Join Joseph "PhotoJoseph" Linaschke for an in-depth discussion in this video Fabricating false walls for a clever backdrop solution, part of The DIY Photographer.
- When it comes to creating a backdrop for your photo-shoot,…you have a lotta different options.…You can buy a seamless roll of paper.…It's called a seamless and they come in…any number of colors and a couple different sizes…and they're relatively affordable…and they are readily available,…you can buy 'em at pretty much any camera store.…So you can have a really nice, smooth, clean background.…So that's a great option.…In an earlier DIY video, we explored the idea…of going to the fabric store and buying…different pieces of material to use as your backdrop.…So that's another choice that you have.…
Today though, we're gonna talk about…painting your own backdrop.…Sometimes the color that you need…just isn't available in material or on a seamless…or sometimes you want something that's…a little bit more natural or a little bit more organic…than what you'd find on a seamless roll.…So this is when you wanna start thinking…about painting your very own.…Now, unfortunately, we don't all have…a big blank wall that we can just paint…
That's the idea behind The Do-It-Yourself Photographer. Photographer and educator Joseph Linaschke shows how you can fashion ordinary items—from plastic cups to clamps to parchment paper—into accessories that will improve lighting, stabilize your camera, and much more.
So roll up your sleeves and break out the gaffer's tape. Learn how to become a DIY photographer.
