Ultra wide portable background?
Apr 1, 2013

Does anyone have a suggestion for a very wide portable background?  Ii photograph a lot of dancers and I am looking for something 15' wide, white and that can form a nice clean line with the floor or a piece of seamless that I lay on the floor.

thanks.

Mark

Several strips of seamless cut off and taped together with a little overlap then taped lengthwise to the wall and floor.

Overlap so that the overlap throws the least the least possible shadow.  Not sure about the wall but for the floor overlap the one closest to the camera on top the one furthest from the camera.

Put the seamless paper up horizontally.

Thanks for your comments.  The problem with putting seamless paper up horizontally is it isn't easy and in some cases it isn't possible depending on the walls.  I shoot in dance studios frequently and the dance barres typically run the circumference of the room.  So while it is a good, inexpensive solution - it won't work for me.

If anyone else has any experience or solutions with this, I'd appreciate your advise.

Thanks.
