Most studio photographers use some type of backdrop when they are shooting studio work. Whether they are shooting portraits, still life or product photography, having a uniformed background goes a long way toward having your subject stand out. You can choose to buy a stand for your backdrop, which are available at most photography retailers. You can also build your own backdrop stand using 1-inch PVC piping and connectors.
