Alternative Black and White Photography Backgrounds

Join Daniel Norton OnSet as he shows you great alternatives to create black and white backgrounds for your photography. Using Duvetyne, a flame-resistant black fabric often used to block bright light (the same material flags are made from), Daniel shows you how to create a stark black background that will stay black even when directly lit by your key light.

 For a beautiful clean white background, Daniel used Savage Translum, a translucent heavy-duty plastic-like background that can be lit from behind to create not just a clean white background, but a glow that surrounds your subject. Paper backdrops in black and white do a great job, but to level up your portrait and other work Duvetyne and Translum may be the best backgrounds.
