I'm always looking for ways to improve the quality of my photographs and recently purchased some acrylic stands as backgrounds, one in black and the other in white. I really like the white background as the colors really pop and works beautifully in our lightbox so there are no shadows.
The black stand, however, is a whole different situation. I have to adjust the compensation settings on my camera which is not a problem, however I found the black is like a magnet for any lint or dust and shows the slightest fingerprint or smudge.
The other problem I am having with the black background is the reflection. While a subtle or soft reflection can be quite nice, this is anything else but. You can see in the photograph the inside "ceiling" of the lightbox. I will have to figure out how to work around this problem. Any suggestions?????
