I have noticed whenever a model is featured in an article their is a white background to it What exactly is that? I ask because I would like to write up an article of how I model in the bunk area of my truck Is that "white background" needed to write up a feature?

If so I guess that article of mine is a no-go I take clear photos But am not sure if that'll be good enough Thanks in advance

It could be a couple of things
1. it could be a white background...
2. It could have been a 'green screen' background. The author took a picture with a specific color and in photoshop or photo editing software 'replaced' the specific color with white. Kind of like what happens on TV with the weather people

here is a good article that should help.
