Hey everyone,

Trying to figure out what I could use as a shiny metalic background. Something like a chain link fence. I want to be able to see through it and get some of the seamless behind it...or possibly even posistion a model behind it. I thought about the chain link fence, but not sure if it is shiny enough. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

KJ

Hmmm, I suppose with the proper lighting chain link fence MIGHT be made to look shiny, but I don't recall ever seeing any images like that. Handling chain link fence in a studio ought to be REAL fun...

You weren't too specific on how much of the model you wanted to see, but I presume it's almost all or pretty near that. That rules out most of the perforated metal materials used for stair treads, vents, etc.

Offhand the best I can come up with is get some thin mylar like material and cut it into thin strips and then hang the strips from a cross piece of wood or similar. Then you can control exactly all the dimensions. It won't have horizontal pieces unless you get real ambitious, but I suppose you can also do them.

As for material, well, Coleman makes a "space blanket" used for camping that's usually available in sporting goods stores for about $5 or so. I've even seen them in K-Mart. You can cut it with scissors.

It'll be real shiny, maybe even more than you want. C'est la vie...
