The Classic Beauty Shot

25 03 2009

Classic Beauty ShotHigh key backgrounds such as this one used with Raven is pretty simple to achieve, but the main thing to notice is the white background doesn’t compete with the subject.  Used pretty often, especially in catalogs, the desired effect was to show her complexion, makeup, and to set the tone of the shot with her expression without the background interfering with the subject.  The paper would be white (in most cases) of a catalog, and the white background doesn’t require extra ink to print.  Plus, the model will “pop” off the page.
