For creatives, SnapIt Boards are an easy, affordable product photography solution. Each board is printed at 300 dpi for a photorealistic reproduction of the original background image. For the work I do with products, I chose the Rustic Rainbow and Chuckwagon ($59 on Amazon). With a nice lens and good bokeh, the backdrops look real.
They’re durable and made with a quarter-inch thick PVC foam. The finish is impeccable. You can wipe it clean and it’s non reflective.
What makes the SnapIt boards work are the brackets. They stand a board up and you can mix and match them for one-of-a-kind backdrops. For example, to create a wall and a floor.
I also like the story behind the product.Created by Billie Jean “Mimi” Strahan, also appealing is how portable the boards are. So when it’s not raining in Seattle, I use them outside incorporating natural light. The boards are so realistic looking, it’s impossible to tell that I’m not out on a location instead of just in my backyard.
