Who'da Thunkit Backdrop: Roofing Panels

Photographers Joe Daylor and Joe Stern can get that industrial look any time they want, after creating a sectional background from inexpensive plastic roofing panels and some spray paint.

Honestly, without good light, this stuff would probably look pretty goofy. But the 3-d quality of this stuff makes it fairly versatile as a backdrop, depending on how it is lit. And if you can control both your light and your background in any location, you are pretty much good to go.

Thanks for the idea, guys. When I think Home Depot backdrops, I almost never make it past the paint aisle. Learn something new every day.
