5.0 out of 5 stars A thick black paper which photographs near-black., July 9, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Savage Seamless Background Paper, 53 Inch wide x 12 yards, Super Black,20 (Electronics)
I was a bit worried with some of the reviews which said this paper photographs grey. I wanted a black backdrop for some portraits and was hoping this would do the job.

Well it did, and with flying colors.

Using a pair of softboxes on my subject to control light spill, I was able to achieve a near-black background with this paper straight out of camera. With a little post processing on the computer, I would able to push the background to pure black with no hassle at all.

If I would have used direct lighting onto the paper, it would have photographed more grey. However if you can keep the light on your subject and minimize spill onto the paper, you will achieve a very dark background with this paper.

Very happy overall.
