Extra Credit: White Background
The “negative” background does not have to be blank, it can be blurry, or a contrasting color – as long as it “reads” as background, it works. But for extra credit, make that background completely white and distraction-free. This is a great opportunity to play with a light box, or silhouettes, or studio lighting.
Remember, it is not necessary to work in this Extra Credit piece. It’s extra credit!
