Photography 101- Background

Today,I will demonstrate the importance of using a proper background.
In this picture,the background is black. So am I. This clearly does not work!



Using your flash is not much better.
It only gives you laser eyes!!!!



Using a much lighter background is the way to go.
Using a flash is not the way to go!



Proper background and no flash = perfection!!!!!

Mickey you are so right. Flash takes away the original colors from the picture, and disturbs the subjects! Thanks for this great lesson!

We love the no flash rule, but sometimes it goes off anyway because this time of year it seems it's dark all the time! Mom has a hard time taking good pictures of me because of my dark fur, but your lessons will help her a lot. Thanks!

Maikku said...

I agree on the flash I think everyone uses too much flash. It can make crazy cat eyes and can overexpose the white in ones cat. Lol! Sometimes Taos paws are like halos.

Kelly Cat said...

Yep, it's a challenge taking photos of a black cat -- but the results are worth it!
