Re: Portable background width

My experience has been, whatever background size you bring with you, what you actually need is 1-2 feet wider than what you have.

Seriously!

I consider 9-foot to be the minimum for most practical uses, short of simple headshots. This turns out to be fairly practical -- most cars can fit a 9-foot roll without having to leave a window open, and there are many choices for support systems.

Best,
Paul
