Backdrop

I'm doing my 1st amateur photoshoot of a newborn. It is really just for fun since they can afford a professional. What is a good backdrop to use? 

Re: Backdrop

  • Do have any cool textured blankets or fabric you could use?

    A nice knitted blanket would make for a really nice area to lay baby on, and extend behind him/her for a backdrop. Anything textured would work really well. I found TJ Maxx or Marshalls usually has some nice blankets for less than $20.

    a textured blanket works great. or hit a fabric store and you can get a couple yards of fabric for pretty cheap. if you dont have a backdrop stand you can use a rolling laundry rod/hanger or use painters tape to tape lighter fabric to the wall. or if you use a big blanket and lay the baby on it and then stretch the blanket out behind (I've been known to use the cloning tool in LR to clone the blanket and fill in corners of the frame lol - i dont know what editing program you use)

  • You could drape a blanket over the back of a chair or couch too.

  • Before I got my stand, I used a folding clothes rack that way I could use short fabric/blankets and attach it to one of the lowest horizontal bars.  Painter's tape also works well.
