With a 20 or 24-foot long backdrop you’ll be able to cover just about every style of portraiture and product photography. These backdrops are great if you want to photograph a larger family full-length, or have a video shoot that requires movement. These long backdrops are great for when you want to pull your subjects far from your backdrop as well.
The most simple way to hang a backdrop is by using wall hooks. This solution is suitable for people using smaller and lighter backdrops. 5 x 7-foot X-Drop Backdrops and 3.5 x 3.5-foot backdrops feature built-in grommets for use with hooks. While you can install these into your wall, we recommend picking up a pack of removable wall hooks to protect your walls. They are usually under $10 USD per pack.
Buyer beware!! Fell apart after 1 use :( The plastic pieces separate from the poles. The adjustment valve on one side is completely stuck so I cannot adjust sizing. Seller dismissed my contact...I'd honestly just like to exchange for hopefully one that is not defective but seller in not responding. Very disappointed in this purchase. I buy from Amazon very often and this has been my first issue with low quality merchandise.

I shoot videos and portraits of classical and acoustic guitarists and have a small collection of backdrops I carry around. The StudioPRO 5' x 7' Blue Collapsible Twist Muslin is one of my favorites: convenient to transport, fast to set up and easy on the eye. It's a blue muslin marbled with random patches of white and darker grayish blues, almost resembling the sky with popcorn clouds. I love how it photographs and my sample is a little darker and more attractive and than the product photos.
As with lighting systems and camera equipment, backdrops require some kind of support to keep them in place. Background supports can be simple or sophisticated systems. The simple ones are easy to set up and break down and are well suited for location work, while sophisticated, permanent studio systems can hold multiple backgrounds that can be raised or lowered either manually or at the flip of a switch.
If you're looking for photography backdrops suitable for outdoor or portable use, collapsible backgrounds are both economical and space-efficient choices. Many fold down to a third of their size, and come with convenient carrying bags so you have room to pack and protect multiple backgrounds. Several styles feature reversible designs, to give clients a choice of colors and patterns. Pastel pink and blue backgrounds work well for baby showers. Urban-inspired prints let kids and teens show off their more expressive side. You'll also find options in camera-ready, chroma-key colors suitable for special effects projects.
