Photography ~ A Sweep Stand

Have you ever heard of a sweep stand?

For me, a sweep stand is a gorgeous thing. Since when I got it, my life has been one sunny, happy place. It is one of my most favorite photography tools.

I used it to create a background in all the pictures that you can see in the photo-mix above.

This is what my sweep stand looks like ‘naked’.

It actually is a plastic background support stand – priceless help if you take tabletop shots of small items.

And even more priceless help if you dream of uniform backgrounds for your subjects.

Which people like me, also known as addicted food and crafts bloggers, often do.

The sweep comes with a generous selection of different colored paper for creating a smooth background without a visible corner or fold.

I sometimes use bright white fabric instead of paper. With a little ironing from time to time, that can forever stay fold-less.

Using the sweep is really easy. You just fold out support stand on the back and choose the paper color. Then you attach the paper to the background clips.

    I’m not sure how I stumbled onto your site, but I’m sure glad I did. I have been looking for a small table top stand without breaking the bank, this one really fits the bill, both ways. I just ordered it on eBay for $20.00, I’m a wand maker and also make ritual tools so it will be in continuous use photographing my products to post online.

    Thanks for the heads up.
