    What is the best background to take pictures of your own basses?

    I've seen wood floors, forests, pools, front yards, couches, beds, white sheets and more.

    What are the best backgrounds for picture taking?

    In reality I’d say a white or off white background. They are neutral in colour and will give a more even lighting. Just make sure you don’t use a flash straight on.

    x1000! Can't believe how many Craigslist pictures I see that are just gross.

    I have seen some really nice pictures taken on wood floors or hanging on a raw wood wall.

    It puts me off to see awful examples of feet, toes, socks and shoes poking into the bottom of the photo.

    When I bought my Rumblekat, it came with a hard case. Sadly the stand was not included. Still, I think the background here is pretty good.

  16. If you are concerned with the best background to take pictures of your basses with, then you are not spending enough time playing them. They are there to be played not ogled.
