Light & Airy

"I LOVE my Poppy Bee Surfaces. Unlike other similar backdrops, Poppy Bee Surfaces have actual texture, making them look and feel real and incredibly beautiful. They have a wonderful matte finish too. Highly recommended."

Kimberly Espinel, The Little Plantation

"Poppy Bee is one of my go-to suppliers for roll-up surfaces. They are perfectly matte and photograph well. I don’t have to worry about glare or texture issues. Their grey and brown surfaces are some of my favourites in my collection. Even with the duties I pay to ship to another country, the cost is worth the quality."

Rachel Korinek, Two Loves Studio

“I love my Poppy Bee Surfaces! They look so realistic and add beautiful texture to images.”

Alanna Taylor-Tobin, The Bojon Gourmet

"OMG, I LOVE THESE SO MUCH!!!! As a surface or a backdrop, they shoot SO WELL!"

Matt Armendariz Photography

"Poppy Bee Surfaces should be part of every food photographer arsenal. They are great quality and work amazingly well with both natural light as well as artificial light. They are matte and don't have a shine. They also work great with liquids and drips."

Julia Konovalova, Imagelicious

“Your backgrounds are the best I’ve come across of any printed products. The finish is impeccable, no glare, true to color and easy to handle.”

Sam, Hanna Photo

“Poppy Bee Surfaces are game changers for our creative industry. They are portable, lightweight, sturdy, affordable, super matte, and photograph beautifully. These surfaces provide the perfect solution for any art director, stylist, or photographer.”

Korena, Art Director & Photographer

"I have several Poppy Bee Surfaces backdrops in my collection and they're my favorite! The high quality and realistic texture in these beautiful backdrops will bring your photos to the next level. "

Vy Tran, Beyond Sweet & Savory

"Light, portable, dynamic and durable photo surfaces. Truly, works of art. I have now purchased MANY as I look to downsize my (now unnecessary collection of) rusted metals and heavy marble slabs. I cannot recommend Poppy Bee Surfaces enough!"

Food photography backdrops | SIMA-LAND.



Are you an aspiring food photographer? Just love to cook and want to capture the results beautifully? In any case, backgrounds for pictures will be needed. Professionals use handmade backs, but they are heavy and cost a lot. It is unprofitable for amateurs and beginners to buy such. But you can use an alternative - printed photophones. Which of them will be needed for stylish shots, we tell in today's material. nine0003

According to experienced food photographers, 3 reversible backs are enough to get started. So you get 6 surfaces with different textures and shades. Don't make the mistake of choosing overly bright backgrounds right away. They are attractive, but working with them is more difficult, so at first it is better to build a base. Here are some backs that can be attributed to it.

Light gray texture

White is considered to be the universal background for photographs. But in food photography courses, teachers clearly explain why gray is the best option. nine0003

To work with it, you do not need to be able to adjust the white balance and know how to get rid of pink and blue tones in the frames. It is much easier to process such photos.

If you want to experiment with white, practice on gray first and gain experience.

Light wood

This option assumes that you can choose both a warm and a cold shade of wood - depending on your desire. But for those who do not tolerate yellowness in the pictures, we advise you to look for cold and borderline tones. With some backdrops in warm colors, sometimes you have to fiddle to correct the color. nine0003

However, in any case, a light wooden background is a great solution: it matches perfectly with modern tableware and is suitable for atmospheric photographs in the spirit of Kinfolk magazine.

Dark wood

This is a must have if you want to make money from food photography. Cafes and restaurants often order dishes to be photographed against this background, so it is important to learn how to work with it.

If food photography is a hobby for you, then having such a backdrop is optional, but desirable. It will help you get more beautiful pictures. nine0003

When choosing a background, pay attention to natural shades, such as chocolate nuts, cherries. Photos with them are natural and vibrant.

Dark texture

The most popular background in this category is black and gray concrete. But other surfaces of a deep dark shade will do.

The magic of such backdrops is that they do not draw attention away from the dishes and at the same time add presentability to the pictures. Photos with these substrates can often be seen on the menu of expensive restaurants

Tip: Use this backdrop in natural light or with a reflector. In bright artificial light, it can glare. This is a feature of all dark backdrops.

Fancy texture

This option is for when you want to take creative and vibrant pictures.

The format of the substrate can be very different. It can be an imitation of fabric, a fantasy print, or just a plain backdrop. With what you will create - it's up to you. nine0003

Look for more backgrounds and inspiration for food shots in a special section. Good luck!
