Shankar, I dont like the wrinkles they show as examples, just looks like a bed sheet covered in a design.

Im guessing the freedom cloth doesnt show wrinkles? I never see wrinkles when picture are posted here at least.

Gerry, Freedom cloth does not wrinkle much. However, I have seen many portraits where they purposely show the pleats as here, and those are not wrinkles.. If you have a large piece and do not stretch it tight, we will have that situation, even with Denny.

Nice wam, I really like 2. 1 is a fantastic overall feel though I would personally like it leveled.

Nice shot. The shadows are a bit dark to me. Especially on the camera side of her head. I also think the vignette is a bit too strong. If you need that much maybe you should just crop it.

I agree with the vignette comment.

Maybe it is just me.. I feel that her top is not flattering her. The checked pattern shows a small bulge in the stomach area, and the creases near the chest are distracting.

I took the plunge an I bought three denny backgrounds. :) saved 50% on the 6x8 drops and enrolled in the club. Im having buyers remorse now :D but it will be good to offer some new stuff in studio, especially this coming winter.

I now have to think about the floor, those of you that use drops, what do you use for floor deesigns? do you only have what is actually installed or do you change it up by laying down different designs?

I rent my studio, and right now I have carpet there, so im thinking of getting a large piece of plywood, and then getting some cheap flooring from sams club that is on clearance and put enough of it together to suit my needs. then lean it against hte wall when im not using it.

A couple of the backgrounds is a wall design with graffiti, does anyone have any suggestions for a flooring that would look like cement?

what options do you have for floor coverings? and how do you store them when they are not in use?

I rent so tearing the carpet up isnt an option. :) when I first started there a few years ago it had this ugly linoleum floor and at he time I was thinking just toss sheets on the floor to compliment the background, white for white, black for black, and carpet made sense since the sheets wouldnt slide around. then photoshop it to look solid. Now I want to get the stuff from home depot that is solid white and has a reflective quality but its pretty expensive and bigger than my car can fit. :) also some wood flooring.

not sure how im going to do the cement/pavement look for the graffiti drops. Right now I can avoid the full length shots but it would be nice to have that option.

I also have a pvc tubing background stand. my goal is to eventually get rid of it and buy a good one from bh that can hold 4 drops. it will save me like 6' since my stand is pretty thick to make sure it was balanced and wouldnt fall over.

I also have to find a chair that is suitable for girls to straddle. the one I have now has a back that is to high for them to rest their elbows on. Any suggestions for an optimal height of the back of the chair in relation to the seat? I may be over thinking this. :)

Maybe you can make them cool Shankar but I just threw away about 20 of them from my upstairs. Ikea also has some cheap/nice looking snap together flooring.

Thanks Jak for the ikea idea. There isnt one near me, but next month were visiting my dad in Canada and theres a huge new one in Ottawa that we havent been to yet. :) I'll have to check them out.

A flooring idea had *not good for seniors though, but chldren instead* is to get those foam floor squares that have one for each letter of the alphabet.
