The Savage 5 x 6' Collapsible/Reversible Lakeside Background saves you the trouble of purchasing two separate backdrops. This easy-to-use accessory allows for quick and easy set up - and, if you're in the middle of a shoot and desire a different color background, just flip it over and there you are, ready to shoot again.

The background is a "snap" to set up with its spring action - and when you are done, it easily reduces to 1/3 its size. When you're carry lots of gear, that's a real space-saver. The piece includes a durable carry bag which can be thrown into the car trunk or stuffed into a large gear bag.

Clip it to an optional light stand or prop it up against a wall. When you're in someone's office and need a down-and-dirty head shot, this background can save the day.

    Great size--large, but manageable. I've ordered 6x7 pop-ups, and they are too big. What I really love about this one is that it has a loop on the short side AND TWO LOOPS ON THE LONG SIDE. This means you can turn it sideways and use it with a background stand, allowing you to photograph two people, maybe even three if they squeeze in tight (two parents and a little one).

    I love the dark grey side--I'm not a fan of the other side, as it seems to have a slightest greenish cast. Perhaps that is something I can deal with in post production, or maybe it had to do with the natural light situation I was in.

    Also wish it didn't have so many tight wrinkles in it. The way out will be to keep people a bit further in front of it so that they will blur out.

    Nice Backdrop but colors don't match

    This backdrop works fine for single-person portraits and appears to be a well stitched, decent quality portable backdrop. Being double-sided, it's nice to offer 2 backgrounds, especially when traveling to shoots.Read complete review

    This backdrop works fine for single-person portraits and appears to be a well stitched, decent quality portable backdrop. Being double-sided, it's nice to offer 2 backgrounds, especially when traveling to shoots.

    On the negative, the pink-colored side on my backdrop isn't pink at all, it's brown. Based on reading other reviews, I get the feeling the people painting these 'hand-painted' backdrops don't follow a strict color guide, so what you get may not even be close to the picture. Also, the material is covered with fine wrinkles, so I'd suggest leaving lots of room between your subject and your backdrop and get as much bokeh as possible to hide these wrinkles.

    If you don't mind the color issue or wrinkles, this backdrop works fine.

    I was a little disappointed by how thin the material was. You have to make sure you have it up against something solid. It pops up and folds nicely and keeps it's shape well. It does photograph nicely though.

      I was tired of carrying multiple lightstands and bars to set up a small muslin sheet for headshots. This product does away with that! It's sturdy, flexible, and there are little velcro straps on the sides so you can secure it to a lightstand or some other fixture. The blue side is gorgeous.

              This backdrop is beautiful. However if you do a search for Savage "Lakeside" backdrops, the color of this backdrop on line is all over the place! Anywhere from greenish yellow to grey to blue grey. My monitor is calibrated. The darker side looks more like a brownish grey when photographed with studio lighting (See attached image). The reverse side is a light green/yellow.

                The quality seems ok (though not as sturdy as my Westcott Black/White pop-up).

                I light the double vercro hanging loops.

                It's probably just me, but this looked mostly grey and a bit blue in the photo. It turned up much more purple/pink than I was expecting. I can't see me using it in colour at all. Maybe B&W.

                I would not recommend it because I don't like the colour, but the build is fine if it's the colour you want.

                Received the product and the metal surrounding ring was broken and background was unusable. Even if it had been in perfect shape I would not have kept it.

                The size is nice and the idea behind it is good, but it lacks in execution. The fabric is like a heavy t-shirt material that is "hand painted". The paint is basically a couple of heavy brush fulls of paint that is not very interesting to look at and not really applied like you would expect.

                    I purchased the collapsible back drop to take on photo shoots to give consistency to my head shots while shooting on location. The backdrop itself is great quality for the price. The backdrop pops open and sets up easily. It is a breeze to fold up - unlike others I have tried. The handle on the carrying case/bag tore off after one use - the stitching looks like it could stand to be reinforced. I am happy with this purchase - I even purchased the backdrop in the another color (earth tone which came with a backdrop stand)

                    Please note that the backdrop can be propped up against a wall but occasionally will flop over. I recommend using with a stand for added stability.

                      I have been shooting location portraits for years and always used a large muslin with two stands and a cross bar. The amount of time and energy saved on the first shoot with this device paid for itself. One stand, one clamp and snap of the wrist and it is up and ready. There are other companies that make similar products for less money, they they are ugly...awful looking. The Savage has a nice hand painted and subtle look my clients rely on from me. Great product.

                            I used this to do head shots at a writer's conference located at a church. It gave me great options and I used both sides. The only thing was that I wished I had a stand. I used a chair which was a pain

                              I just received this in the mail today, and I already love it. I originally bought it for corporate portraits, and was just hoping for something to start out with. But this thing is great! It's so easy to use. It's much bigger than I had expected (which is a good thing) and the stand it comes with makes it look so professional! The two sides are going to be so helpful, and if you're good with photoshop, you could alter the colors if you wanted. It is SO EASY to fold back up, too. I am never good with collapsible products - I always have trouble and end up fumbling around with it for awhile before getting it to collapse - but this background took me less than 10 seconds to collapse. I can't wait to look this professional, especially in front of the CEO of the huge hospital I will be shooting at! Thanks b&h. I love it! SO WORTH THE MONEY.

                                I have to shoot some talking heads and my studio is my 2 car garage. So move the cars out, pop up the background, set up the lights and camera and you have an instant studio with these Savage backgrounds. They are light weight too so you can take them on location.

                                  Comments about Collapsible/Reversible Background (5 x 6', Indigo Nights):

                                  I use it on my home (SMALL) Studio which fits the collapsible background perfectly. The Darker side of it is what I use mostly as it's Blue textures or drawing is really beautiful blend with the dark background. It's great to use and easily carried to a location if needed. The opening and closing is easy and you can see it in action in the B&H Video section or in their youtube channel.

                                  I have no problem recommending this product to anyone who needs a portable beautiful background.

                                  IMO the only thing stopped me from giving it a 5 stars is the other side (Or the LIGHTER) one is not as elegant as the Dark one.

                                  All in All it's great product.

                                    Really good and portable background for small studio or on location.
                                    I use it on my home (small) studio. I really like the blue texture or drawing on one side ( the darker side) better the the other but YMMV
                                    It's easy to collaps and to open and it's described in detail on B&H video section and on their channel on YouTube

                                    I can recommend it any time to any one
