Seamless paper backdrops among other backdrops are great for photography backgrounds, but sometimes, you want a background with some real texture. While having several different walls painted different colors or having different textures sounds great, the space and size of a studio can put limits on what you can actually do.
Well, what options do you have to add more walls to your studio? A simple way to get around the limitations of space is to have some moveable backdrop walls; ok, well, maybe it's not that simple.
Coming from Mango Street and a collaboration with Daniel DeArco, they share their design and the process behind creating their own moveable, double-sided photo backdrop. This isn't for the faint of heart; I suggest you have some skills behind woodwork and the tools required for building such a backdrop. You can watch as they break down the build into steps and show you the process and wrap it up with a photoshoot showing the new double-sided wall in action.
While this was a fairly simple overview of the process, if you are familiar with building similar objects, you should be able to fill in the steps and build your own version. Do you think this is something you would give a try? Show us some of your examples in the comments below.
