my set up

Well my house is extremely full at the moment so my studio is being used as an actual bedroom I had this set up in my rumpus room which is doubling as my bedroom and I had about 4 feet in front of the backdrop to work in behind me is a huge window and it was actually very dark that day but I still managed to get good light when it came to picture time.

The fabric is jerzey knit hung over a clothes display rack not the home version though I got it from a shop that sells shop display stuff it is very sturdy and comes apart so I can fit it in my car if I need to take it with me.

Basically for this set up I hung the fabric as long as possible(it is 4 meters long) then on the floor I used a round edged glass table which is about 1m x 1m then I put that over the end and then pull the fabric stand back so the fabric is stretched and on an angle. It helps remove the wrinkles and increases the DOF I think this is why it looks so black.

Next time I set it up for a shoot I will make sure I take a better picture.

Hope this helps.

Oh and here are a couple of pics just cos.

Great setup! Thanks for the pic. I like the idea pulling the fabric stand back after you set the glass down. I may have to give that a try.

Awesome! I pulled my stand back a little too, and had Eva sit right at the front edge of the fabric, to increase the DOF which makes any BG wrinkles just disappear, it's great.

I'm still amazed at how that fabric is not affected one bit by the window light. Awesomely black!

Those pics are so cute!
