This post is about photography mats. To me, these were a bit of an odd choice. I had no idea what I was getting myself into. But, I had to try.
The mats are the thin, stiff, protective sheets that you wear while you photograph your subject. They’re also used to protect your phone, cameras, and other devices from scratches and damage. What’s cool about these mats is that they look like they’d be a natural fit for photography. They’re made of fabric, but have a rubber backing.
The idea is that a person can use these mats to protect their equipment from scratches and other damage, and then put them over their subject while they photograph them. The mats are designed for people with short arms, because holding a camera in one hand would be nearly impossible. The rubber backing is so thin that the mats can be used with almost any camera or smartphone. Also, they look good in any lighting condition.
The idea is pretty self-explanatory. But there’s one thing that’s worth mentioning: the mats are available in a few different sizes, colors, and materials.
The mats could be used for any photography situation, be it for portraits, still life, landscape, or any other type of photography. It’s very versatile, and the materials are excellent.
As far as I can tell, this kind of mats have never been used before, so it’ll be interesting to see how they perform in different environments. I just hope they’re not as heavy as the mats that are used in video games or that you get in cell phones.
This is not to say that mats are not useful. They do help the photographer achieve a certain type of composition, and they can be used as a backup, or even a replacement for heavier camera equipment. But mats are not the main reason I buy a camera.
Camera companies and photographers love mats because they can add some style to a photo, and I appreciate that. But they’re not the only reason. Because they’re not the only way to add style to a photo, they also have more uses than mats do, including to create something aesthetically pleasing from the photograph itself. The most important thing to consider when choosing a mat is that they should not be too heavy.
I know what you’re thinking: “But I like the style of the photo. The composition, lighting, and colors are great. Plus there’s no way I would still like the photo if it were just a mat.” Well, yes, but not because you think a mat is just a mat. There are many other ways you can add style to your photo that don’t require a mat.
First, a mat is a simple but effective way to add a decorative touch to your photos. They can be made out of anything from foam to metal. A mat is a simple way to add a little something to your photos, a style, an accent. Of course, you can also use a mat to add some definition to a shot by allowing you to place your camera on the mat. A mat is a good way to add a little visual interest to your photos, a little visual emphasis.
