Studio equipment is expensive and you don’t want to be stuck with just one or two backgrounds. If I could own only one background for portraits, it would have to be gray. With a minimal amount of effort, you can turn a gray backdrop into white, or black or pretty much any color you can imagine. You can use seamless paper backgrounds or vinyl backdrops, or even gray material or gray paint on a wall.
If you keep light off the background – it will turn black. If you add enough light to the gray background it will turn white. And if you add colored gels to your background strobes, you can make that gray background any color you want to.
