Can anyone suggest a decent back drop to use for portraits with the intention of creating composites. I've heard grey works best. Im in the UK so would prefer UK sellers if possible.

with the paper can you re-use or is it a case of ripping of the section you've used after each session?

You can reuse it unless you get it dirty. A $50 roll will usually last me a year or more. It's by far the best option. For stills I prefer white/grey rather than green. Green creates all sorts of spill and color cast issues and is only necessary for video work.
