There are many approaches that you can use in photography that focuses on clothing, but going with a Minimalist background is sometimes a wise choice. For fashion photography, the goal is to draw the eye to the best qualities of a garment. A viewer sometimes can be distracted by an excessively elaborate backdrop on the picture. Excessive detail in the background can also be a problem when some feature of it might be unappealing to the viewers, which then makes the clothing less appealing by association. However, the potential value of a Minimalist background should never be underestimated and I was surprised to see how alive the details appeared allowing the clothes at the center of the picture to shine.
