Building a Photography set using Candy Stick Backgrounds

by Victoria Meadows

Being a military wife and moving from state to state every couple of years presents a number of challenges. Being a photographer with a home based business adds many more.
One of those challenges is building a studio that can be packed at the drop of a hat and moved to a new location. Nothing can be permanent. Because we are always renting the house and usually not for a very long time, I can not paint it the colors I want and wall paper is always out of a question. So improvisation and innovation become valuable set of skills to have.

Few months ago I decided to build a Victorian bedroom set. Something simple that I can tweak around if needed and easily match the client's look.
One of the things I knew for sure is that I wanted to cover up the plain walls. That's when the search began.
I looked at wall paper, hopping to find a non-permanent one. Something that will easily come off when we move. I looked at fabrics, but I would need yards of it, and the price was a lot more than  I was willing to pay. I looked online and in stores and talked to a lot of people looking for a solution. Ultimately I wanted a large sticker in the right color and design that I would peel off when I was done with it.
One day shopping for a new backdrop on Backdrop Outlet website I came across Candy Stick Backdrops. I watched the video  provided and was so excited. 
That is exactly what I was looking for!

Right away I searched through a multitude of designs and selected one I loved the most.
 I placed an order for two Candy Sticks . Since I only needed to cover half of the wall from floor up I ended up cutting each backdrop in half, and that game me enough to cover the corner I was building a set in.
Candy Sticks are so easy to use and provide the versatility I need. I was very impressed with the quality and vibrant colors. Since then I have purchased few more of the backdrops and love using them for my photo shoot.
I am sure there are many different ways to use the Candy Stick Backdrops... this one is mine
