I volunteer for a dog rescue and so far we've been blessed with good weather. As winter draws near I'm thinking about purchasing a portable backdrop setup to use inside. When I looked at what to buy I just got very confused! Most of them said they were 10' high. The rooms I would be photographing in are pretty small. Does 10' been it is that tall or that it can open that tall, but can be shorter than that? If someone could offer some guidance in what to buy it would be appreciated!

If it says 10 feet then that is the maximum height. You can stop increasing height wherever youd like. I believe mine are about 3 feet when all the way down so adjustable from ~3 - 10 feet. Mine is also 10 feet wide but it comes in 3 sections, so it can be 6.6 feet or 10 feet wide.

Hope that helps.

Mine are Square Perfect. Pretty nice, but I have nothing to compare them to besides some cheapo ones at a local photo shop. The Square Perfect ones are much nicer than those (tho, I forget what brand they are.) Mine have the air cushion so when I drop the vertical stands they dont slam down.

One thing to take into consideration is the maximum weight they can support. Especially if you plan to hang a roll of seamless paper. That stuff can get heavy. 20lbs is pretty common and I do believe a roll of paper is quite a bit more that 20 lbs.
