About This Class

In this class I'll show you my techniques and process for creating your own painted concrete backdrop.

As a lifestyle and product photographer, I'm constantly looking for clean, beautiful surfaces to take pictures on. I've built up a small collection of different backdrops that I can cycle through to keep my work looking fresh and varied.

Learning to make my own backdrops has saved me a ton of money and has given me the opportunity to create looks that are uniquely mine!

In this demonstration I'll be painting two double-sided backdrops so you have plenty of examples! For your class project, I wanna see how you implement these steps to create a concrete backdrop that is all your own!

After your backdrop is dry, it's time to put it to work!

I've included 4 shot demos in this class so you can see exactly how I set up and shoot with these surfaces. I'll be shooting with my DSLR and iPhone.

This class is great for any level of photographer who is looking to improve their product, food, art, or lifestyle photography.

Thanks so much for watching!
