Does what is say's on the tin.....
great for fashion shoots
By Neil from Derry
I use this for fashion photoshoots....full length and headshots. Consistent reliable results.I would definitely recommend this product.
Great for headshots and portraiture
By Gareth Dix
Great for a home studio or to take with you on the move as it fits into a car and isn't that heavy. The storm grey is perfect to get a range from dark grey to bright white just by adjusting the light hitting it.The edges do get scuffed easily and if you're shooting full length it would need to be replaced quickly (although I'm not sure you could shoot full length due to the width of it). For me it's perfect for a home studio set up where I do headshots and beauty work
An Essential Studio Background
About Me Pro Photographer
Primarily I use the backdrop with my portable studio kits on location and at events. The size is perfect as it makes the backdrop easy to transport whilst not restricting it's application as a fashion, editorial and portrait backdrop. For those with limited studio space or photographers on the move this is a great alternative to struggling with a great big 2.72m roll which will probably only be used for the centre 1.5m shooting area anyway. As with all paper backdrops it's not the most durable or long lasting accessory, one or two shoots and you start slicing lengths off that have been pock marked by high heels and props but this isn't so much of an issue in these days of digital trickery.All in all I love the feel and tone of the background itself, not too dark and not too light, it's a staple studio essential for any photographer. Simple, stylish, easy to get around. Yes there are alternatives but this is a classic shade from an established industry favourite brand.
Great Size Backdrop
I've always used either 9ft rolls or half rolls (4.5ft). The 9ft's are a pain to take around in the car, they will just fit in a Golf (I used to be able to manage 3 of them in a mk3 golf, but they'd take up most of the passenger seat as well as be annoying with gear lever). Half rolls are always a bit tight if you shoot a full length standing person. These are the perfect compromise. They easily fit in the car and are a far better width for shooting people on. Plus, inside people's houses, its far easier to set one up, setting up a 9ft in some people's houses is impossible, due to the width restrictions of their rooms and the fact that you need to pull out 9ft of paper to a sweep, so furniture etc. can't be in the way.
It just cannot get any better than this, and I think it deserves a place in any studio based photographers hands.

Great tone, size and for the price can last a long time.
this is the perfect compromise between the small and large colorama. I found that it was easily portable and easily big enough for one or two people.
