  34. I use the Canary 9×9 and have couples who ask specifically for that backdrop because they love the color and energy of it. It’s perfect for a photo booth and by far the most popular backdrop that I have. The new red Gypsy line looks like it could do the same and would be one I’d love to add to my collection!

Love the name, love the pattern, love the colors… it’s perfect!!

  40. I am all about “the Gypsy”.. mad luv for that popping fun color!

  41. I adore your new Gypsy!! But I have been eyeing the Vintage for a while for my backdrop that I set up at weddings for the guests to have fun with.

  42. I love the gypsy background, I would totally see it being perfect for my wedding!

  43. I LOVE the Sea Horse back drop!!

  44. Gradient would have to be my fav and then Wood Grain.

  45. I have almost all of the backdrop and love them! Would love to win the new Black Keys! I just ordered the Gypsy and Greydiant yesterday and am excited to try them out!

  62. Back in black is a neat looking backdrop. I’d mostly like to win the $100 borrow lenses certificate. I’ve been using them a lot recently…

  63. LOVE Sea Horse and Gypsy!!

  64. I love, love, love these and am so looking forward to putting one in our photobooth at our wedding in 100 days EXACTLY. I am in love with Surf Rider and want to make blankets out of it and wrap myself in it every day. Since I haven’t yet found my something blue for my wedding AND especially since the colors for our beachside wedding are sea green, teal, and gray, Sea Horse is my absolute favorite. So beautiful, Drop it MODERN!

  65. greydient! id love to drape the babies nursery in it too!

  66. Tough call! Although I usually do not pick favorites (especially from DIM as ALL of their products are fab!!!) I very much adore the new Black Keys. I have desired a DIM backdrop for the loooongest time and would be thrilled to win Woodgrain. Happy Happy Birthday Junebug!!!!

  67. I’m lovin’ that Greydiant. Love the way it looks with that shallow DOF!

  68. I absolutely LOVE the Black on Black design and am repeatedly stunned at how well it photographs! Of the choices … ????? ???? ???????? ????? ????. ???? ?????? ? ???????? ??????? ???????. which translates too, “The Gypsy spirit courses through me. Long live color.”

  69. I’m loving the new Greydient backdrop. I think it would be perfect for a wedding photobooth. I could also see myself using the heck out of the new Gypsy backdrop.

  82. I love the *SOHO* design, and that woodgrain has an awesome vintage vibe too it.

  83. I like the GREYDIENT by far the best and out of the three mentioned SEA HORSE is my favorite!

  84. I have to chime in with the others here and say that the Greydiant backdrop is very nice. Simple, effective, and lets the models really pop. I think I will make my preference for the “borrowed” prize, since the others are pretty much a sure thing anyway.

  85. I love love love the Vintage & Mustard Seed backdrops!!! I would love love love to win the new Sea Horse backdrop!! I am sure I could find a use for all of the prizes offered though!! Lens rentals are always a win! Fun colorful backdrops are always a win! All wins!! 🙂 Thank you!

  86. Greydient is my favorite one! Woodgrain is a close second and the Sea Horse would be the next. They are all fashionably awesome!

  87. I’m all about the $100 gift certificate. Thanks for the generosity!

  88. The something blue Sea Horse design is my favorite. Something about it brings back memories of childhood, maybe I had a wallpaper pattern like it or something. At any rate, I find it beautiful and serene.

  89. OMG- I LOVE all of these! How does one choose just ONE!!! I’d probably have to go with Seahorse…I could use it for both adults and kids. (But myfavorites are Poppy and Black Keys!!!) Thanks for such a great giveaway!!!

  90. My persona favorite is the Back in Black backdrop. It’s very elegant yet sexy at the same time. The uses for this backdrop are limitless. From an edgy rock photo shoot to a beautiful wedding, this is a backdrop that can fit in every occasion. I would like to enter for the woodgrain backdrop. As I feel it is somewhat like the Back in Black and can be used for many occasions. This is one backdrop that will make my pictures pop.

  91. I love the seahorse design, I can envision so many fun things with that! Frankly, I”d love to win the borrowlenses gift cert because I use them all the time, but the backdrops are pretty tempting!

  92. My favorite design on the site is SOHO. As for the giveaway, the seahorse backdrop is great, I’d love to bring that home!

  95. My favs from the site are wonderland (hard to find an elegant white background that isn’t boring!) and poppy (that green!) Out of these I would have to choose sea horse. I’m shooting a friend’s wedding and I know she would love those colors with her scheme. I can’t say enough good things about borrowlenses, though. I’ve used them 3 or 4 times now for speciality lenses.

  96. Love love love the gypsy backdrop!! But if I could win….I’d have to go with the $100 from borrow lenses!!

  97. It’s so hard to pick just one, but love the classic “Sea Horse” backdrop for sure!! And I already love borrowlenses too!

  98. I like them all, especially the Sea Horse backdrop. But I think if I won, I’d go for the Gypsy backdrop because it is so unlike anything else I have.
