    Default Christmas portraits ... backdrop colors? - added missing setup

    I'm doing Christmas portraits for a friend on Wednesday. I'm mentally reviewing the fabrics I have ... and I really wish I had a white that I could pull over but I think I'd be unhappy if I even attempted with any of my whites.

    That being said, how do you think this set up would look? The girls are wearing dresses - one red, one black/red/white.

    I have some great crushed panne (velour look) fabrics that I obviously can't use the floor for.


    here are some of my other options ...

    1. gray suedecloth

    2. red panne (not great with red dresses, but wondering about the overall look for holidays)

    3. brown panne (but no one will sit that close to it )

    4. gold panne

    5. white panne (this is what I used for my kids' holiday portraits last year)

    I have a navy blue panne which doesn't scream "holidays!" and a black velvet which I know I will use for some. I also have a bright pink panne that I bought for fun portraits for my girls, but I've never used it. I have a really nice soft yellow fabric that I bought to use with the fake floor, but it's still in the bag ... I hope to sew the seam to hang it on my stand tomorrow and see how that looks. But yellow doesn't scream "holiday" to me either.

    Anyhow, would love any and all thoughts on holiday backgrounds. It's all inside portraits this go around.

    I am loving the red, although it might be swayed because that's such an adorable picture of Jack!

    I like the red too, but it will really depend on the colors in their clothes. Im also a fan of the gold! I cant wait to see them!

    totally forgot to add the first setup, the one I was initially posting about before I went on my flickr hunt for more backdrop pictures.

    I'm partial to green. Especially since the girls will be wearing red and black. I think it'll give a nice contrast Can't wait to see them!

    Definitely using the green ... and I just got some shots with the yellow (more of a cream). I have to take an iron to it though as the dryer didn't get out the main crease.

    But I just shattered my plexiglass when changing my backdrops (one side of my stand fell right on the plexiglass). That totally just ruined my plans of using the black with the reflective surface. I'm not happy.
