I recently received the mask for the mask series and am now working on the concept for this series of images. I have something in mind and today at work I ran into the perfect addition for the photo: the Lastolite Urban Collapsible. I was already thinking of doing something with different backdrops, maybe even paint one myself, but this looked like a great way to start. It’s collapsible so portable, easy to store, easy to get out etc. These backdrops come in 4 different combinations, each one has two different sides to them. I chose the “Rusty Metal” and “Plaster Wall” version which, I think, will work very well with Collodion.
The size of the backdrop is 150 x 210 cm which is pretty large. Big enough to fill up the wall of my studio intended for this anyway. Looking forward to using them. I hope to be shooting some plates around Easter (days off at work!).
