Top 5 Reasons to Start Using Small Photo Backdrops

I’ll start with a confession: when it comes to photography backdrops: I am not the most creative person. Sometimes, I can even hit a creative roadblock with product or food shoots on what to use for the background.

Before discovering SnapIt Boards, I have used bedsheets from the store, natural backgrounds, construction paper, and a few other things that just did not seem to work as well as I wanted!

With that said, I know that using backdrops can give you more opportunities to explore your creativity and improve your photoshoots. That is why I started looking for easier and more efficient ways to have the BEST backgrounds for my shoots. So here are five reasons why you should start using small and simple photography backdrops (like SnapIt Boards!) with your photoshoots!

1) You can use small photo backdrops anywhere.

This is one of the main reasons why I started using small backdrops. The convenience that they offer me is unbelievable. If you are just starting out, you may not have a studio or any other room to set up for your shoots. With small backdrops, you can take your photoshoot wherever you want it.

I have used small backdrops in my backyard, at the store, on my porch, and even inside of my car! You can use them for almost any type of shoot that you are working on. This opens up a bunch of new opportunities to try different things with your photos!

2) Photography backdrops are easy to set up.

Another reason why I enjoy using small backdrops is that they are super easy to set up. Most of the time, you do not need a large number of tools or equipment to put them together and use them for your photoshoot.

With SnapIt Boards, all you need to do is snap your backdrop into the brackets and you are ready to go!

Another great benefit when it comes to set up - these backdrops are easy to clean!

When you are using any backdrops for food photoshoots, you sometimes can get a little carried away and make a mess.

With SnapIt Boards, you simply just wipe it up and clean it with a rag. Simple and efficient.

3) You can easily carry around photography backdrops suitable for multiple photoshoots.

One of the best parts about using small backdrops is that you can easily carry them around. You can put them in a storage bag and bring them with you to your photoshoots.

This makes it super easy to set up for a new photoshoot without having to carry around large backdrops or even purchase more equipment if you are on a tight budget.

If you have ever worked with larger boards, you know that they can be cumbersome and get very heavy and hard to transport from place to place. With these small backdrops, you can easily transport them to different locations without any issues.

For those who love traveling and doing food photography, this benefit really comes in handy! There are no worries about carrying around large backdrops that take up a lot of space or cause extra weight.

4) You can easily store small backdrops when not in use.

This is another great benefit for those who like to travel and try new things with their photos. When you are at home, you can easily store these backdrops when they are not in use. You can slide them into a SnapIt Bag for storage without taking up much storage space.

Just unsnap it from the brackets, store it in a carrying bag and you are good to go!

5) Small photography backdrops are affordable.

The last benefit that I have found is that these backdrops are affordable.

Most of the backdrops I use come in combinations packs with multiple backdrops to use. They are of great quality and can help increase the amount of money you make for your photoshoots due to the professional quality they bring to the table.

This is perfect for those who are just starting out and want to try something new without having to spend a lot of money. These combination packs are affordable for anyone starting out.

If you are just starting out and would like to try something new without having to spend a lot of money, these combination packs are perfect for you. If you want more information on how SnapIt Boards can help your photoshoots stand out from the rest, check out our full collection.
