Here is a description of what is shown in the above video:
How to create beautiful portable Photography Backdrops Inexpensively and Easily.
Video opens on black screen with the website www.decorativeceilingtiles.net written in the center. Cut to scene showing a black and silver backdrop in the center, with a lamp and other photography equipment on the left, and a door leading out of the room on the right. Center screen shows previous website repeated. Back to black screen with title "Easy Sets for today's Photography" under which the website is written once more.
A gold colored backdrop is now shown on the floor. A voice explains that the video will show how to make a new background with 4 different styles of tiles which come from decorativeceilingtiles.net. The voice says there are 2 4x8ft insulating tiles from Home Depot, and the tiles on the right side are already glued down, but the left side remains to be glued. One tile from the left is removed by a person outside the screenshot. The man points out where the two panels are taped together to make the backdrop sturdy. He proceeds to flip the tile over and explain that Liquid Nails (available at Lowe’s, Home Depot, or Wal-Mart at approx. $1.77) will be used to stick the tile to the panel. The man proceeds to apply glue using a glue gun all over the back of the tile in no specific pattern and says that one tube of Liquid Nails will be enough for 3 tiles.
Camera backs up to show the narrator, who then flips the tile over and sticks it to the panel, lining up the edges carefully. He then repeats the process with the second and then the third tile, pausing on the third one to get a fresh tube of adhesive. He explains that he usually puts glue only in the middle of the tile, but it's OK to put some on the edges as well. If a tile should come loose, simply add more Liquid Nails and put the tile back into place. Warning: don't put your knees or stand on the panel it will break. While reloading his glue gun, the narrator shows the empty gun adding that it costs around $2.00 at Home Depot or Wal-Mart. Once the tube of adhesive is placed in the gun, the man shows how to cut off the tip using a pair of scissors, and to use a pencil to make a hole inside the sealed dispenser to allow the glue to come out. Having added the glue to the third tile, he lifts it up to show this one has a 3-D shape, explaining that it is only necessary to put glue to the parts of the tile which will come into direct contact with the panel. If you have a bigger studio, it's better to do the work outside, he explains. The adhesive, he adds as he starts work on the fourth tile, will wash off with soap and water if you happen to get any on your hands. He repeats that it is only necessary to put glue on the parts of the tile which will touch the foam panel. While working on the fifth tile, he explains that this is the last one he will demonstrate on the video, as he carefully places the glue on the bottom side of the tile, making sure to use the last of his tube of Liquid Nails.
The narrator explains that some photographers prefer to remove the plastic covering from the foam panel before sticking the tiles, which is OK, although he usually leaves it on. He adds that the Liquid Nails adhesive will eat through the plastic cover as well as some of the Styrofoam, but not to worry, because this will not be visible once the backdrop is finished. Once finished with the last tile, the narrator instructs the cameraman to back up so the completed backdrop can be seen. He reiterates that he has used 4 different tiles, and that you can design it any way you want to. Camera comes in to show a closer view of each different type of tile individually. The narrator says he usually lets the glue set for about a day. Camera moves to the right of the room, showing another completed backdrop, this one in silver and black made in the same style as the one shown previously.
Cut to black screen, same as the first scene, with the website Decorative Ceiling Tiles .net written in white lettering in center screen, and the title comes back a few seconds later, above the website: "Easy Sets for today's Photography"
