The background can be a very powerful influence in a portrait. Therefore, it should not be ignored as it usually is. There are basic fundamentals about a portrait that a photographer can promote. They can promote the fine quality of his work but every photographer everywhere thinks their work is great. But if the photographer can introduce highly complementary backgrounds, that can change the characteristic of the entire portrait in ways that are clearly perceived by the client. Backgrounds should complement the subject. Backgrounds enable the photographer to include more of the subject’s body in the pose and backgrounds also stimulate more creative posing and the use of special outfits. The photographer’s placement of the client within the background along with the lighting can make or breaks the portrait. Some photographers do not do this very well but they can learn.
With a VB system, you can now customize your portrait to each and every customer. There are many clients that do not want the same background each year they have their portrait made. They don’t want the same background in every pose. Multiple backgrounds create a variety of different looks that not only better satisfy the client but will also encourage them to buy more portraits. Unless you have unlimited funds to buy $1000 backgrounds you will not be able to give the variety that your clients come to expect. But you will still be extremely limited even if you spend tens of thousands of dollars on traditional backgrounds. With the Virtual Background System, the variety and flexibility are infinite plus each new background you add costs only a couple of dollars and takes up essentially no space. Plus the photographer can change backgrounds in seconds.
