Easier to set-up in small shooting areas, and transport in compact vehicles or crowded elevators, the #20 black 86" x 12 yd Seamless Background Paper from Savage is designed for shooting portraits, head shots, product photos, and even signage, drafting, decoration, and numerous other uses. The fine-tooth, non-reflective surface results in more saturated colors, less bounce-back on subjects, and is more forgiving with regards to lighting as well. A 100% recyclable and acid free product, the paper is core-wound and wrapped in a protective plastic sleeve. The core and sleeve help keep the paper clean, wrinkle-free, and protected from dirt and moderate exposure to the elements. As with any background paper, store vertically to maintain smoothness and avoid warping.

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.
If I had to do it over, I would have gone with the white one and still am going to buy it. That was my choice though, nothing against the product. If you are like me, and deciding between white and black....go white. I find most people like it better, easier to remove the background in post, doesn't eat light like black, and just cut the light on the background and you can achieve gray/black anyway. So unless you need black for a specific reason, white would be more practical for most people.
The roll of black Savage seamless background paper I purchased was to photograph products was delivered in a box-within-a-box. Packaging that was so good it bears mention. Background paper is a product where small defects (dents, creases, marks) can render the product useless.
This narrow size is perfect for small products and quick easy setup. I don't do professional photo work very often now so my studio is setup and torn down each session. for appropriatley small subjects the 26" wide paper is a time saver.
I choose black so the products I am photographing will appear to be "floating" over a black background. The paper really is quite black and provides a perfect background for normal or low-key photography. The paper itself is perfect for backgrounds; it is heavy and holds a smooth curve when draped onto a bench for small products which is just what I like.
Like most black backgrounds lighting needs to be done with a bit of care to make sure the background isn't washed into grey or the inherent texture does not defeat the deep blackness that may be desired. While rarely used in portraits a drop-out black background can provide for a striking portrait in certain circumstances.
If using a turntable for photographing frames for a 360 degree black Savage can overhang the turntable and has just the right amount of sag on the overhang. This makes it easy to create the illusion that the product is floating in dark space or sitting on an unending black surface.
I've also used this to black-out windows and other utility purposes and it has worked very well. I've even used other colors as a window shade during renovations some years ago!
This simple product is perfect for the photographic backgrounds it is made for and more. A simple thing well made for a purpose and useful for much more. It deserves 5 stars.
