My wife and I are expecting our first child (it's a boy!) December 6th. She suggested I buy a backdrop so we can shoot some clutter free shots of our newborn. We have a ton of space (1300 sq. ft. apartment) but here's the kicker... it's all carpet. BLUE carpet. Hah! I've always wanted the autopoles but I'll need a way to setup and take down a temporary solid floor for the roll to come down onto. I'm afraid that the roll will be destroyed as soon as anyone walks on it (over carpet) or places any props onto it. I'm hoping for some ingenious suggestions as the only one I can think of are those 2' x 2' wooden (maybe particle board?) tiles that interlock. Seems like a practical solution because we have a massiving living room and only use half of it. I could set them up against one wall in a grid of say 8' x 8' and then pull the roll down onto the surface for walking on.
Any/all ideas greatly appreciated!! Thanks in advance
