Most Liked Positive Review


Good product at a great price.

It's a good backdrop. The color is good and even throughout. It is a little thin; however, it still works great indoors.


Most Liked Negative Review


Too thin,

I guess they just don't make muslins like they used to. I have 3 muslins purchased several years ago, and it is heavy/canvas like material. This item is something I can purchase in any sewing/fabric store in the US for a fraction of the cost. It is a very thin material, the type you'd make a shirt out of. Save your money and go to a fabric store and buy a piece of black cloth because that's what your getting here.

Quality at an affordable price


from Cumming,GA  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I take portraits in my home studio and the black muslin background is perfect for my needs. Well made and a buy at the price.




from Reston, VA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Exactly as advertised. Good deep color and heavy enough to provide solid background. Easy to handle.


Great deal


from Conifer, CO  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Works perfectly for low key shots.


A beautiful and simple black background


from Napoli Italy  -  Semi-pro Photographer

It works well for indoor shoots, its a fairly thin sheet. I compare it to a normal bed sheet. It feels solid and it'll do its job well. I enjoy mine, its easy to set up and use. I iron mine. I use a large heavy blanket on the floor as an ironing board. I steam out most of the wrinkles, i let the lens do the rest. For the cost and vibrance of the black, its worth the buy.


it works

Excellent buy for the money!


from Fort Irwin, CA  -  Pro Photographer

I purchased this for indoor newborn shoots. As a mostly natural light photographer I and hadn't worked with a backdrop before but stepped into newborn photography and realized quickly I needed an indoor backdrop setup. Newborns are just not prepared for outdoor elements and clients had definite ideas on black backdrop images. I purchased this before my first shoot and the images were amazing. I did darken the backdrop in photoshop but was ridiculously easy. The Muslin is heavy enough to give a great black background and this set up was less expensive than other products out there and I felt I got more for my money. Having never worked with a backdrop or stand I do have to say I was disappointed to have found no directions in the box but it was an easy set up and didn't take me more than a few minutes to figure it out. If you plan to take it with you to an on location shoot, you'll need two people to stand it up. I couldn't be happier with this purchase. The size of the backdrop is amazing. Tall enough and long enough to get standing families with no problem. I highly recommend this!


Good dark backdrop


from SN Diego CA  -  Photo Enthusiast

Had to iron out the folds but no problems after that. Good deal for the price
