    I’m having a hard time choosing between back in black and vintage II. They are all awesome but if I could buy one right now, it’d probably be one of those two. I’d say it be the vintage II.

    Ugh… I’ve been looking at the Soho for months now! Love it! And I found a red velvet wing back chair at Goodwill that would look soooooo gorgeous with it!

    Wow, this is the first time I visted the ‘Drop it modern” site. I will be going back for sure! I love the Vixen backdrop and would LOVE to have it.

  5. 45


    I love the Back in Black backdrop, but there are quite a few that I would LOOOVE to have! I think the Back in Black looks great in a color image or a black and white image.

  6. 78


    WOW, what a TERRIFIC contest! Drop it is so cool to share things like this with us!! Either the Back in Black or the Soho attract me as my current favorites, although just before Christmas they had a “coming soon” that was a bright pink. I was pretty excited about that, too!

  7. 95


    Yay–so great to find out about Drop It Modern. I usually go to Urban Outfitters and buy the curtains for my backdrop :) I love the Poppy design.. I also a picture of a backdrop in Yellow and Black only on the homepage but didn’t see it the shopping gallery. Also just tweeted & updated FB stat :)

    My favorite is the Vintage II, love the browns! And the Poppy would be so cool for spring! I just blogged it so that’s two for me.

    WOW – picking one, hardly a possibility! They all could pull off so many different moods, personalities, and situations. I’d love to try one of these out as I travel on location and don’t do a lot of studio – great price for something that can travel easy!

  11. 118


    I had never even heard about this place before! The backdrops are awesome!

    My favorite, though it was a hard choice, is the Surf Rider. It was between that one and the Vixen.

  12. 136

    Robin says

    Wow…would I love one of these! I think “Soho” is still my all-time favorite…but that’s subject to change!!

  13. 139


    It is so hard to choose a favorite, because they are all amazing! I have been scouring fabric stores looking for something like this, thank you so much for sharing Drop It Modern with us!!

    OK if I have to choose, I’ll go with Soho because 1) it matches the backdrop on my website and 2) it matches one of my shoot sac covers and 3) it would be super sweet for my photo booth at weddings and so many other things!

    I love Sea Horse – I have nothing like it and would love to see the blue of my little boys eyes in front of it :)

    stephanie says

    I don’t know if I could pick just one, they are all spectacular! Love Sea Horse a lot, but then again I love them all!!!!

  16. 159


    How do I pick just one? They are all fabulous!! My top three are Soho, Sea Horse, and Vintage II. If I HAD to pick just one… it might be Soho! I want them all! Thanks Jodi!

    Jamie Shortt says

    Hey there, I can’t decide on a favourite between the Soho and the Back in Black. I think the black is in the lead, though, great contest.

    Staci Brock says

    Vintage is what first came to mind…but then I saw that Poppy…and retro/modern seems to be catching my eye more and more lately!

  19. 182


    Favourite? I LOVE THEM ALL!! <3 <3 <3

    But if I had to choose…Back in Black.
    But my daughter would want Poppy, and I have to keep her happy.

    I love the Soho and vintage. Also the coming soon Poppy would be so fun to work with. This would be perfect to add some new pop to my photos!

  21. 208


    Oh my gosh!! I love your blog. I didn’t know about this place! Have been looking for some different backdrop options. Thanks so much! My fav is “Vintage II” and I CAN’T WAIT to see what else they will come up with. Love these!!!

    I love surf rider, after 2 girls I now have a 9mo old boy and another on the way! I’m learning how to retrain myself to look for boy patterns, colors.

  23. 224


    hi! I LOVE these backdrops- all of them! but I would say Back in Black is my most favorite because it’s the most versatile, then swanky because it’s so fun, fresh and girlie, then vintage II because of it’s sophistication. OK, so I gave 3 favs- wish I had unlimited funds so I could buy them all with no guilt :)

  24. 244


    I love the vintage backdrop! <3 I hope to win to be able to use the backdrop at my best friend's wedding for a photo booth and then to start my very first studio set up from home!

  25. 248


    This contest is perfect timing – my best friend is getting married and we need a backdrop for her photo booth & I’ve been dreaming of starting my first at home studio!
    (Sorry if I posted twice – it wasn’t going through before.)

    I love the background “vixen”. Love the damask and the color. I’ll also share it on twitter.

    It’s so hardto choose! I think Vintage II is my favorite because of it’s versatility. I’d be able to use it for boys and girls as well as adults.

  30. 278


    I L-O-V-E LOVE Soho!! Not only is it my favorite place in the world but it’s an awesome color combo!! Add a gorgeous red something in front of it and you get my favorite color combination! It also makes me think of toile which is one of my first loves in life =)

    Danielle says

    I LOVE the poppy background, but most of them are amazing. Thanks for letting use know about the great resource.

    Alanna says

    There are a lot of beautiful choices… I think I would use SOHO the most. Really Classic! Thank you for the chance.

  33. 283


    Ok so can you say “every single one” as a valid entry! I am loving the Vixen backdrop…it would be awesome for Valentine photos…but I am also in love with the Back N Black!

  34. 295


    I am torn. I really like the Vintage II but my heart goes pitter patter for the Soho! So I think SOHO. Love these from afar wish I could have one.

    Chelsea Fitch says

    i posted an after photo from a wedding i just finished on the MCP flickr group it is of the bride’s bouquet and rings.

  36. 322


    The Drop It Modern website is down right now so I can’t say which one I like the best. From what I’ve seen, probably the green and blue damask or the white and black damask one. Thanks!

    Shelly Laessig says

    Tough tough call to just pick one! I think I’d go with Poppy or Back in Black for different reasons.

    Diane Hazelwood Stewart says

  39. 368

    Michele G says

    Im so torn between Vixen & Back in Black, but for how Im shooting now, I think the best for me would be the black.

  43. 399

    Robin says

    I love them all but I’d say back in black is my favorite. It’s subtle but still makes a statement.

    I love Soho – I used it for a boudoir shoot last weekend and it was a huge hit with my clients. I’m sure I could find a new favourite with a gift certificate, though!

    I LOVE the Back in Black! Now can I be the lucky winner and have one?! Pretty please? It’s so sophisticated. I think it can add a touch of class to any photo. Love it!!

  53. 575


    I LOVE the vixen one. I would freak out if I won this. I have been using makeshift fabric for backdrops trying to get the same effect. It’s just not workin. So here is hopin’! I shared this on my facebook and uploaded a picture I worked on with the actions from Magic Bag :p)

  54. 587


    Gosh, I LOVE several of their backdrops, makes it hard to choose a favorite! But I’d have to say Back in Black is my favorite! And Thanks for all the great tips and blog posts you share here!

    I love, love, love the “Poppy” background! I would love to photograph a puppy dog in front of it! More specifically my blue eyed puppy girl Topaz. 😉

  58. 622


    My favorite is the Vintage II backdrop. I think it would work great for a big variety of photos and I love how brown goes with everyone’s skin tones and most everyone’s clothing.

  59. 623


    I LOVE the Back in Black , Vintage II , and Seahorse (I obviously love the pattern) If I were to choose one specifically I’d probably choose seahorse it is SO refreshing!
