I love looking for new unique ideas to infuse into my photography.
One of those ways is with backdrops.
I like simple and classic backdrops that aren’t going to distract from the subject, but instead add to it subtly.
I saw something like this on Pinterest, and Tom and I were sure we could make it.
We got lumber and the laminate at Lowes. We got a great deal on the laminate, and we were able to get the look exactly like I wanted.
I thought I got pictures of the building process, but I can’t seem to find them.
The back and bottom are two separate pieces. Tom made it so it can come apart for easy storing.
I really do like the sturdiness of this, but it can be a little bulky. I want to start looking for other vinyl flooring or paper that I could roll up. There is some great durable and thick fabric I have seen but it’s fairly pricey. This set up was really cheap to make since we found a lot of it on sale.
Here is some of my work with this backdrop.
I was able to fit a family of four on it to do some indoor shots, but I will mostly use it for kids. I really want to focus eventually on infant/child photography and the size is perfect for that.
