Studio photography lets you exercise complete control over your environment, allowing you to shoot anytime, day or night. Unfortunately, studios also have one weakness: plain backgrounds can be a bit boring for certain photo shoots. Recently, however, new products have been coming out that really liven up the old background standbys that have been in use for years. Floor drops – realistic recreations of various floor materials – offer photographers a way to create incredibly detailed environments for their subjects, with very little effort.
