Black or white background?

I was wondering if photos with black backgrounds sell as much as white ones... Do buyers buy them? Do you shoot also isolated on black objects? I'd really like to hear your experiences on this.

As for the images you see here: they are two attempts of mine to produce images with a black background. I happen to particularly like the one with he birthday cake, don't ask me why :). The other one was totally improvised and I think you can tell that! :).

Isolated on whate sell much better, unles there is an obvious reason to isolate on black (like you are shooting something white), I would use white to isolate. They are the old standby. I have been leaning more towards situational images, so I have retired my white background for a while.


Thanks everybody or your comments :) I think I will stick to white and occasionally shot a few black background photos. As Howard said, it depends on what contrasts best. Happy shooting! :)


Obviously white,in my opinion.Just see those hot images,seems few black.


I choose depending on what contrasts best with the item being photographed. It would be interesting to see if one sells more than the other.


Pay close attention to! I would like to know too!


isolated objects with white background sell better...
