CLASSROOM: How Singaporean Photographer Shavonne Wong Shot This With a Cheap and Unimpressive Looking Backdrop
Photography can become ridiculously expensive with gear and props and all the other necessities. So when there is a chance to save, I save!
This shoot was planned really last minute as the model was in Singapore for only a short amount of time so I didn’t really have the luxury to come up with a strong concept. Deciding to do away with my usual plain backdrop, I remembered I had some shiny red paper stored away that I had bought on a whim for $1 a piece. So, I did a little arts and crafts and taped them all together. Honestly, it looked like a kid did it, but I knew it was going to be good enough for photography with lights and magic to turn it into a fabulous background. I taped it up to two C-Stands and voila, new backdrop!
