Background Color Makes a Difference (Cookie Photograhy)

Who knew?
I started using different fabrics of assorted colors
to use as backdrops for 
my cookie photos.

It became very apparent one day
that the color REALLY matters.

I took photos of the same 
sets of cookies but used 
three different background colors.












So many lessons to learn, ya know?! 

Exciting news.....I got a new camera this last weekend.
I'm using it for cookie photos
for the first time today.
I'm very excited!!!

Happy Thursday.....

Let us know what kind of camera you got and more tricks you're learning to enhance the cookie artwork.  You're right, it can help to have people stop and appreciate the art or have them skip over the photo to other interesting topics on hand.  Happy Easter!

I just got a light box for taking pictures and it came with different backgrounds, I never know which color plate or background looks best.. Still learning what to do, Maybe we can discuss this at Spring Fling.. Tips for taking good pictures...

Just like with scrapbooking,  background colors make a difference!  Your cookies are beautiful as always. 
Happy Easter.

Yay!!! I love that you are playing with your NEW CAMERA!!! Background DOES make a difference... personally I love when you use white, but in these examples, some colors look fabulous with the blue background...

Can't wait to learn from  your photography discoveries, and all that Neil will teach you!

I find the background color is important for serving platters as well.  Pale cookies can look most appealing on a bold dark color like a cobalt blue plate.
