If you’re a professional photographer, content creator or even just looking to create family pictures without using a professional then you’ll have thought about the background of every shot, from the location to the colours. Correct me if I’m wrong? The question is, have you ever thought about photography backdrops?
With a huge deal of national and global holidays on the horizon, it’s a perfect time to think about preparing your content. The end of October sees Halloween, we’re looking to Halloween Backdrops to create that eerie feel. If you’re an e-commerce store or you’re marketing your business online then we can’t recommend the use of reusable backdrops for your social media content, your newsletters and your site graphics.
How about looking to create the family’s Christmas card in advance? You’ve dug out the knitted Christmas sweaters. You’ve even managed to keep the antlers on the dog. But what about the tree? You can’t be putting that up this early right? IT’s simple, you just need to choose one of the many Christmas Backdrops to suit this year’s theme. Then set it up, snap a photo and have it converted into a Christmas card for the whole family.
Backdrops are a fantastic alternative to using a green screen. Green screens are used as backdrops in chroma key photography. Which if you’re unfamiliar is a process that replaces a solid-coloured background (usually green or blue) from behind the foreground to be replaced with a new background. When you watch the weather forecaster on TV standing in front of a map, or Spiderman climbing down a building these are prime examples of the use of green screen. The use of green screen requires knowledge of being able to edit and manipulate images.
Alternative to green screen
If you’re not comfortable with using programmes such as Photoshop or GIMP, although there are plenty of photoshop tutorials from PHLEARN available. Which I recommend looking at.
Photoshop not for you? If you’re looking for an alternative to the green screen then I ultimately lately recommend using a backdrop which fits your theme. They’re easy to install, can fold away compactly and, you can choose from different sizes depending on how man people are in your shot.
Have you used a graphic photography backdrop before? If so what are your experiences?
