When I moved Fotofilia to the current premises within BOM (Birmingham Open Media), one of the items I was determined not to leave behind was a large piece of flooring vinyl. Not (just) because I’m a bit of a tightwad, but because this piece of aluminium chequerplate-effect vinyl had proven its worth as a very versatile background at the old premises and I really didn’t want to be without it.
As an example of its versatility, here are examples of two very different shoots using the same background taken within a week of each other..
In the unlikely event that you can’t tell the difference, the images on the left feature the gorgeous Kate-Anne Cooper (taken at a Fotofilia “Special Studio Evening”) and the ones on the right are boxers from Fighting Fit City Gym who came in for some promo shots for their forthcoming boxing show at Gatecrasher in Birmingham.
There’ll probably come a time when I get bored of this background. Maybe.
