Computer Printed Backdrops

Printed backdrops, megapixels, custom backgrounds, computer printed backdrops — while the origins of photography can be traced back to 1790, it certainly has come a long way since then. The very first printed photography image emerged in 1826, and the first color photograph in 1861. Backdrops in portrait photography showed up in the mid-1800s and were primarily painted vignettes on canvas, cloth or curtains.

Technology continues to shape other aspects of photography as well, including the selection of props, backdrops and studio equipment that are now available to the photographer.
