A photograph, framed by a backdrop, is a work of art in and of itself.
But what about when you need to showcase that work of artwork?
For that, you need a backdrop.
A backdrop stands in a photo and gives it the visual dimension that it needs to make it stand out from the background.
For example, if you have a background photo of a cityscape, a backdrop could include a street sign, a car, or a tree.
It’s important to think about where your background photo ends up in the image.
If you use a photo of an old building or a small town, a good backdrop is one that captures the spirit of that area.
However, if your background is a building with large windows, a simple backdrop can work well.
For instance, if a photograph of a house or a town house has a window with a balcony, then a backdrop can add depth and texture to the image to make the image look more alive.
For a good example of a good, simple backdrop, see this post by the photographer who did a good job of capturing the spirit and spirit of his hometown, San Francisco.
