This Week’s Lesson
In this lesson, we’re looking at how different photo backgrounds can shift brand and product perception and the type of audience that would purchase it.
P.S. You probably have lots of backdrops at home that you can already start playing with!
- The materials that make up the background can change the perception of the kind of lifestyle associated with the product, as photos evoke an emotional response. For example, if the photo background is soft, natural, and warm toned, the perceived ideal client who may gravitate to a product photographed on this background may want something that gives them the feeling of coziness, approachability, and down to earth. To contrast, a product photographed on a marble backdrop with harsh lighting will invoke a different feeling and target audience.
- Lifestyle images allow for the viewer to drop themselves into the scene — if the imagery invokes something inside of them that is aligned, their emotions are more connected to the product, since all purchases are emotional in nature.
