Choosing the right backgrounds for photography adds depth to your photos and makes a big impact on the overall professionalism of your shoot. Whether you are choosing a studio backdrop or paying close attention to items that occur in the background area on location can make or break your shoot. A misplaced item can throw a photo off, but creating a seamless scene brings depth and dimension to the photo.
Experienced photographers know that a much better solution than tacking backdrops to walls is to buy a background support stand. This is a simple device, which can support a variety of different kinds of background paper and backdrops.
When you purchase a muslin background, it will be folded and packaged. Remove it from the package and hang it on your backdrop stand, spray the fabric evenly with a spray bottle of water and let gravity iron out the wrinkles. If you need to use it right away, use a hand held fabric steamer. It removes wrinkles and creases easily and quickly. Just be sure to not rub the muslin with the steam head or you might damage the muslin fabric.
