When in need of a bold, patterned studio background for senior portraits or grunge fashion shots, what do you turn to?

When you purchase a muslin background, it will be folded and packaged. Remove it from the package and hang it on your backdrop stand, spray the fabric evenly with a spray bottle of water and let gravity iron out the wrinkles. If you need to use it right away, use a hand held fabric steamer. It removes wrinkles and creases easily and quickly. Just be sure to not rub the muslin with the steam head or you might damage the muslin fabric.
High end photographers use a lot of seamless paper because there are many advantages to their use. The paper itself is a fine tooth quality designed to prevent reflection, eliminating the need to over or underexpose the backdrop in order to get a seamless look. Because it is paper, anytime a fresh backdrop is needed, setting one up is as simple as tearing off or rolling out a new sheet from the roll.
While many photographers prefer to work with whatever natural backdrops are available when they work on location, sometimes a natural backdrop or location just isn’t practical. They may get to the site and discover it is too small, or doesn’t provide the photographer with enough control in order to get the shot he wants. In these cases it is good to have a collapsible backdrop handy in order to better control the photo shoot and get the perfect shot.
