The best midtones are those grays that sit right in the middle of the grayscale. I often opt for a cream, soft pink, gray, or aqua-colored background for still life work. 42 Art Beyond the Lens From plain to textured When photographing still life setups, finding great backgrounds can be hard work.

Published by Elsevier, Inc. All rights reserved. 28 Art Beyond the Lens Throughout this chapter, I’ll explain and offer valuable insight as to the advantages “shooting with textures in mind” can provide. You’ll learn why obtaining the right image capture is essential. Negative space and the right composition Negative space is the term that photographers use to describe an area of composition that isn’t occupied by anything specific. It’s a void or a space with no real defining quality; it’s the counterbalance for the subject, the space left over.

I prefer to work with cooler daylight than bright sunshine. When working indoors, I’ll set up by a full-length window and position my subject either directly to the side or at 45 degrees to my light source. When shooting on ­location, I’ll avoid shadows and strong contrasts, ­opting to set up somewhere with a little shade. If that’s not ­possible, I’ll create my own with my reflector or a ­defusing canopy. The reason I aim to shoot with a lower contrast is twofold. First, I can be sure to ­capture the finer delicate details (­especially when working with floral setups), and second, when it comes to ­processing I have the flexibility to ­introduce additional contrast from my textures without overdoing it.
