Shopping Collapsible Backgrounds
If you do many photo shoots outside of your home or studio, collapsible backgrounds can come in very handy. When it comes to setting up the perfect headshot or school portrait session, you have several options, such as muslin backdrops, wrinkle-resistant drop cloths, and printed vinyl designs. Choose from a variety of high-quality products from trusted names, such as Studio Essentials, Lastolite, and Savage collapsible backgrounds.
Using Collapsible Backgrounds
No matter what your photography needs, backdrops work for a range of projects. Full-length options, including super collapsible backgrounds, let you take body shots and family photos in landscape or portrait mode, while compact styles work well for close-up product photography and eye-catching auction listings. Many portable backdrops roll or fold up neatly, some down to 1/3 of their size, so you can pack them up and carry them virtually anywhere. Select options come with built-in background lights to suit high-key lighting setups.
Choosing a Collapsible Background Design
Backdrops come in a range of designs and colors, including urban collapsible background designs, solid prints, and scenes from nature. Rustic and distressed textures are great choices for wedding photo booths and candid group shots. Subtle designs can help you quickly pull focus to the subject of each photo, speeding up waiting times during school photo sessions. Those who prefer neutral tones may want to consider different shades of gray or the old standby of a collapsible white background. If you regularly work with special effects and live TV shots, you'll also find camera-ready chroma key backgrounds.
Collapsible Reversible Backgrounds
You can save even more space with versatile two-sided backgrounds. Reversible backdrops come in several styles, such as black and white, pink and blue, and plain and textured fabric designs. Select designs feature hand-painted details to give backgrounds a more authentic look, lending themselves particularly well for fine-art photography and modeling shoots. Most backgrounds come with zippered carrying bags so you can keep them in pristine shape. Several fabrics and vinyl backdrops are also spot washable and resist creases and wrinkles, ensuring they're always ready for action.
Collapsible Background Kits
Whether you're new to photography or an experienced professional, you may find background kits an ideal solution for your mobile photography needs. Kits come with everything you need to get started, including background supports, fasteners, and a convenient carrying bag. Lightweight and streamlined construction allows for smooth transport and easy set-up. The adjustable locking stands let you work at a variety of angles and heights as well. You can incorporate a variety of compatible collapsible backgrounds and materials, or use the reversible designs that come with each kit.
