The holidays are sneaking up on us pretty quickly now – and this year the gift shopping landscape has changed quite a bit. Gone, at least for now, are the “Black Friday Midnight Madness” crowd-goers rushing out to every tech retailer the instant their Thanksgiving pumpkin pie forks hit the sink. Instead, most of us will find our retail therapy online, looking for those just-right items perfect for the ones we care about. Here are a few photographer holiday gift ideas for every photographer on your list…
Have you seen the new Savage C-Stand in action? Let us break down the various unique applications only our patent-pending c-stand design offers!
Here at Savage Universal, we’re often asked “What colors should I choose?” With 55 vibrant colors in five different sizes, deciding where to begin with seamless background paper might be a challenge. We’re here to offer a few suggestions!
So you just got your hands on your first Savage Seamless Paper Background… you may be wondering just what you’re supposed to do with it now?! Have no fear, we’re here to help demonstrate a few common methods for easily setting up a roll of seamless paper and will have you photographing your first client (or yourself) in no time!
I usually carry at least 2 backdrops with me. I’ve found that if I carry the Blue Jean Paper and Plum Paper backdrops that between the 2 of those at least one will be a perfect fit for the animal I’m photographing. This is because dogs aren’t blue or plum colored, so both backdrops will typically contrast quite nicely with the animal.
Careful backdrop storage will minimize wear and tear while also making it easy to access and use the backgrounds when needed.
On-the-go photographer? Need to be mobile for events such as weddings or birthdays? Then we are excited to introduce our Drop Stand! This easy set light stand has auto-extending and collapsing legs that allow for quick and easy re-positioning of lighting. This unique tool allows a photographer to navigate tight crowds no matter the event.
We’re proud to introduce the new Savage Drop Stand™ – An Easy Set Light Stand! Auto-extending and collapsing legs allow for quick and easy repositioning of lighting when moving between groups and in tight spaces. Our friend, Rob Lopshire of Lopshire Photography, recently had the chance to test out a couple Drop Stands in his own studio. Check out his experience on his blog!
Are you stuck in a rut? Do you keep working with the same background and getting the same results? Why not diversify your Savage seamless background options for more inspiration!
When I signed my lease I really had no idea of what I needed and it took me a little while to figure out what was a smart purchase for the studio over something that would become expensive clutter. Aside from backdrops, backdrop stands and lighting rigs, I’ve outlined other items that I wish someone told me to buy when I moved into my studio!
