Announcing a new partnership between MilkmanStudio Productions and backdrop specialists extraordinaire- drop it MODERN!!! We’re all about teaming up with companies that help photographers really stretch their creativity and get outta that “box”! This is definitely one of those products!
We had the pleasure of being introduced to DIM @ the PDN PhotoPlus Expo in October in NYC. Kelli Avila has been sooo helpful in this new collaboration in helping Joao and me choose the best backdrops for our editorial, advertising, portrait and fine art needs- which is a new market for the company- and we are sooo excited to get shooting.
I cannot stress the quality of the backdrops- they’re a very heavy grade canvas (see detail pic below) with velvet burnout accents. They are available in a variety of sizes: 4.5ft X 6, 9 or 12ft; 9ft x 9ft and 9ft x12ft. The best part: They fold or roll up for VERY convenient packing/transporting, and are dry-cleanable- NO MORE FOOTPRINTS!
Each print is limited edition- meaning they’re seasonal- and hand designed by Breanne Schaap. The new line will also be priced at 40% less than the 2008 line, with backdrops starting as low as $100.00! Each backdrop is equipped with a 2.5” diameter loop at the top and bottom in order to put a support system in place. They’re worth the investment- and let’s face it: ECO FRIENDLY! Why use paper that tears, and has to be tossed in the recycle bin at the end of the day?
Here’s the swatches for the backdrops we received today:
We were recently featured on the DIM BLOG! Check it out for more of their info. There’s some really creative stuff already shot using the backdrops- we have our work cut out for us! 🙂
Here’s a few more images I took today of one of our “Favorite Things of 2010”:
