The color gray is one of the most popular and basic headshot backgrounds photographers have used throughout the decades. While white typically connotes cleanliness and innocence and black gives off a sense of drama or sophistication, gray is the most neutral shade to fit any kind of subject well. Often used in fashion photography, many photographers find it convenient to be able to easily alter their gray background to a lighter or darker shade by changing their lighting setup. Our Charcoal Gray Fabric Backdrop is a top seller among BE customers, who believe one of its biggest advantages is its wrinkle-resistance. If stored rolled or loosely folded when not in use, our solid color fabric backdrops will only require a quick steam from time to time to keep them looking their best. The poly/poplin matte fabric is easily cleaned, durable and available in a wide variety of beautiful colors. Here’s what a few Backdrop Express customers have told us about their new gray fabric backdrop as well as some photo inspiration submitted by our customers!

Photo Booth Backdrops The photo booth is back, and it’s come a long way since the days of the dime store model that spit out a strip of four B&W head shots. While that type of vintage photo booth can bring a fun and retro vibe to an occasion, modern photo booths are capable of so much more. The photo booths of today shoot in full color and are outfitted with high-tech touchscreen displays. They use the latest in high resolution photo printing technology, and some even have the ability to take high-definition videos. With all of these new innovations, it shouldn’t surprise you that photo booth backdrops have come a long way as well. Photo booths of old usually came with just one solid color sheet; today, the sky’s the limit. Why not have numerous backdrop styles on hand to satisfy any taste or preference? The following are some of the most popular and eye-catching photo booth backdrop choices available today:

Photography backgrounds have come a long way since the heavy, costly old-master style tapestries that used to hang in Victorian portrait studios. While these vintage looks and styles still have throwback appeal, photographers and their clients now have far more options to choose from. One of the most useful innovations to come along in photography supplies is the two-sided reversible backdrop. Reversible backdrops bring a whole new dimension of convenience, variety and cost-effectiveness to both studio and location photography. In addition to lightweight fabric or sturdy muslin, reversible backdrops are also made as collapsible backdrops, which makes them even more portable, mobile and easier to store. Beginners, amateurs and professionals all enjoy the benefits of reversible and collapsible backdrops in both their studio and location work.
