p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Printed Floor Drops


I知 looking to purchase a printed floor drop for an upcoming shoot in a few weeks seeking advice from those have used them in the past. Any recommendations as to brands, material, sources, etc would be greatly appreciated. The larger ones from Denny are sold in two sections so I壇 like to avoid a seam if possible. I知 looking at getting either an 8x8 or 8x10. Thanks in advance!

If you want something that covers the floor and back, wouldn't you want something like a 10x20 or 8x20? You can research backgrounds over at the B&H Photo website. Search on backdrops and look at the various reviews and questions. That will give you an idea of what to buy and what to avoid. Smoothing out wrinkles is a pain, so wrinkle-resistant backdrops are great. Seamless roll paper might be another way to start. Just make sure you tape it to the floor before putting anyone on it.

What type of background you need will depend on what you want to shoot.

I should have been more specific on the concept. I have two 4x8 flats with a dark faux stone finish and will probably build two more for a different look. The location has more than ample space and ceiling height for the set plus my lighting, but the floor is just a drab beige tile. I知 leaning to using a floor drop with a distressed concrete finish. I think the 8x10 would give me a bit more versatility in pulling the model further from the background letting it go darker. I have a variety of seamless, and will do some head and shoulders with it, but I致e never been much of a fan of full length on seamless, hence the set and need of a drop for the floor only. Thanks for your responce.
