When I started my adventure with photography I could at best dream of having access to ready-made photographic backgrounds. A few years ago, you had to combine on your own to keep the photos from being monotonous, so I painted the backgrounds myself. I don’t have a knack for artwork, so I was happy to see backgrounds painted by others on the market.
Then it was time for something even better, namely backgrounds printed in a format ideal for culinary photography. I’ve tested some of them over the past 2 years, and I’m glad that the MBackdrops brand has come out and offers us such a good product. Magda Handle’s backgrounds are distinguished above all by printing of great quality. Tiles, boards or stone look like the real thing. I like vinyl for its ease of cleaning, storage, but most of all for its lightness. Mbackdrops’ vinyl backgrounds are stiff, which I found to be an added plus. My studio is small and setting up another tripod to support the backdrop is always a problem. These just need to be placed on a chair slid under the work table.
Author of the blog smuklewidelce.pl, photographer and culinary stylist.
In 2015, she took her first culinary shots. Today they serve as an example for her students and show “how not to take pictures.” She started out knowing nothing about colors, rules of composition, let alone how to operate a DSLR camera. But standing behind the camera one day she felt that this was it – food photography had become her greatest passion in life – hundreds, even thousands of hours of study had borne fruit. She put everything on the line and became a culinary photographer.
On a daily basis she does photo shoots for many companies and brands, but most of all she shares her knowledge and passion with others – in her courses she shows that you can be a great stylist. Not when you have expensive equipment, lots of accessories and your own studio, but when you have a heart for it and layers of patience.
For me, the MBackdrops brand is an example of how having sensitivity and attentiveness creates extraordinary things. Producing backgrounds from elements of the reality around us is brilliant in its simplicity, and shows that there are no limitations in photography – as long as you don’t create them in your head. Working with MBackdrops to create my own collection of backgrounds will keep my attentiveness working at top speed to deliver unique designs that will complement and inspire many photographs.

For many years he has been conducting individual and group trainings, where he shows how to become a real photographer from an amateur and that it is not so complicated at all.
Some form of art has always accompanied her life, and a few years ago she began painting photographic backgrounds. First for their own use, and later also for others. Her hand-painted backgrounds can be purchased to order, but as she says: “It has always been my dream to make my designs available to a wider range of photographers in print. I’m overjoyed that MBackdrops makes this possible for me.”
