Lastolite Urban Collapsible Backgrounds
Give portraits an urban look with these quick-to-assemble pop-out backdrops
Lastolite’s latest range of photographic backdrops includes designs to complement any modern
portrait shoot. Like Lastolite’s reflector range the backgrounds use a collapsible metal surround that can be packed into a case, which is lightweight and easy to carry and store, especially when compared with sheet backdrops. In use the backgrounds are quick to set up, popping out to full size in seconds. Repacking does require a special technique, but once you get it, it’s simple enough. The overall effect is realistic and any worries about shadows cast by flash lighting are quickly dismissed, as long as you get the lighting right. Each seven-foot backdrop is doublesided. You can also buy a magnetic stand for them.
