Black Foam Core Projects
« on: April 16, 2017, 03:42:03 PM »
One of my favorite tabletop photography projects involves the use of black foam core board. Subjects such as flowers and my seashell collection look especially nice against the black background. These types of projects celebrate the interplay of light & shadow and make for enjoyable "rainy day" photo sessions.

3. additional use of mirror, of course!

I hope you'll enjoy this set. The first image is "illuminated' meaning the light source is coming from underneath the shell.

Good Work. its certainly attractive and impressive.

I have several pieces of black foam core, but found it more difficult to use than black velvet. 

My use however, was as a background that was easy to remove from a photo of a product.  I have several different colors I can use, I try to pick one that is not in the product, but black or white seem to usually work best.

Thanks very much. The black velvet sounds like a great background to work with. I've also used various colored backgrounds, many of which I've purchased at art supply stores. The seashells in particular really seem to "pop" against the black background!

I like the black background as well...how does it look hanging in your living room?
