Photo backdrops are very useful in a studio. You can use paper backgrounds, or material backgrounds, depending on what type of effect you are wanting and whether your background stand will take a paper roll, which can be heavy. Plain Textile backdrops give a blank canvas for product shots and the batik style background has a self pattern to give added interest. Photographic backgrounds are available in various colours and finishes and are really easy to set up. The re-usable photo paper background is used once and then the paper that has been spoiled is ripped off and the next part of the roll used. This means that the taking of a studio photo is quick and easy with the lights being set up once and then left on that exposure.
