Lightweight Designs Built for Portability
Review by Gilmar Smith
Duo Boards are V-Flat World’s innovative, new portable products targeted to food/beverage, still, and product photographers, as well as bloggers, influencers, and videographers. The boards are made from multilayered PVC, and they’re available in 10 different double-sided UHD printed finishes, such as Vintage Oak/Ink Hardwood, Royal Marble/Rose Marble, and Wisp Tile/Pebble Tile. Two different sizes are available: 24×24″ and 30×40″ for $69.95 and $99.95, respectively.
They come with L-bracket legs in case you want to set up two boards together (one as the base and one as the background), and a microfiber towel to clean them.
For this review, I got my hands on Iced Concrete/Midnight Cement XL and the Ocean Slate/Black Slate XL, and used the L-bracket to mount them together. I love that I can mix and match all the designs by using the included L-bracket.
It took me a little while to get the boards in the bracket, but when I did, I knew they were not falling out! Then I grabbed a vintage scale and searched my fridge for props.
The Duo Boards are very sturdy, lightweight, and water-resistant. (I know this because I accidentally spilled water that I was using to mist the tomatoes: I just wiped the boards with a towel, and it was like nothing happened!)
The boards photograph beautifully, and I can see myself using them on my personal branding sessions to create customized flatlays for my clients. They’re an excellent tool to add to your photography arsenal. ■
