Pay attention to your backgrounds

Pay attention to your backgrounds.

At our Old Car City Workshop on Saturday we had a few models out for our portrait session. A lot of folks don’t know that I actually started in the business as a portrait photographer. I still do portraits whenever I can. We had Lou Raimondi helping to direct the scenes and diffuse the light with the Interfit 5 in 1 reflectors. I was explaining to the group to watch your backgrounds. What should be a nice portrait of the model on the car quickly becomes an ad for Chain Saws…
