Part of a beauty photographer’s job is to flatter skin, especially when working with skincare or makeup brands. Backdrop selection and lighting technique are two major elements of a compelling beauty photograph. Complementing your model’s skin tone with a background shade that enhances without distracting from her/his features is a great way to strengthen a natural beauty concept. Starting by selecting the right Savage seamless paper backdrop, and then adjusting the tonality as necessary through your lighting setup and post production processes, you can achieve a smooth, flattering background to complement your beauty model’s skin tone.
