Great Backdrop

Positives: Works great for getting solid black backgrounds. The colors is consistent and even. Although I didn't plan on using it, I've found the sewn-in-pocket very useful for sliding it on the background support rather than clamping it. I've had no problems with anything reflecting or showing through on the other side. Negatives: The creases from being folded in the packaging took a good steaming to get out.

Positives: Works great for getting solid black backgrounds. The colors is consistent and even. Although I didn't plan on using it, I've found the sewn-in-pocket very useful for sliding it on the background support rather than clamping it. I've had no problems with anything reflecting or showing through on the other side. Negatives: The creases from being folded in the packaging took a good steaming to get out. On the positive side, I've left it hang since then and have not notice any return or new form. Conclusion: If you want a solid black background buy this one! I've attached a picture of a ceramic dragon positioned on a black table approximately 4 feet in front of this black backdrop.

Good and black, but kinda thin

Wish it was a little thicker. If there is a light source behind it, it will show through unless you double it up. Think "bed sheet" thick. If I don't want to double it up, I use a painting drop cloth and then put it over that. Probably priced right, but...

As Advertised!

By

from Los Angeles, CA  -  Pro Photographer

I bought this to make a blacked out studio backdrop in my room. I turned it sideways to cover a three wall space and had the bottom taken in so it wasn't dragging on the floor. It doesn't allow any extra light to seep in from the walls and created the perfect studio on the cheap.

Works

By

from Peoria, IL  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Yes, it is thin. Didn't seem to show any light through it though and I did not have it smack against a wall. I had lights on in my studio. Don't want to have it backlit though as those lights might show. I think for the price it is servicable. Seems long altough I did not measure. Don't see using it all that much but when the need arises. I didn't iron it and didn't have any problems with fold marks showing on the black.

it'll do

By

from dillon, co  -  Semi-pro Photographer

i use the background for its intended purpose. i needed a longer background on a budget. this one is long but it is very thin. i wish i had known how thin it was. it will work well under certain conditions but no backlight. next time i will spend twice the money on a better one

Not expensive

By

from Batavia NY  -  Pro Photographer

Should have spent more up front so I didn't have to upgrade it later..... Not that bad but thin. Plan on using it doubled.

Solid Value

By

from Lima OH  -  Semi-pro Photographer

The Adorama muslins seem to be as good as it gets for the price. I'm sure there are better quality backdrops ours there but they cost twice as much or more. These survive models with heels and mvement and also multiple washings and still look good. What else could you want? Non-wrinkling? Self-cleaning?
