional photographer.
