Recently I emailed out to a few people in the industry to find out their thoughts on using colored backdrops for actor headshots.
Before you book your next headshot session, give this a read-through so you know what photographer to hire and how to properly prepare for your headshot session.
As a general rule of thumb, we at City Headshots have always opted for either white, gray, or natural outdoor, blurred backdrops for actors. Occasionally we'll offer a flat colored backdrop, but only if it's a pale, subtle color that doesn't distract too much from the eyes and expression of the actor in the picture.
Take a look at some quotes, and then at the bottom of the article I'll add my own two cents, summing up what everyone has to say:
