Let us assume that you are a photographer who works primely outdoors. And one of the CEOs, whom you’ve met at an event shoot, has requested for corporate headshots. You don’t say NO to new opportunities, do you? You say yes, and in a week, arrive at his office space with your gear. You then hunt for a beige wall or a relatively seamless colored wall for obvious reasons of easing the Photoshop cuts later. It is not as easy as it sounds though, to crop the image and play with it in Photoshop to bring about the best background. It is time taking to an extent, and might very well look artificial affecting the output quality. Or, how about investing money on a good studio backdrop? Yes, the first thought that the seasoned mind hops on to is the price factor. But here are a few points that you ought to know about Studio backdrops.
WHY SHOULD YOU USE STUDIO BACKDROPS?
Studio backdrops come in a variety of colors, and especially when it is hand-painted like we do in MIZU, the possibilities are endless. The power to choose is amazing and you can craft the mood of the picture, as you want to. You can choose patterned/textured backdrops to establish an environment, or go with plain solid-colored backdrops that help in clutter-free images. In both the cases, the way you play with your lights will result in different moods.
Many of our photographer friends have agreed strongly to the fact that it is a time taking the process to sit and edit an image with regards to the background, than using a proper studio backdrop in the first place. Not only is the time in post-processing saved, but the final output will also be crisper and more natural. Well, time is money. You want to save it and use it wisely, don’t you?
A quality studio backdrop will give many years of fruitful service, especially if you take proper care of it. Our solid canvas backdrops, for instance, are made of the best material available, making the studio backdrops as a durable, the long-term solution for studio shoots.
When shooting corporate portraits and headshots, it is important that you maintain the uniformity of the background. The look has to be consistent and repeatable. Our canvas backdrops are ideal for sleek and smart portraits that reflect the character of the subject.
