Default Quick fix for folds in muslin background?

Hi! I just bought a muslin black background.. Awesome size 10'x24'.. Now, my problem is I bring my background to my clients.. but it has folds!

Is there a quick fix in Lightroom/Photoshop for the background? In some of the pics, I just needed to add more Blacks and it can work.. but not on all..

Also, I use natural light only.. no flash..

Thanks in advance!

Don't fold it. If it has to travel then crumple it so the wrinkles are random in direction.

And it is only natural light then you will have some trouble shooting it black as you have found.

Increase separation between subject and background, shoot a wider aperture and or a longer focal length, and then it will easily shade into a blurred set of grays and blacks.

Or use some light.

adding more black can cause distraction after being folded! so, don't fold it unless its necessary
