I am trying to take some credible photos of saddles and leather items that I make. I would like to use a black background and am wondering what type material I should use. Paper or cloth, and if cloth, what type texture? Would the soft velour type be better or a tightly finished cloth? I will have a new SX10 IS by tomorrow to work with. I do not have any studio type lights and will have to make do with whatever I can rig up for awhile. Any suggestions would be helpful, and if you feel the color of background is a poor choice, let me know that also. Thanks in advance.
