  • free studio background

    Here is a studio background that you can freely use. I painted it myself and although I had to make it a super compressed jpg it still looks fine.

    Thanks, Gooch

    It looks great. If you (or anyone) would like to make a higher-rez version of a background available, check out our Archives for submission details.

      Thanks for your generous contribution Phil. Those types of backgrounds are great to use but I can never seem to get that soft cloudy look to mine.

        It is very nice
        I sure will use this. I have some pictures I just took of my family with a busy background and this will be perfect. Will be great practice for me to select/ paste (I sure need practice on this one!)....Thanks for sharing this!

            There have been alot of requests from members to create those types of backgrounds. Maybe you could do a tutorial on creating them.

              I have sent a larger version to the archive along with an outdoor fall setting that I use both outdoors or as a digital drop in.
              Both images are out of camera at 22"x33" and can be re-res'd and size to your needs.

              As far as how to make the studio background.. I make all my backgrounds with a air-compressor sprayer with a piece of muslin laid out on my grass. The key is to spray first the bas then starting in the middle start spraying differnt spots.. keep the sprayer about 2 feet from the background. Use about 4-6 different colors and just let them blend together. The studio background was done with the following steps.

              Sprayed the blue/grey back base..
              sprayed lipstik pink in spots, white, lime and powder blue.
              Then I went over the edges with the background paints again.

                  I thought you created it in Photoshop. Guess I will have to turn on my compressor if I want to get that cloudy results you got.
                  Thanks for adding the hi-res and the other background. They sure are useful in this type work.

                      John,

                      Gotta give Doug time to get 'em up there. He's a busy man (at least that's what he says ).

                            i too, thought #1 was a PS production, they're both fine and eminently usable; thanks Gooch. Gooch is fun to say, too, thanks for that. and your avatar is goochpooch.

                            i almost asked you what are brush is but after i said it a few times i figured it out. duh

                              One thing the airbrush and PS have showed me is that prior to painting a studio background... I usually redo 6 per year..
                              I can get a feel for it in PS. I have also noticed that with a little practice I should be able to duplicate my studio background effect in PS. I'm still learning for I only have had PS for 3 months.. I use to use corel prior to that.

                                hi there...
                                i´d like to know how to set another background into a studio shot. for an example i link to an artist i like very much.. this artist almost only shoots studio-scenes and creates his images himself. his composings are very cool..

                                take a look here:

                                Hello
                                I took a picture of my son and have removed the background. Now I am placing a studio background in it. But the problem is that my son is sitting in the photo. How do I show that the half of the background is on the back and on half of it he is sitting.
                                I can put the shadow under...

                                by graham5
                                I believe one of the keys to a great smudge painting is the use of the background. What are some of the common techniques/tips that are used to change the background so it will better reflect the subject? Do some just repaint the background, remove it altogether and put something else there, or what...

                                by yyhow
                                Hey guys, my first time posting on this forum.
                                I've messed around with this image for quite some time and I have no where else to turn to.

                                So originally this image was in a portrait layout and I want to switch it to landscape. So I've copied and pasted to extend the background....
