Product Details

The subtle contrast between black and charcoal creates a classic, yet versatile setting for your portraits.
Westcott's Modern Vintage backdrop line modernizes timeless designs for beautiful portraiture.

Change the look and feel of these amazing backdrops through simple lighting techniques. High-key lighting results in highly-visible patterns and vibrancy. Low-key lighting mutes the background for a more subtle appearance. Create a backdrop vignette with a backdrop light for a dramatic shot.

Reflection free.
Unlike many embossed fabrics, Westcott has developed a system to remove unwanted reflections from this process leaving the background with a matte finish. This matte finish ensures perfect results when lighting the backdrop. Reflections can cause difficulty in lighting the backdrop, loss of background detail and unwanted highlights.

Quality fabrics.
Westcott has worked with the best fabric mills worldwide for 115 years. These fabrics are custom produced to represent the highest quality available. Patterns are embossed in thick velour to ensure years of quality.

No need to worry about removing seams during post-production editing. All of Westcott's backdrops are seamless to ensure professional results.

Custom patterns.
Modern Vintage patterns are developed exclusively by Westcott. These prints are custom-designed to be large in size. This results in the pattern being more visible to the camera and size proportionate to the subject(s) being photographed.

The extras.
All Modern Vintage backdrops include a free lint cleaning cloth specifically designed to quickly and easily remove unwanted lint. These backdrops are also manufactured with a standard pole pocket for effortless hanging on an industry-standard backdrop support system.

Wrinkle resistant.
Modern Vintage backdrops are designed on carefully chosen wrinkle-resistant fabric. Simply hang your backdrop using the pole pocket. The weight of the fabric will pull most unwanted wrinkles out. If any remaining wrinkles exist, simply steam the backside of the background be sure to not over moisten or "overheat" the embossed velour.
