For a first Muslin you can't go wrong!
I was hired to shoot a Reunion for the Class of 67. The theme of the night was a "Luau." Well, being on a budget (who isn't?), I was looking for a Backdrop that was fitting, it had to reflect some of the colors of the event. looking for "sea"-esque colors, I was faced with purchasing a muslin priced several times over what I would have liked. then I seen this one. despite the colors that are advertised, these colors blend very well, and their juxtaposition give the illusion of light blues and...View full Review
I was hired to shoot a Reunion for the Class of 67. The theme of the night was a "Luau." Well, being on a budget (who isn't?), I was looking for a Backdrop that was fitting, it had to reflect some of the colors of the event. looking for "sea"-esque colors, I was faced with purchasing a muslin priced several times over what I would have liked. then I seen this one. despite the colors that are advertised, these colors blend very well, and their juxtaposition give the illusion of light blues and greens---plus the pattern of the work, to me, looks like an overhead view of crashing sea foam!!! for my needs, the quality, the dimensions, the price...I was sold!!I feel that this backdrop is very versatile. a good buy for the price. if you are looking for your first backdrop then this line of muslins is a great place to start. [...] cons: 1) I am unsure at the present time just how strong and durable is the hem for the support cross bar. but, having 24' of length means plenty of room for another hem in the future...plus, clamps is always an option. 2) I also have yet to launder or wash the item so I can't speak of the designs longevity, but I have no reason to believe that it may run.

I needed to buy gray backdrop but price, color and size forced me to order this one too. Full 10x24 size as advertised, color is very nice, it can be used for multiple purposes. Color is very close to as displayed on website.
..after a quick wash, and some added color (spray can),,, it is good to go....i have ordered 2 more...
This is a wonderful backdrop for headshots. The pattern blends beautifully in teh background. For the price, it's an exceptional value.
Belle Drape are awesome. I think the color description on this item should be reworded. When the item is described as grey, I am thinking a soft neutral pastel grey. The actual color is beige. Not bad, just not grey. My item still had a return invoice from a previous customer who returned it for the same reason.
First off the background I received is exactly the same as is pictured on the item description. It is a lightweight material which makes it very easily portable, on the other hand an even moderately bright light behind it will show through - this could be both a bonus or a downside depending on how you use it. Of course, increasing your front light(s) will give you more f-stop to reduce or eliminate a backlight problem. Any background like this will wrinkle like crazy and this one is no exception. Because it's lightweight, it easily can be put in to a standard clothes washer. I always do a light wash and tumble dry and then hang it from the background stand for a couple hours and pack it just before leaving for a shoot. This does help with big creases, not so much for the small, tiny wrinkles. The background's cross pole pocket is sewn on the 10' side, as would be typical. I prefer to have the pocket on the long end so I took it to a tailor/drycleaner and had a new one sewn in, that cost 10 bucks and it works great. I can use either pocket easily enough though.
A very nice backdrop, at a good price, and the color close to the online picture. Precisely the color I was looking for to use for a special project. Also terrific service from Adorama.
The colors are nice, and I've taken some portraits with it, and I like the look. Great value for the price. The handle of the included plastic carrying "bag" tore upon taking it out of the box, but I anyways doubt I could fold it back to store it in that bag again, anyways. So you'll need a different way to carry the backdrop.
The quality seems good as usual. The problem I have is that the color on the computer looked more light blue than lavender, but when it arrived it was VERY lavender. Not really what I wanted.
Use this as backdrop for portraits.
If you dont want to break the bank in order to have more background options this is a great choice. The price vs quality is right there and seems like it will be in my arsenal for quite some time for the future.
