Tha's it I am getting a mint green lining for my next MTO.
Personally I prefer the store background; that having been said there is very often an important difference between the pictures and the actual shoes and whereas the shop background portrays a warmer environment of course, I wonder if there might be a better background to portray the color more realistically unless of course the shoes are black ?
I mean I have never been disappointed but there is a huge difference between colors due to the type of computer screens of course but also due to the background I imagine?
I am sure that some members are into photography and can comment on that?
Yup, prefer store background.
The tan/mid brown colors of the display table compliment the warm colors of the blurred store background. It looks out of place with the neutral background IMO...
what a wonkey mto. needless to say, i like them very much!
I smell Alderley with mint green lining in the horizon.
Yes, yes indeed
^ you dont feel like the store background pics are overly saturated? the show
you dont feel like the store background pics are overly saturated? the shoes with the neutral background look better with less competing colors in the background
I got the email today from Skoak that the Shannon's I ordered in October came in.... now just have to wait for them to arrive!!
Anyone down for a G&G Hove in Oak (non-hatch grain)?
Aesthetically, I like the store background best. You are correct though, their pics do skew to a warmer overtone, and higher saturation. But, color accuracy is a whole other beast, and has many variables that are out of control of the person making the images.
The neutral background would be better for color accuracy, but only if they use something similar to the white box set-up (like Leffot). They would also need to use lighting that imitates natural light (like florescent bulbs), otherwise one needs to compensate for the tungsten yellowing in post-production. In the end, if the person's monitor (viewing the image) is not calibrated properly, it will still not be an accurate representation. Regardless of what Skoak does on their end.
That's why i am so adamant about seeing the leather or swatch in person, only way to really know. As far as shoe pics, i just ask for good clarity, contrast, and angle variety. Aesthetic flair is an extra bonus for me, which i appreciate...
Late to see this. I think the store background is the better choice.
Man you have some guts your know, I have been sweating over a "mint green lining" never mind a boot in those colors. Congratulation.
I am in the minority -- I like the neutral gray background.
Thanks Laufer, as I was going MTO route I figured why not go mint green...... you only live once... LOL.
Since you usually do multiple photos, I think a mix of neutral and store backgrounds would be helpful. And of course top-down view regardless of background.
