Create a great-looking backdrop fast.
Professional photo backdrops come in many forms, from specially painted walls to massive rolls of smooth, heavy paper that can be pulled down in the back of a studio to display different colours. However, you don’t have to construct a whole photography studio to get a good backdrop.
Build a DIY photo backdrop stand in a few easy steps.
Gather materials to build your own photo backdrop frame:
A photo backdrop for every kind of image.
Different kinds of photoshoots need different types of backdrops. Fortunately, a simple DIY backdrop like the one described above can handle all kinds of props.
A simple deep blue or beige background is low-key, unflashy and perfect for business headshots. Keep a blank photo background on hand for work-orientated photoshoots where subjects have to look job-ready.
Deck out your backdrop with tissue paper chains, sequins, paper flowers made of ombre tissue and accessories like hats or masks. Liven up birthday parties, baby showers and bridal showers with fun portrait photography.
A smooth wall painted a single colour or a large sheet of single-colour paper can be the springboard for countless fantastic scenes. Use background replacement features in Adobe Photoshop to make it look like you’re exploring the Amazon, blasting through space or partying with dinosaurs.
