How to hang a backdrop?

When it comes to product photography, finding the right backdrops can make a world of a difference. Once you’ve done that, finding the right way to hold them up becomes even more important.

Luckily, we’ve got a quick guide to make it simpler for you to hold your backdrops in place, so it’s easier to take some awesome photographs of your cakes, confectioneries and any other product. Here’s how you can do it:

1.The power of people:

 While this sounds a little tricky, it can more than get the job done on a budget. All you need to do is have two people hold up the backdrop while a third person clicks the photos. It can save you a lot of money while also ensuring you’re never getting bad photos.

The pros outweigh the cons here, as you can get the job done at a much faster rate and it can also be adjusted according to your requirement. The only cons are it might require extra manpower, so try convincing your friends or family. it can become cumbersome if there are a lot of products to be shot.

2.Propped against a wall and taped:

 This is another effective way to hang a backdrop and get some pictures taken of the same. Just take the backdrop and tape it with cellotape, blue tack or even clips against a wall. This can be used to click multiple pictures before you take it off.

The advantage is that it can be set with just one person, so you don’t need manpower for the same. However, if not done properly, it can cause a little damage to the walls, so be careful of the same.


 Backdrop Clamps Backdrop clamps are the most often used way of attaching a background to a backdrop stand, and they are also the most expensive. Clamps are a low-cost, simple-to-manage tool that may be used again and over again. Simply fasten the background to the pole  and detach it after the shoot is over! Clamps are simple, fast, and completely damage-free.

When hanging a big background, begin at the centre and work your way outward. Check to see that the background between each clamp is smooth and straight before continuing. In order to get a tight, straight background, there should be no waves or inconsistencies in the hanging process.

Use these techniques and hang backdrops for beautiful pictures!
