Professional Photography: Infinity Cove or Infinity Curve?

At Silo Studios we are proud to showcase one of the largest infinity curves in Warwickshire! An infinity curve, also sometimes called an infinity cove, is used to create a stage with a plain, single-colour background.

The defining feature of an infinity curve is a lack of angles. Since an infinity curve doesn’t have any corners, shadows don’t gather in the background. The end result is a finished image where the subject appears to have been placed on plain white paper or a blank canvas. This sense that the background simply continues on forever in all directions is what gives rise to the term “infinity curve".

Infinity Curve for Product Photography

In product photography an infinity curve is popular, as photographers are able to clearly define the subject of an image by remove the appearance of a background of any kind. It’s also a commonly used approach among photographers who want to be able to easily mask objects during post-production work in Photoshop, and special effects designers often prefer to use it, too.

Portrait photographers also like to use this method to create the appearance of an ethereal, almost heavenly space around a subject.

Infinity Curve for Fashion Photography

Using an infinity curve sets a photographer apart from the rest of the pack. The look created by shooting subjects in an infinity cove is breath-taking, and the results can help a studio generate more business.

Silo Studios is one of few studios outside of London with an infinite cove, and at 7m x 4m, our cove is the largest in the Midlands.
