okay, i just bought a new 9' studio gray seamless. i had it up, but then today--like idiot-boy--i screwed around with it swapping out the stands for some other stands and it got some wrinkles and creases as a result... not hardcore wrinkles/creases, but they're there, nonetheless.

toast? or is there some clever way to get them out? (and "no," rolling the paper out more ain't what i have in mind)

Is this cloth? If so, then a steam iron will do the job or even one of those hand steamers that one carries on a trip.
Cheers,

If it's just bent/wrinkled and not folded you could use a steam iron and hold something on the other side. Not your hand [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]

I've been able to get wrinkles and MINOR kinks out of paper (and even shipping-damaged prints) with careful and patient use of a steam iron. It won't do much for sharp wrinkles and severe creases where the surface of the paper is broken or severely stretched (meaning the fibers are pulled nearly to their stretching capacity), but it can help.

I've actually ironed paper before. Place a towel over it and Iron the towel, and it should work as long as it isn't a fold. JUST DON"T IRON DIRECTLY ON THE PAPER!

Well another thing to consider is your DOF. If the model is far enough away from the background and you shoot open enough, the wrinkles should disappear due to DOF and compression (hopefully). Shooting digital makes this a bit more difficult unless you have longer lenses and enough space to shoot in.

You can see an example in this photo. Trust me, there are TONS of wrinkles. One thing that is generally done is when putting it away, its twisted so as not to get hard creases. You will still get wrinkles but there will not be hard lines and squares in the backdrop.
 
 
I should have noted that it\'s PAPER I\'m talking about.... sorry

What David Moyle said. Being the cheapskate that I am I too have ironed out (with a towel and a little steam) wrinkles in seamless paper, pretty much defeating the purpose of buying it in the first place. Now if I can just figure out how to get my paper plates to make it a full cylce in the dishwasher I'll be set. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Spray them with shellac or varnish before you use them [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

(Disclaimer for those that need it...this was a joke, don't actually be dumb enough to try this)
