Choosing the suitable backdrop for your photos

The photos that we have seen may be black and white, or they may be coloured photos. We may not be professional photographers but we can differentiate which are good photos and which are not so good ones. Taking good photos depends on many factors such as lighting, background colour, good quality camera, just to name a few.

When it comes to photo taking, the backgrounds or backdrops play an important part in the image. Choosing the wrong background could either make or break your photo. If you are creative, you could either make your own photography backgrounds or you could visit online websites selling backdrops such as starbackdrop. You can get some great ideas from the wide range of backdrops available.

There are different types of backdrops and they are mostly made of paper, fabric example canvas or muslin, medium density fibreboard sheets, and etc. They are available in many colours, ranging from plain colours to mottled canvas.

Paper rolls are available in various width and colours. These paper backdrops are not expensive but they crease easily unless you are looking for an abstract texture with a mottled wrinkle effect. Fabric backdrops are also popular because of their variety and portability. Between the two, canvas is more bulky and heavy whereas muslin are lighter. 

If you are looking for a more creative and tailored look, you can source for old wooden boards with brown texture to create a backdrop for your photography. For smooth surface backdrops, you can easily paint the preferred colour on a medium density fibreboard. Not only that, you can repaint them for future use. These are lightweight and can be easily stored without taking up much space. 

Backdrops are usually draped over or hung as panels to give a particular effect for the photos. They can also be suspended from backdrop stands by using clamps.  There are many types of background stands available to support the different backdrop types and sizes, depending on the type of effect required by the photographer.
