What size of muslin and what type of supports would I need for a portable rig to take pictures of a race truck? It is a full-size truck.

I can kind of visualize the size needed. I'm not sure such a thing exists but I have been looking at some studio shots of race trucks. They appear to be on a backdrop of some sort? How do they do that. I don't think its all PS.

Usually when autos are taken to a studio for shoot, the studio has a "Cyc" or "Cyclorama" or "Sweep" which is the equivalent of using seamless paper for a portrait. The biggest difference is that the Cyc is permanant and built across two walls of the studio. Generally, in a rental studio, you can pay to have it repainted whatever color you need (white, black, chroma key green/blue, etc) but you also get charged for it being painted back to its "normal" shade + the cost of the paint.

You have to take into account how to light the Cyc (or keep light off it if you want a black void...) as well as the car.

Thanks for the info on the Cyclorama. I found a few studios around that have this. I was hoping for something portable but that looks like a stretch.:lol:
