Starting a photography business can be a substantial investment. Between the camera equipment, lighting, and backdrops, it can feel like too much. However, you may not need to acquire everything at once. Keep reading to find out what these enthusiasts recommend you buy to get started in photography.
As a new photographer, you are likely looking to find the most affordable options allowing for maximum opportunities to create various looks. All you need are three basic, seamless backdrops. Some people love seamless paper, and some like to go with canvas fabrics. Both are fine as long as it works with your space and equipment. Select a pure white, dark grey, and neutral beige or mocha shade. These three color options, along with different lighting setups, will give you a solid inventory to shoot anything from corporate headshots to creating beautiful creative portrait photography.
The best investment for any new photographers would be a basic backdrop stand and one or two rolls of Savage seamless paper. The wider-size rolls are the best because you can do so much more with them. My favorite colors are thunder grey, super white, and chestnut. You can always play around with the color in the post if you want a bigger variety.
