Is it grey? Is it charcoal? No! It's our pure black! You'd be amazed if you knew how flexible each backdrop is in terms of range of lightness depending on how the set is lit. Upon confirming your session, we send you a list of all background options available, and encourage you to be open minded and try out something other than the typical white or grey. Even with those backdrops, depending on how much we lighten or darken the midtones and highlights, we can create different shades of grey to suit or stand out against whatever outfit you happen to be wearing. Need a little help with what looks best for your purpose? Just ask and we would be happy to guide you in the right direction.
