Shopping for Backdrop Support Stands and Other Accessories
If you plan to set up a photography studio with backgrounds for headshots, product photos, or other kinds of pictures, you'll likely need background supports and other related accessories to keep all your backdrops stable while working in the studio. Choose from backdrop support stands, clamps, and clips.
Using Backdrop Support Stands
There are many different backdrop support stands available. Most are easy to assemble, and many models snap together within seconds. Many collapsible backgrounds come with their own support stands included, which means you can easily transport and pull together and break down all of your gear at once when traveling from place to place. Other collapsible stands, available as separate accessories, are also simple to set up in seconds, saving you prep time. There are many different sizes available from small to large, depending on what you're shooting, up to 13 feet high. Most of these supports include crossbars to complete a full frame system for your backdrops. Select support stands come with advanced features, such as air-cushioned shocks and scratch-resistant matte finishes.
Clamps to Use for Backdrops
Clamps are essential for a wide range of photography applications, especially when working with backdrops and setting them up properly. A-clamps are simple but useful tools that hold your backgrounds in place while you shoot. If you're looking for something with a little more sturdiness, consider Impact or Manfrotto super clamps. Most of these clamps are quite versatile, and you can use them to hold up your lighting as well. Other types of photography clamps to think about include C-clamps or spring clamps.
