Think back to your last handful of photo shoots. Did it include outdoor photography, high-key and/or Old Master backdrops? That makes sense, because it's the norm. Now think about what else there is to shoot. Think about your creativity and the thousands of other ways you can shoot your next model/client in a fun and new way. It doesn't have to include a half dozen props and it doesn't have to be at the ideal time of day to catch the sun just right. It can be in your studio, home studio or even out and about. Cater new styles to your needs!
Move over solid colors!
Themes such as Patriotic, Holidays and other events are tired
of the same old solid colors. You see it all the time. Red, white and
blue for the 4th of July. Red, green and white for Christmas. Pink and
red for Valentine's Day. They're simple, easy and yes...overdone. Why
not bring the action with a backdrop dedicated to each? With options
well below $100 you can't go wrong. Shown here are just two examples of
patriotic backdrops done right.
Your clients will be thrilled to shoot with backdrops geared directly towards what they were looking for. This can be used for military balls, maternity shoots, welcome home shots and much more. Shown in these images is just how easy these shoot. You can hang them vertical or horizontal to fit the direction you're going wit.
Cancel those studio renovations! -
Don't have anywhere cool to shoot? Lack the hours in the day to capture daylight? Do you shoot in your house or a small studio that doesn't have fun floors, walls and windows? We understand that completely. Shown here is just how versatile a new backdrop can be. What originally looks like grungy indoor setting quickly turns into a warm scenic view or a high contrast throwback. The options never end.
Shown below is what most photographers would die for in their studio. A natural brick wall to capture great senior shots, fun with kids or just the whole family. Why not bring that to your studio with affordable printed backdrops? Hit them with some warm light and let the colors pop!
We know you. You're the type of person that wants to make sure every client is happy with not only the finished product, but the entire process. Bring them more than they expect with some additional crazy styles. Why crazy styles? Well because kids love them! We all know that kids can be stubborn at times, but when you throw something fun behind them and say "act like your favorite super hero they!" they light up. Give it a try and remember "we told ya so". After they've got that big cheesy grin going you slide in Mom's favorite "back to school" styles and you've just made everyone grin ear to ear.
Working with new backdrop materials can be frightening. You don't know how they shoot, what angles to shoot them at and what ages work best with them. Posh Cloth is the answer to your fears. These 5x9 easy to use backdrops never fail to impress! They each have a sewn rod pocket at the top and are washer and dryer safe. They're 3D backdrops that supply tons of texture and depth in each and every shot.
They're as easy as hang, light, shoot!
So you've gotten this far and you've probably asked yourself a few times "what materials did they use and what size do I need?". Those are two great questions. We like to shoot a lot on smaller sizes. Backdrops we tend to shoot most are Candy Drops at 5x7 and Titanium Cloth at 5x6 or 8x8. We also use floors in those sizes or even as small as 4x5, 4x8 and 5x7 printed on our super durable Candy Floors. The best part of using smaller backgrounds is the option to mix and match. You can order three backdrops and three floors and have 9 or more setups available! And yes, we often use our backdrops as floors. Not using that brick backdrop? Lay it on the floor and shoot it!
