This is an interesting topic and it makes a valid point. It's also the preference of others. I've noticed that this seems to be the preference of bow makers and photographers.
I would say that you could still use the floor, but use the photo frame as a "plate", platform, so to speak. Your in between. That way you still have your faux floor, but people won't think that it's on the floor.
To be honest I thought a lot of the flooring was real, until I saw post about backdrops. I was also wondering why the demask background is such a big thing as well. I think its cute, but everyone uses it.
