There are always occasions when you need to position a subject against a desired background, whether that be a simple muslin cloth or a green screen. To ensure that your backdrop looks clean, uniform, and genuine, you should hang it up using a drop stand, which generally consists of a crossbar and two anchor legs. These frames are typically adjustable, so you can set them up to the proper dimensions, but not every model is built equally. Some frames can be quite flimsy and require additional support (sandbags are commonly used), but a top-quality one will stand on its own. Our picks will help you find the best one for your studio or location.
