Just curious what you all use for a background...I am aware a fair few of you have specific studio rooms but I'm not even close to that.
Considering going to a craft shop and purchasing either a big sheet of white or black fabric...or am I going the complete wrong direction?

Re: Backdrop help
I just took the plunge...
primarily people like to use muslin cloth or seamless paper
both have their positives and negatives...
muslin is easier to store, you get more texture with your backgrounds but is completely awful to iron out all the wrinkles...
also good quality muslin, that does not let light bleed through is going to cost you...
of course their is the DIY route, somewhere in the forums there is a link
seamless paper can rip...if your going for the 107 inch better be able to have a place to store it, it be WICKED long
it gives you nice streamline backgrounds, but has a lesser shelf life than muslin but is cheaper...
final verdict out of all that disorganized rant...
get some black and white or grey muslin and seamless paper to start out...see what works for you better...
I shoot Canon, I have some bodies, some lenses,and some lights. Photography is about the image not the L's that get you there. Though, feel free to send me your L's
