I do not know what I am doing when it comes to photography, but a friend of mine does. I am considering purchasing a backdrop for her to use when she takes pictures of my daughter.

We have no backdrop stand. If I buy a 9x12 muslin, will we be able to rig up a way to "hang" it (I don't know how heavy they are or how flexible? I read on another post that someone buys 5-6 yards of fabric to use for their backdrops....what kind of material do you buy for a backdrop?

THANKS in advance. I am jealous of all you guy's talent!!!!

Muslin is pretty light, you can duct tape it to the wall, hang it over a rod, etc. It's easy to rig it.

When you're buying other material to use as backdrops, just make sure it's non-reflective...fleece works great, those types of material...satin and things like that reflect the light, which you don't want.

I've also hung it over the back of a chair for a quick baby shoot. You just have to experiment with different fabrics, some work better in certain lights then others.
