It looks like that I am heading to get the Hensel light kit. Now I need to think about backdrops. As a starter, I wan to have a black one and a white one. Seamless paper is my choice unless other alternative to be consider. Any suggestions where to get paper and stands? What to look for? Thanks.

I've had several JTL's in my studio for a long time, come in a nice case. The Calumet's are also good.

I got mine at Penn Camera, local chain. Wescott stands and Savage paper.

I find I don't use white as often as I thought, black is good, I'm really liking my new yellow paper and thinking about pink, but that's just me.

One thing to consider on background stands is how big a footprint they have. In a small space, a couple of background stands can take up a LOT of space.

The way around that if you have ceilings at 14 feet or less is to go with auto-poles. They have a minimal footprint, but moving them around is a pain. They do work very well in hotel rooms!

If you are looking for a cheap way to go, you might consider using trucker's load braces instead of auto-poles. They work like the auto-poles but can be considerably cheaper. You might wind up having to create some crosspiece brackets, but hey, you want cheap or not?

For a black backdrop I use crushed black velvet, it also works very well with different color gels. Check out the www.backdropoutlet.com from Chicago. they may not have it listed online, but I know they carry them, may have to call them and ask.
