white background

In nature photography, you have several options for registering your subject: you can either choose to isolate the subject from the background, you can show your subject in its natural habitat, you can make a portrait of your subject… One of the more extreme ways of isolating your subject from its background, is photographing it against an entirely white or black surface. I recently started doing this too and during my internet searches for improvement of this technique, I discovered the international project “Meet your neighbours“.

I combined my love for amphibians with this technique and below you see some of the resulting images. To me, isolating my subject from its background allows to put all attention on the animal, thereby showing some details that might otherwise easily be overlooked.
