The extensive range of colours offered by Creativity Backgrounds offers me a dynamic palette with which to work with.  I use the vibrant and powerful tones to provide an edge when creating commercial portraiture and also as a great tool when teaching lighting technique. From individuals to groups of friends and even family sessions, adding that magical colour into the background can be a great reflection on the subjects own personalities.
