There are many different photographic backgrounds whether you are capturing people or products. The possibilities are endless, from simple colors to speckled canvas. Paper, materials such as muslin or canvas, MDF sheets, pop-up backgrounds, and coves are all examples of many types of backgrounds. Fabric backdrops like canvas and muslin are popular for their versatility and portability. Canvas backdrops are often larger and heavier than muslin backdrops, but they can provide plenty of depth and color.
Muslin bottoms are made of cotton and are therefore lighter than canvas; however, they are also available in several forms. Paper rolls are available in a wide variety of widths and colors. The variety and affordability of paper rolls are positives, but they can be difficult to store. Another disadvantage of paper rolls is that they crease easily, which can show in your photos. They are also bulky to transport.
For product photography, many people frequently use wooden boards; you’ll see them in our live whiskey show and many food photography seminars. Wooden planks come in a wide range and can be purchased at a reasonable price. Old table tops can be repurposed as boards, and thrift markets and antique stores are great places to find unique pieces.
Pop-up backgrounds are great for photographers shooting on the go or in tight spaces. These reversible backdrops come in a variety of colors from basic gray to speckled blue, and many include a reversible side. They are lightweight, portable and inexpensive. However, their size is limited, which makes them difficult to use for full-length photography.
