Have you been getting the itch to capture some creative full-body photos against a bright and bold background, but your floor just doesn’t work with what you’re going for? Perhaps you just want a creative pattern or setting that you probably won’t find in any normal home. With hundreds of printed backdrops available at Backdrop Express, you have the potential to offer an entire one-of-a-kind set up for your next photo shoot for any client – even the four-legged kind!
Love the look of glamorous glitter and shining sparkles for those extra special portrait sessions? We do, too! Do you love sweeping and cleaning up the mess from a pound of glitter strewn across the floor that’s also somehow made it’s way into every crack and crevice in the room? We don’t, either! Here’s where we introduce our new Glitter Patterned Backdrops… a printed background collection that’s suitable and convenient for any studio!
Photo Courtesy of Ryan WalshBrick wall backdrops are a trendy way to create grungy portraits in the studio. Their worn, weathered and industrial appearance lends itself well to fashion photography and edgy senior portraits. Our most popular brick backdrop is our Grunge Brick – see what our customers like best about its realistic and cool style below!
What’s cuter than a peacefully sleeping newborn baby? Perhaps one snugly swaddled in a soft cloth wrap, bundled in a rustic bowl or even dressed in a sweet teddy bear hat. What about placed on a vintage wooden floor? We’ve seen our photography floordrops popularly used for newborns and baby portraits, especially our rustic and distressed wood floordrops. The vintage look is very popular in portrait photography and these studio floordrops can help you, as a photographer, set any scene you wish to make each and every portrait session unique. Check out these BE customer photos featuring one of our popular floordrops and tell us which one is YOUR favorite!
School’s out, kids are home and not a lot’s going on this summer? Make it a weekly activity for your kids to plan out their very own special summertime photo shoots! Build up an inventory of summer backdrops and props to go along with your sweet models and encourage their (and your!) imaginations to run wild!
Kids’ birthdays are major milestones. The younger they are, the more impactful the day is for them. To make your child’s birthday party a truly memorable occasion, a party theme can really bring it all together. Decorations, games, activities, snacks, a photo booth, presents and, of course, a birthday cake will all help to make the day special, but party themes that tie all of these elements together are what your child and the guests will remember the most. One of the best ways to convey party themes is with special birthday backgrounds.
When it comes to selecting a photo backdrop for a special holiday or event, your possibilities are endless. While popular pattern and color styles come and go with the seasons, as a photographer it’s important to stay on top of the current trends and offer the best options for your clients. A current style trend we’ve noticed this year are themed Chalkboard Backdrops – specifically for two pretty different niches: school portraits and wedding party pictures!
