Collapsible backdrops have been around for quite a while, but they are just recently receiving the attention they deserve. Photographers use these handy tools when they need better environmental controls and because they are so versatile. These collapsible backgrounds are available in Solid, Chromakey and Muslin finishes to fit most situations. The compact design unfolds to a measurement of 5′ X 6′ to accommodate one or two subjects, head shots and children perfectly. They setup in seconds and store in the included carrying bag. Velcro straps make it easy to attach to a stand or prop securely.
What do photographers say about the reversible backdrop?
The collapsible backdrops fold to approximately one-third the expanded size, making it portable and lightweight for easy transportation to locations and from one place to another in the studio. The convenience of having multiple backgrounds with both horizontal and vertical display is an added bonus. In addition to being easy to attach to a variety of surfaces, the Velcro straps add stability and balance. The materials are suitable for outdoor and indoor settings. Reversible backdrops eliminate the need for numerous units giving you two backgrounds for photography for the price of one.
Taking care of your collapsible backdrops protects your investment.
Routine scheduled maintenance is highly recommended for your collapsible backgrounds. Muslin fabric should be spot cleaned with a damp, white cloth and when necessary a mild solution of Woolite or a similar delicate fabric cleaner. Do not use harsh chemicals on the Muslin. If the reversible backdrop develops wrinkles, use a light steam to gently iron them out. Some photographers prefer to let these versatile backgrounds for photography hang to allow the wrinkles to fall out on their own; others stretch the fabric until the wrinkles are pulled out. Be gentle and take the time to care for your tools for a long service life.
Backgrounds for photography have multiple uses.
Outside the portrait studio you will find collapsible backgrounds in corporate settings for employee badge photos, at the local passport office and for premium quality YouTube video productions. If you like green screen technology, consider a Chromakey reversible background. You can experiment with the reversible green and blue screens for special effects in photography and filming.
Collapsible Backdrops add flexibility, versatility and convenience to your photo sessions. The portable, lightweight design gives you better environmental control. They are perfect for on-the-move head shots, too.
