what type of backdrop rack/ roller is that?
ALso, in the senior portrait you posted you said it was grey seemless paper (I assume the one shown in you studio..lol), but it looks so blue. I just figured you gelled it, but on your facebook there are a few others with the blue/terquoise background that I wouldn't think could have been done with a gel. WOuld you mind sharing what you did?

Aaron is correct with the post work and the hardware like he was in the studio him self and over my shoulder during post :)

I'll hop in here Jennifer, the Phamster can correct me if I'm wrong. He's using a bunch of the manfrotto Expan systems put together... very nice system. For the blue backdrop, my guess is that its just the color treatment in post giving it the blue tint. There's also a lot of texture added... white balance, split toning, and lots of layers/masks in photoshop. :-)

Pham, I love your studio! I am looking into that Manfrotto setup. I have one question...is there a reason you have an auto-pole system on one wall and the other mounted directly to the wall.

It gives me 2 distinct advantage
It alllows me to use a 8 foot wide or 9 or 10 or even a 12

allows me to put my lights behind the backdrop and also allows me to the creative without using a lot of booms. Because if just the back drops on the wall only. It doesn't allow you to behind the wall. Thus you have to have a negitive position solution for back lighting.
