I recently was able to get my hands on the Blue Mist paper from Savage Universal, and it has quickly become one of my absolute favorite seamless colors for portraits, particularly in the beauty realm. Its light tone allows for an incredible amount of flexibility when shooting. By lighting the background independently from your subject, you’re able to get incredibly tonal range from the light, ranging from a baby blue off white, all the way down to a deep turquoise color when underexposed. With this broad of a range, the Blue Mist paper has become permanently attached to my three roll seamless mount system.

When it comes to colored rolls, I’m always a little apprehensive about purchasing bright colors, opting for more neutral colors for their ability to be used in an extensive amount of scenarios. More often than not, I find that the bolder colors will sometimes be a bit too strong, and take the focus away from the subject. But using a lighter toned seamless, like Blue Mist, I’m able to get soft colors that help direct the focus to the subject, but then also get bolder tones when I separate them from the background, underexposing the seamless by a couple of stops of light.
