Portable Photo Background Sweep (3d-printed)
« on: April 06, 2020, 10:15:53 PM »
Here's a very useful thing for still-life photography: a pair of clamps which will hold a piece of paper or card to create a seamless background sweep.





The files are available free from https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:3638751

With this, you can quickly and easily swap out different colours, gradients, background images and what-not.

You will need access to a 3d printer though.

I just purchased a standing tripod with a t brace and clips to hold my back grounds.   That looks useful and a lot more compact.

Here's mine, fresh off the printer and loaded with the nearest sheet of card I had to hand.

Thank you, printed it and made a quick background on a A3 paper. Very effective.

Hint: don't use colorful red-ish colors for the background, it blow the white balance and make the minis like martian people. Must now redo the drawing with more consensual colors.

Cheers
