We’ve featured photographer Nick Fancher‘s pegboard backdrop experiments a couple of times now (see here and here), and each time the setup gets fleshed out a bit more. Yesterday, Fancher released the above time-lapse video that offers a behind-the-scenes look at how he constructed his “white room” inside his tiny basement (the ceiling is just 7-feet-hight).
The whole build will cost you around $ 80, or a little more if you’d like to add a smoke machine for beams of light rather than glowing spots of light. Fancher purchased 2 sheets of 4×8-foot white pegboard to make the backdrop for around $ 36, and 4 sheets of 4×8-foot glossy white hardboard to make the floor and ceiling for around $ 48.
Here are some of the resulting dancer portraits from the shoot seen in the video:
Another example of a look you can achieve using a pegboard backdrop:
Someone needs to try this same concept with more sides built out of pegboard. We’re curious as to what the resulting beams of light would look like if you filled the space with smoke.
