Photography – something I sometimes love and something that sometimes drives me crazy. One thing that has been helping me a lot of late to create better photographs is the use of backdrops.
They are perhaps one of the staples of many bloggers photography kits and come in all different shapes, sizes and designs. They even come in different forms, which means no matter the storage space you have, you should be able to find something to fit.
Personally, I have become really fond of PhotoBackDrops, who offer a wonderful selection of backdrops both in flexible PVC (which can be rolled up for storage) and a smooth PVC board (which of course cannot be folded or rolled, but does tuck nicely into small spaces).
No matter the type of backdrop you go for, from this company they are waterproof and easy to wipe clean. They also come in anything from A1, A2 and A3 in flexible PVC and A2, A3, 40 x 40, 50 x 50 and 60 x 60 in PVC board, with prices from £20 – £32 plus postage.
My favourite thing about PhotoBackdrop is perhaps the range you have to choose from, you can go for something quite plain, like the options I show above, white noise and sidewalk or something full of colour like BeautyQueenUK has with Skittles in the photograph below.
What's more, they really are good quality, I personally have only gone for PVC boards, as I can slot them behind the cabinet for storage. They are thankfully lightweight (I don't know why but I assumed they would be heavy before they arrived), making them easy to move. I've used them both on the floor and on top of the sideboard, depending if I am setting up for a longer session or snapping a quick picture.
I know from past post, I have quite a few readers who are either bloggers or photographers, so I thought it would a fun and different idea to offer up a backdrop for giveaway. When I got in touch with the lovely Lucy to just make sure she was OK with the idea she kindly offered me a discount code to offer to you all as well! So right now if you spend £40 or more at PhotoBackDrops you can use the code LIABD10 to get yourself 10% off your order value!
Of course I also said I would be giving away a backdrop so how can you be in with a chance to win yourself your chosen design, in the size and type of your choice? Well all you need to do is head over to the PhotoBackDrop website and let me know:
Which backdrop would you choose if you were the lucky winner, and what would you choose to photograph first using it?
