White backdrops are used for High-key lighting. This is achieved when the background is twice as bright as the subject and is often used when the background needs to maintain neutral or is outlined and cut out through digital editing.
Each background comes equipped with a 6" pole pocket along the 10' side for easy attachment to a background support system. The Westcott backdrop will come folded inside a heavy-duty PVC carry case that allows for easy storage and transportation. The clear PVC carry case comes in handy when trying to find a specific color.
Easily change backdrop color by applying a gel. A gel is a colored sheet of heat-resistant plastic that fits overtop of a background light. Light colored backdrops can be transformed into literally any color giving your backdrop endless amounts of possibilities.
Ideal for photographers that work with pets, sports teams or children, Westcott washable backdrops are machine washable. Tumble dry on low and remove background immediately after drying. Darker colors may fade slightly after multiple washings.
For over 112 years, Westcott has been working with the best fabric mills worldwide. Each backdrop is constructed from 65% cotton/polyester blend muslin.
This background is the perfect pair for anyone doing high-key and low-key lighting. High-key lighting is when the background is twice as bright as the subject and is often used when the background needs to maintain neutral or is outlined and cut out through digital editing. Low-key lighting is when there is a great deal of contrast from the low-key and high-key areas providing a more dramatic result.
The 10' x 12' size makes this background ideal for headshots, couples and full body shots.
