Photo Backgrounds

Recommended Posts

It seems like a lot of people have almost professional looking backgrounds for their finished photographs. I'm just using a piece of paper with a lame textured design on it, and was wondering where folks got theirs?

 

Example of mine:

Examples of cool looking background:

(I borrowed these from a couple of threads in the Show Off section,)

I believe this is where I downloaded my backdrops from. It's just a piece of paper as well, printed at home on my color laser printer.

Derek Schubert clued me in to these when I asked him how he gets such great looking back grounds: Canson Art Paper (Derek, if I linked the wrong one, please correct me). They are the best thing I have found to date.

I went looking for images of photo backdrops and photo gradients saved as couple of the images as jpegs then ran them through Microsoft Office Photo editor, pushing the colors around. I picked 3 that I liked and then printed them out on a color laser printer on 11"x 17" paper. Viola backdrops for my lightbox.

I back hangar 18's kickstarter and was pleased when they added a backdrop as a freebie, but they pulled the project :down: . However they are going to relaunch it in a couple of months. ::D:
