I have been shooting against a gray BG and while I like some spill on the BG I wish I could get rid of the light refelctance on the transition of the paper from floor to upright part. how do you do it?
here is a picture, the subject is lit, and hte spill is on the BG but on the right side of the pic, in the transition, you can see a lighter color, or reflectance right at the level of his knee. how do you avoid that? thanks.

also I was thinking about having his back lit a little, how would you backlight this or reflect it? thanks.

Use a larger radius for your paper sweep. Build a cove with a three or five foot radius and then lay your paper over that. The shiny paper reflects light which creates the bright band. So flattening it out will reflect it somewhere else. You might try a softer light and or changing the position of the light until it goes away.

Putting a plex mirror or silver reflector or white reflector behind your subject and catching some of the main light is the easiest way to get the edge light. Or add another strobe head.
