We added a new backdrop at the studio this week and here are some test portraits. The backdrop is very subtle here as we are using a shallow depth of field but even when the pattern shows through it looks good. It’s a nice alternative to plain backgrounds that I still love to use. Don’t forget we are currently offering mini shoots at the studio. A girl dressed in a dark or light plain colored dress or a boy in jeans and a black or white shirt would make for some classic style portraits using this set up. Does classic make you think of formal photography? I certainly like to create a more serene feel to some of my images but it can be about fun too. What got the laugh here? I tripped over my stool!
