Muslin backgrounds have stood the test of time across photography studios for decades. These traditional painted cloth backdrops may not be the first look that comes to mind when creating a mood board for your next studio editorial or fashion photo shoot if you’re immediately brought back to your family’s cringe-worthy 1990’s annual studio portrait sessions… but we challenge you to take pause, think back a bit farther in time to an era of Victorian elegance and dramaticism for styling inspiration!
Recently, fashion and portrait photographer, Mike McGee used the the Milano Hand Painted Muslin Backdrop for a wedding dress shoot. The textured, elegant look of this backdrop make it easy to capture stunning timeless portraits.
Mike McGee enjoys working with a variety of seamless paper backgrounds for his studio portraiture, ranging from Pure White to Black.
I personally love the versatility of a Pure White Seamless Backdrop. The simplicity of Pure White allows for limitless shooting options.
