Pipe Dream #160: To Fake Out Backdrops

I posted one of my dad’s headshots a few weeks ago in the hope that it would keep you coming back to my blog…
:] …and here you are.

Anyway, little known fact: he is actually standing in front of my garage door. I was feeling uninspired, and I figured this was a neutral enough background for a business-y shot. It’s not like I have a studio in my house I deal in natural light, people. But enough excuses.

How often do you do this with photos? Angle strategically to find the perfect background that doesn’t include an off-color or bad lighting or an unattractive advertisement (my particular pet peeve). I feel like I do it all the time, and I can’t decide if it makes me an inauthentic photographer. Oh, art.

If you can, indeed, call these art.

Authentically yours,
