the final setup. the dotted lines represent how far the actual tripod was situated from the background while still fitting the background in the frame.
before you set up your studio, make sure you take the necessary measurements for your setup.
conclusion: although this kit offers a significant value for the buck, the only advantage of using solid color muslins are that they are portable. It is definitely a pain in the ass to lug a roll of seamless paper with you unless you have a full size fan. you CAN fit a roll of seamless paper in a car with fold down seats, however the roll of paper will only have 12 inches of room before hitting your front windshield: no fast stops please
what else..... if there was a kit version that featured light stands (you can never have enough light stands) and 15 feet of muslin vs 20 feet, i would have purchased that version. honestly, 15 feet for a home studio is perfect. anything beyond 15 feet is wasted material (imo).
As for the stands themselves, I dislike how they use non-standard threads 1/4 inch mounts vs the 3/8 tripod mounts. that means you HAVE to buy an adapter in order to use the backdrop kit as a light stand. keep this in mind when you are purchasing backdrop kits as i would have loved to use the backdrop stands as light stands if i did not already have a light stand holder. so again, not a deal breaker at all.
find a 15 foot muslin kit and buy that one if it is cheaper than the 20 foot kit. worse comes to worse, you can cut off the excess 5 feet and make a blanket for your pet.
that's my verdict on ebay muslins. thanks for reading
