I went to Home Depot last night and bought some of these 4x8 panels to use a floor over white seamless. Neat effect and I'm getting closer to where I want it to be. One thing though. How do you guys get rid of the seam?

Thank you! I bought 2 sheets 2 days ago at home depot also, and have been racking my (small) brain with the same issue. I'm at the point now where I may laminate them to a larger sheet of 1/4 inch ply and then carefully caulk the seam. If I do it right, I don't think the caulk line will show up. That being said...now how do I move this thing and where the heck do I store it? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Why not just photoshop it out? Seems easier than calking, and trying to move the huge mass around.

Ok, so I don't "know" for sure, but it seems like some are exposing with enough light on the tiles to give more of a reflective shine and wash out the seam.

Check out the pictures in this thread

Hopefully, someone actually using them will chime in. I want to use them too.

Hey, I've been using 4x8 white "tile board" for the past three years. I first started using it to keep models from punching holes in my seamless. I solved the line problem in two ways -- First, I lay the boards horizontal to the camera with the board in front overlapping the board behind. If any lines show, I use PS to remove.

Here's a sample of how the tileboard looks without any PS. Model is Michelle Kathlene



Here's what you can do with a little PS. I copies the sky and pasted it into the tialboard at a 30% opacity. Model is Kimberly

I'm pretty sure you can find white vinyl tape, like electrician's tape, but white. That would minimize the seam, although you'll probably still have some small seam shadows from the tape edges.

Place them horizontal to the camera with the front section slightly on top of the rear section. That way the camera will not see the shadow line, or at the very least it will be minimized.

Hi Steve,
I have 2 sheets that I lay horizontal to the camera and lap the one closest to camera one over the far one. As Photomart said, if the joint shows, PS it out.

Hi Mike,

I was told to use gaffers tape which can be found at most photo supply stores or bought online at B&H, Adorama, etc. That was you can take the panels apart for storage. The gaffers tape comes in white as well as a few other colors. Hope this helps.
