Here is a picture of a vintage, lace dress that I sold in my Etsy shop, taken in front of the screen door last summer before it was painted black.
Here is a picture I took of Zack showcasing Boy’s Winter Wear, in front of the black screen door.
Here is another old building with brick, old windows and a white door…again several places to use.
Here is another Boy’s Winter Wear photo taken in front of this building.
Besides looking for old buildings, look for ones that are painted bright or unique colors.
This picture from a recent post about Spring Fashion for Kids was taken in front of the blue building.
This white building has a worn, wood lean-to built on the side. Both the building and the lean-to could be used.
For another Spring Fashions for Kids picture, I had Zack and Vanessa stand on this wooden platform that you can see right in front of (or is it actually behind) the white building on the left side of the picture.
This old, rusty, peeling semi trailer is one of my favorite places to use a backdrop. Isn’t the back of the trailer cool looking? Plus, I love the aqua and yellow side but would have to bring a ladder or platform for someone to stand on!
This small but unique building could be used…especially the weathered, white wood.
Even this shack outside of a baseball diamond would make a good backdrop…especially those doors! I’m going to keep this one in mind so that I can use it in the future!
So, next time you drive around, keep your eyes open for fun backdrops. Remember that it doesn’t have to be a huge background because you will be getting close to the subject anyway! Also, check out the websites of some of your favorite photographers and see what they are using for their backdrops. This can give you some great ideas to keep in mind!
