This background effortlessly opens and collapses in seconds and folds down to 1/3 its open size.
Perfect for on location.
For any on-location photographer, sometimes finding a suitable background for your image is difficult. Take the worries out of scouting your location beforehand and be prepared for anything with these portable backdrops. They can be set up in seconds and easily leaned against a wall or hung using our collapsible and lightweight background stand.
Quickly change color.
Easily change backdrop color by applying a gel. A gel is a colored sheet of heat-resistant plastic that fits overtop of a background light. Light colored backdrops can be transformed into literally any color giving your backdrop endless amounts of possibilities.
Ideal for video conferencing.
Whether in the office or at home, quickly transform an unorganized space into a professional environment. Simply place this background behind you by leaning it up against a wall or using an optional collapsible background stand. The party you are conferencing with won't know whether you are in your office or a cluttered toy room.
Ideal for high-key and low-key lighting.
This background is the perfect pair for anyone doing high-key and low-key lighting. High-key lighting is when the background is twice as bright as the subject and is often used when the background needs to maintain neutral or is outlined and cut out through digital editing. Low-key lighting is when there is a great deal of contrast from the low-key and high-key areas providing a more dramatic result.
Two backdrops in one.
Be prepared for anything as this collapsible backdrop pairs both a Chroma-Key Green and Chroma-Key Blue together in one easy-to-use design. Clothing color will determine what backdrop should be used. When photographing a group of people one by one, this can cause a problem as most times clothing colors will vary greatly. With this backdrop, you can simply flip from one side to the other to whatever best fits your subject.
Ideal for 3/4 length and headshots.
This 5' x 6' backdrop is perfect for headshots and 3/4 length body shots. Keep in mind, the backdrop can also be mounted horizontally for a 6' width allowing for up to two subjects in a single image.
How to choose color.
This background is ideal for doing high-key and low-key lighting. Use the white side for High-key lighting. This is when the background is twice as bright as the subject and is often used when the background needs to maintain neutral or is outlined and cut out through digital editing. The black side is used for Low-key lighting. This is achieved when there is a great deal of contrast from the low-key and high-key areas providing a more dramatic result.
Backdrops can be mounted a variety of ways. They can be leaned against a wall or flat surface or hung using the included top handle strap. In addition, an optional lightweight collapsible background stand may be purchased.
