Today we will tell you about one of our favorite accessories for shooting in photostudio. Surprisingly, but it is rarely used in Russia though it is very simple. Its scope is very wide. Now, for example, it is used as a background. Note there aren’t additional things for support. Two sheets are connected together, and it gives stability to this construction. In this case, we took foam board (foamcore) that is why our construction is lightweight and it can be moved without help of an assistant. Sides can be painted in different colors, we recommend black and white. For example, it is convenient to create a truly black background on photo. This construction can be folded in any direction Later, we’ll show you how to glue sheets in such a way. Sometimes you need to fencing off the light flux So you can use this construction as a black flag White side will serve you as a reflector that can be used for filling in shadows, Or for softing main light Let’s look at a smaller version of v-flat how to glue two pieces of foam board Fold them together and join them with duct tape Better to take a stronger tape, not the one we used for this example. Then turn the construction and flatten the resulting bump. Now glue duct tape once more on top. In a large scale it is, of course, much more difficult to do, so it’s better to ask someone to help you. Construction is ready It can be rotated and placed as you like. Now you can paint it in the color you want
or leave as it is.
