Complimentary Backgrounds



Sometimes choosing a background that blends with your subject's clothing is complimentary--meaning flattering not opposite. It draws the focus to the face and less to the outfit.

Challenge: This week, find a background that is similar in color to the clothing worn. For example, use treebark as your backdrop if your subject is wearing brown or rusty metal if your subject is wearing orange and a dark leather jacket.
