What is a Cyclorama?
A cyclorama, sometimes referred to as a cyc wall, is a curtain or wall background stretched tight in an arc, usually in the back of a stage set or theatre - or photography studio, to create the illusion of unlimited depth.
Cyclorama's became popular in 19th-century German theatre, but a form of the method is still used today. It’s sometimes called a cyc background, cyc wall, or infinity wall. This walled background incorporates one or more curved surfaces. They’re used to make it look like there’s no end. All corners are seamless. If done well, it’s impossible to tell where the floor ends and the wall begins.
In still photography or video production, this helps make your background almost ‘disappear,’ leaving a ton of possibilities for lighting.
What can I use a Cyclorama for?
Because a cyclorama provides very smooth background, it is very easy for a photographer or videographer to create gradient lighting, or to completely remove the background.
Lighting can be controlled so the background appear light or dark. When lit evenly, the smooth surface, even as it goes around the corner of a studio, can provide an “infinity effect” — an endless space behind the subject matter.
Cyc-wall can be used for e-commerce, catalogue, fashion or any other style of photography. Because of its apparent infinite depth, it helps to drag attention to the model or product you’re shooting, without distinctive background or wall-floor corners.
