    Backdrop Stand

    I am about to purchase a plain white backdrop and I was wondering if it is worthwhile purchasing the stand or trying to construct something myself. This is for a personal project and I won't be using it professionally for business.

    stands come in a range of sizes and considering the size of your hammocks, you are going to need a fairly large one. If it is going to gets lots of use, of course it is worth investing in. But considering your chosen location, you may just find attaching the backdrop to the ceiling could work just as well and save you the cost of the stand, for some other items to help your products appear their best

    I have a popup backdrop which works quite well and is pretty quick and easy to setup.

    I spent about $80 on a backdrop set up off of eBay a couple years ago, and have used it often without any issues. Goes really high and about 3m wide (the sheet I ordered it with is 6m long, so you don't risk "floor" in the shots too). It's great because I can set up anywhere, so I am not restricted if a situation changes.

    Plus, if in the near future, suddenly you can see yourself wanting to use it elsewhere, it comes in a handy carry bag to transport.

    The stand comes with two big tripod stands, and the poles to make it from 1-3m wide.


    ..just realised how old the thread was lol

    Decided to "shave" my signature ;]
    Now mostly shoots with: Canon 5D MK3 & Canon 24-70 f/2.8/50mm f/1.8 (also have a 550D with a variety of lenses/goodies and a Sony Nex-5N)
    PP with: Lightroom only, Photoshop is merely a 9-5 work tool for me.
