He was such a wonderful model through all the lights and wardrobe changes! I took 52 shots and need to go through them and color correct and crop and stuff. He was so cute in all of them! I should have a few of the best ones ready to be posted tomorrow!

We use backdrops for our photo shoots involved with my job and we normally just send our stylist to the fabric store to buy regular fabric. It doesn't take very much if you crop in close.

All the photo studios I've worked with just use fabric, paper or sweeps. I'm wondering if companies just call it a photographic "drop" and charge more for what is just fabric. ???

i know they call it muslin and most are hand painted...and it is largert than most fabric...the probs i run into with fabric is it isnt wide enought for large dogs. for larger animals i use sheets but they dont come in as nice of a variety.

I was thinking about this and I see now..... you do portrait work and the shots we do are small products, so we don't need very large pieces of fabric. I can see with the type of work you do that you need really large pieces......

Thank you for all the wonderful comments everyone!

LadyM- I get the backdrops from www.amvona.com
I go through their store on eBay for the best prices. We have the 12ft wide by like 30 ft long backdrop. I did a lot of sports photography and needed the long ones for the floor for full shots. I still use them for my daughters gymnastics, on amvona.com on eBay they run about $90-$150 for the size I get, but much cheaper for smaller ones.
