I was finally able to get my hand on a Savage Canvas backdrop.
In the past year I’ve used backdrops from 2 other companies, for the purpose of this blog, I won’t disclose their names but I will say this they were much more expensive in comparison to Savage.
In comparison to the other canvas backdrops that I’ve used, they were shipped as canvas without any attachments. To properly use them I needed a backdrop supper or to get a lightweight pipe so that I could clamp back drop to it. Savage came with lightweight pipe attached and all I needed was a Mathews clamp and a c-stand and I was ready to shoot. It also came with wooden stick that is a perfect counter weight to make sure my backdrop hangs properly. When I’m looking for a canvas backdrop, I’m not looking for perfection, I am looking for texture, good color and an easy to hang backdrop. With regards to the Savage backdrop, that is exactly what I received. My only drawback is that the color is slightly off from what you see on their website versus what you get when it is shipped. It’s slightly darker, however, it is not that big of a deal since it can be easy adjusted in post if needed.
In conclusion, Savage canvas backdrops are great for portrait photography, they are well priced and easy to set up. I definitely recommend this product, and I will be purchasing more for myself.
