I am just enjoying Rolando's Glamour Made Simple DVDs. I notice in all his studio setups there is a long backdrop extending onto the floor and that there is a sheet of transparent material placed where the model stands. Can any one tell me what this material is...acrylic...glass...polycarbonate?
Thanks

Most use Plexiglass. You can get it at Home Depot or at a plastics dealer.

What a great idea. I need to buy a new roll of paper because of all the marks I had on mine from the shoes. I kept on cutting off a little at a time until I did not have enough on the roll. It's times like this that make this place worth the money...

You can put down the plexiglass and your paper will last longer, but you won't get the same seamless results as you'll get reflections in the plexiglass (which is often what you want). But if you want a true seamless effect and you're shooting full length shots, then you'll have to burn some paper. If you're on carpet of anysort, then you can put the plexiglass under the paper which will help keep holes being punched in it.
Cheers,

Well at least someone is enjoying the DVD. I sent payment in for mine back in March and have yet to receive my order. After numerous e-mails I still don't have it. Beware to all who order. This may nor be Rolando's fault but the least he could do is send me one from his personal collection. Hmmm.... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]

If you would share with me and all, should you just purchase 1/4" plexeglass or lexan? What thickness?

Thanks

I use 4' X 8' plexi. Haven't seen the DVD yet but some of it was shot in my studio so it may be my plexi in some of the shoots. Purchased at local glass shop 1/8" thick around $55.00 a sheet. They also can get me 5x10 if I want it.

Home Depot only had I think 3x6 sheets
