I chose to photograph a still life because it would allow me to repeatedly test various techniques without a shift in the subject and I did not have to worry about the potential motion blur that would come from photographing a living subject.
While I have played a bit with color gels in the past I shoot almost solely with strobes so I was eager to see how the constant light version of gels would work.
A few weeks ago I received two of Savage Universal’s new 5’ x 7’ Hand Painted Canvas Backdrops. I was excited to unwrap the Midnight and Ash canvas drops!
I recently received two 5’x7’ Printed Vinyl Backdrops from Savage Universal including the Blurred Street Lights and Blue and Orange Rust Backdrops. I have never utilized a vinyl backdrop previously so I was eager to give it a whirl and determine the pros and cons of the material!
Recently I had the opportunity to try out the new LED Video Light Plus from Savage Universal. The fact that the LED Video Lights are so compact and transportable made me fall in love at first sight!
Last week I received the Rustic Planks/Red Collapsible Backdrop by Savage Universal. This is from the new Grunge Collection of Collapsible Backdrops. I own several of these drops and have become a fan due to the ease of setup, collapsibility and their effectiveness for use them in small spaces. It is also super awesome that they are reversible so you are able to get a wider variety of images with one drop!
This week I received Savage Universal’s all new White Brick/Dark Gray Collapsible Backdrop. I have worked with previous designs of their collapsible drops before so I was very excited to get my hands on one from their new grunge collection! These backdrops are great for setup in small spaces, they collapse down for easy travel and are perfect for any type of headshot or ¾ length images you are looking to create.
Seamless paper can be extraordinarily helpful in creating a design your clients will love due to the wide range of colors available, affordable cost, as well as the ease of creating with a disposable product such as paper.
Being a photographer in the Northwoods, my clients love the rustic, weathered look so I was eager to try out the Gray Pine Printed Background Paper!
I recently received the Whitewash Printed Background Paper from Savage Universal. I typically shoot using large 10 foot backdrops and paper rolls so I was curious to see what it would be like to work with a 53” roll. I was also eager to see how realistic the paper would appear when photographed.
