The Angler 5x7' Collapsible Background Kit was put together by B&H to give photographers the option of shooting against a simple background or creating their own via chromakey. The kit includes a 5x7' black/white and a 5x7' chroma blue/green reversible collapsible backgrounds. A 13' Multiboom Light Stand with clips to hold the backgrounds is also provided.
Black and White Background
A versatile background, it's white on one side and black on the opposite side for high-key or low-key photos. The 5x7' size is useful for both headshot and product photography. This background features crease-resistant fabric with a stretch-frame that helps smooth the fabric and keep it wrinkle-free. Best of all, the background pops open and collapses to 1/3 its size quickly and easily. Touch-fastening straps on each side are used for hanging the background from a stand or other support. In addition, the background may be clamped to a flat surface and bent into a cove for tabletop photography. Spot washable, the background is easy to maintain. For convenience, a zippered storage bag with a hanging loop is included.
Chromakey Blue and Green Background
The Chroma Blue/Green has the same physical attributes as the black/white background, while its specialized colors allow you to key in the background of your choice in postproduction, using optional software.
Multiboom Light Stand
This versatile stand can support a small or medium light head at a height of 13'. Raise the second section completely, click, and convert to a boom stand that can support a small light extended of almost 3' from the center of the stand at a height of 9'. In boom mode, it's also a reflector holder that uses its 2 attached clips to support an Impact, Flexfill, or Photoflex light disc as large as 60". A hole at the end of the arm allows an optional counterweight to be hung for greater stability.
Angler Collapsible Background II 5 x 7' (Black/White)
This 5 x 7' Impact Collapsible Background II features reversible black and white sides that are useful for product shots and portraits as well as high-key and fashion photography. Its lightweight construction is suitable for studio or location shoots and it folds down into a compact circle for convenient transport and storage.
Made from 100% cotton, the bright white background gives a soft reflection that's great to use as a subtle and diffuse fill light. The black side absorbs light, helps eliminate unwanted reflections, and can deepen shadows. The collapsible background is stretched on a steel frame that creates a smooth surface and won't create inconsistencies in your lighting. The frame is self-supporting, so you can lean it against a wall or pole without an assistant to hold it up.

Reinforced with stylish black edging tape, this background is stretched onto a self-supporting steel frame, which pops open in a snap for support against a wall. Heavy-duty hook-and-loop fasteners are integrated into the top and sides of the rim for attachment to a background holder, stand, or tripod. After your shoot, the background collapses to one-third its original size for transporting and storage in the included circular carry bag with a see-through window.
