Getting the perfect white background Isolation in SECONDS

Fiery Guitar

I've always found it very time consuming to get the perfect white background isolation even when I shot the object with a white background. But I've found a great instructional video online that will go over two simple steps to get the "perfect" white background as well as a method to check if your background is pure white. If you have been having troubles with this, the video is a MUST SEE. It is so easy and quick, I want to actually check my current photos and possibly resubmit them. Definitely I will try to take some more white background isolation photos with this technique.

I hope this will be useful to everyone.

Zqfotography. Some parts of the photo might be over exposed. But mainly the whiter areas. You can mask out those areas in photoshop using a layer mask if you what to not overexpose your subject.

No problem. I'm glad it's helpful. I've seen many methods but this is definitely the most simple I've seen. And the video helps... no reading, hehe ;) Hey Brad. I haven't thought of that but your definitely right with the black background idea. Thanks.
