Context

Preparing for a presence on the interwebs has resulted in a liberal amount of amateur picture taking on my part. I’ll be the first to admit it’s not where my talents lie, but it sparked my curiosity where context is concerned. How much does background affect the piece of art in focus? Does a dramatic shot take concentration away from the piece, or add to it? If the object isn’t photographed against a solid backdrop, does it lack professionalism? Is it possible to use light, focus and composition to snap a shot that doesn’t influence the viewer?

Or is this creepy any way you look at it?
