It is a common practice in the old days for most family to have their family photos taken in the photo studio or photo salon. Those days not many people can afford to own a camera and whenever they want to have a photo of a special event taken, they will have it done in a photo studio.
Can you remember seeing photos of naked babies lying on their stomach on table tops in homes and photos studios? If the photos were taken in photo studio, you will notice in the background some photography backdrops for newborn & children. I am sure some of you have your photos taken in the same manner and when you grew up and were shy of these naked baby photos, you hid them away from your friends and relatives.
Nowadays we seldom go to photo studios to have our photos taken. We only do so when we need to take standard sized photos for processing legal documents like for example, to apply for passport, national identity card or driving license, etc. When you go to have your photos taken, you will notice that the backdrop behind you will be a plain coloured backdrop. And if you are there for your wedding photos or someone else wedding photos, you will notice that they change the backdrops every now and then to create different background. The photo studio arranged for wedding photo backdrops set for pictures. Some of them look so natural to make it look like the photos were taken in the park or garden.
Gone were the days when photography backdrops were plain and boring. Nowadays, the backdrops are designed for different occasions and to suit individual’s preferences. There seems to be a backdrop to meet everyone’s taste. To mention a few, there are photography backdrops for weddings, children, family, Christmas, Easter, etc.
