Photo backdrops: Concrete wood or Print / Vinyl?

If you are also a professional photographer or a food blogger for sure you will be asked the same question: best photo backdrops in Wood or PVC (Vinyl) for your food and fashion photos? If you have a cooking blog or an Instagram profile you will have noticed that there are some screaming photos that make “WOW” exclaim at the first glance! These photos “draws like” always have 3 important elements that characterize a beautiful and effective photo:

  1. Atmosphere (lights and mood)
  2. Chromaticism (the color pattern)
  3. Set (backdrops and props)

To create the ideal mood, the perfect color pattern and effective set-up serves the right light, a balanced set of accessories and an important background. The latter is what mix everything and guides the photo towards the heart of the viewer.

Once its importance has been ascertained, it is right to ask what type of photo backdrops to buy, whether to opt for concrete wood ones or plastic backgrounds.

Because we photograph?

To answer, it is necessary first of all to ask yourself what purpose we take the photos. We do it to pass the time or why photographing we are passionate about? Because we have a smartphone to use or because we want to make more and more beautiful and professional photos (maybe to sell on the shutter like online photo archives as bigstock o shutterstock) or with which to conquer new followers and likes on social networks?

In the first case the background is not important, just the table of home or a shelf of luck. If, on the other hand, we want to make photography a profession and propose our professionalism to companies that increasingly use social networks to promote their products, then we need to think carefully.

Professional food or fashion photography of great quality requires equally good accessories and the background is one of the most important. If for sure are the dishes or products to promote the protagonists of the photo, it is the background that guides the palette the style, the narration, and above all the emotions to communicate.
