Backdrop rollers – saving space and my sanity!

Since gaining some studio space I decided to invest in backdrop rollers as a permanent fixture. And wow, what an amazing piece of kit!

As useful as my portable backdrop stands are the tripod legs take up too much room, can be tripped over and can only display one backdrop at a time. I bought a set of brackets which can hold three backdrops at any one time, yup three!

Once the brackets were positioned on the far wall of my studio I purchased three lengths of 2.5″ pvc piping, cut them to length and used them to connect the brackets together.

My backdrops are now raised and lowered by pulleys and during times when they’re not in use I store a few of backdrops on the rollers to keep them out of the way and crease free.

Displaying a backdrop (and putting it away) now takes seconds! Definitely one of my best buys.
