Doctor Invents Backdrop Tool for Taking Better Flat Lay Photos
Medium Photo Boards, selected as one of 2017 “Best Gifts for Photographers” is the brainchild of a busy Millennial doctor finishing a grueling residency program. The idea for Medium Photo Boards occurred while browsing comments on Pinterest during a rare break in her schedule. www.mediumphotoboards.com
Medium Photo Boards are the first-of-its-kind, ORIGINAL flat lay photography backdrop board available in the USA. Each surface is a high-resolution image created for ultra-close up product photography.
“The irony is that Mandy is an amazing doctor but a terrible Millennial,” jokes Medium Director of Marketing, Laura Bartlett, “She really should be required to turn in her ‘Millennial Card’ – it was only out of necessity that she created her first Instagram profile and reactivated her Facebook account- and both were for Medium Photo Boards,” laughs Bartlett.
A Disruptive Photography Solution – Ditch the D.I.Y.Prior to Medium Photo Boards, photographers, food bloggers, Etsy sellers, and influencers had to either create their own backdrop from watching YouTube tutorials – the results varied depending on how skilled the photographer was at Arts and Crafts – otherwise, they relied on vinyl or paper backdrops which were prone to wrinkling, bending, or tearing. Medium Photo Boards are a unique “Done-For-You,” solution that perfectly “clone” natural surfaces. It’s virtually impossible to distinguish Medium Photo Boards from their real surface counterparts.
Professional Photography Tool“Medium Photo Boards are any photographer’s best kept secret.” “Interesting backdrops transform ordinary food pics to ‘Food Porn’ status.” “I also have a small studio, so I appreciate how lightweight they are!” “They are easy to use and quickly stow away while I’m changing set ups,” says Dallas Photographer, Jami Clayman.
Medium Photo Boards are photo-realistic, 1:1 replica images mounted on 28 x 22 inch PVC foam board in the following “cloned” surfaces: Rustic Wood, Marble, Slate, Shiplap, and Wool. One of the huge benefits of the boards is that they are rigid and self-leveling, therefore, it is possible to shoot product photos virtually anywhere there is good source of light.
Each 28 x 22 inch photo backdrop board is under $50 and can be purchased on the company website or on Amazon beginning December 1st – just in time for holiday shopping. www.mediumphotoboards.com
