subject to white background question

Hey all

Nearly everything I’ve read talks about getting lots of distance between an overexposed white background and the subject or the background can overexpose the edges of the subject. Please let me know if I’m wrong, but I’m assuming that this is only relevant when not moving the camera in relation to the subject. As far as I understand, if I had to move subject and camera a few feet further away, I would end up having to increase the exposure of the background (due to falloff) and hence would be in the same situation as if the subject was closer but with less exposure……. Is that correct? Obviously, if keeping the camera/background distance constant, I can see why moving the subject would help.

Thanks

Alan
