What wood is used for backdrops?
I chose to use pine because this wood is light-colored and easy to work with. You can either leave it as is and have a nice light wood background or add a bit of wood stain to create a barn wood background. It’s also lightweight. Once the backdrop is finished it will be easy to move around.
What is the best material for a backdrop?
The best fabrics for photo backdrops include canvas and muslin. Canvas is good for adding texture and muslin is lighter. A cotton-polyester blend or a fleece-like matte fabric can also work well. Cotton-polyester combinations are very flexible, and fleece-like matte fabrics make good green screens.

What can I use for a black backdrop?
Many use muslin, since it’s relatively cheap per yard, but you can also try velvet (way more expensive), fleece, or duvetyne (“commando cloth”) — or, you know, black bedsheets might work if you light it right. Make sure that your backdrop is free of creases and wrinkles before and after you hang it.
Can I use a sheet for a backdrop?
Bed sheets work perfectly fine for backdrops. Just be smart about placement, since they’re thin and can allow backlighting (such as a window) to pass through. Otherwise, they’re pretty much the same as using a muslin. A bed sheet and some cheap clamps from home depot are the ideal cheap setup.
