So family wants a session with a grey backdrop. I used to have Thunder Grey but forgot it in the move. Do i purchase thunder grey again or would something like Fashion Grey look better?

All i know is they are wearing Navy outfits, but I liked Thunder Grey when i had it....Any reason to chose Fashion Grey instead?

Thank You!

I always go for thunder grey but for families might prefer some colorful drops.

Pretty decent background and with 2 of these side by side, and enough separation, it blurs out nicely. I use black but with lights on them they turn out gray.

Thanks guys. say, what about Smoke Grey! Seems close to Thunder but may allow for some more subtle adjustments if needed?

Thoughts? Its either Thunder or Smoke Grey

I should have checked but I am pretty sure the lighter grey in our work studio was smoke grey. It will be harder to gel, compared to thunder grey otherwise should work. But then why not just use super white. You can easily make it smoke grey.
