Below, we look at the same lighting conditions with the only difference being the value of the background.
There is a difference in CONTRAST using a dark or light background. The photos with the black background have a greater difference between the lightest and darkest areas. This is apparent in the following photos. The second row contains enlarged sections. (Note there is a bit of difference in the 'sharpness' of the blownup photos.... there was a bit of recorded camera shake using the black background, as was explained in a previous lesson.)
This could be an area for further study......
It would be fun to have others submit lessons to be added here! If there are conflicting opinions, or results----all the better! Anyone up to the challenge?
