Sure - it's $39.95 for 12 yards at B&H and if I remember right, it costs almost the same amount to ship it. It is so much easier to use than white muslin - I almost went crazy trying to PS out all the wrinkles! <img border='0' src='/images/icons/crazy.gif'>
Wow, this is so beautiful! I only get good light in my "studio" (yeah right..junk room) for about one hour in the morning. So that leaves about two hours a week where I can practice, and usuallly I'm so busy I don't get to. Anyway, can you tell me how much your white backdrop was?
Awesome studio.It's beautiful. I am so envious. Mine is in the garage which is fine when the weather is okay but I live and TX and can't imagine what I will do when summer approaches.
Love the idea of the hooks. Sent my husband out right now to copy. Thanks, I keep pricing the ones you can mount to your ceiling but they are so expensive. Great idea. TFS.
I wish it were this way all day! Unfortunately, I only start getting light like this in the early evening.
As a natural light photographer, it always kills me to see a studio light set up in a room that is just busting at the seams with gorgeous natural light...sigh! Why not me?! LOL
Project - Easy (& cheap) way to hang backdrop paper!

My dad set this up for me this weekend. He installed two bike hooks in the ceiling of my studio and dropped a 10-foot piece of PVC into the hooks for holding my 9-foot roll of Savage paper (from B&H). I still have to roll it back up manually, but it's a great way to get it out of the way - and it's more secure than my standard backdrop stand (I keep it behind the paper with a black muslin). We put 2 more hooks in front of the current one so I can hang another roll of paper in a different color later. The best part - the hooks and PVC totaled less than $8 at Home Depot! TFL!
