      Not wide and not a huge supply of paper, but that makes it easy for location work.

        Comments about Savage Widetone Seamless Background Paper (53" x 12yd, #74 Smoke Gray):

        Have used Savage background papers since 1987. Have tried other brands occasionally but the quality does not match that of Savage. I like the very smooth surface and the consistency. Colors can be counted on to be accurate. Grays are very neutral (on the neutral papers). This paper, smoke gray, is very close to standard gray card tonality, so makes it especially useful in situations where color accuracy is critical.

        I actually have several 53" wide rolls in bright colors that date back 20 years. The paper has not deteriorated at all, no color change. Rather impressive I think! Just used them this week on a food photography assignment.

          Heavy enough paper that makes for a great backdrop! Colors are a little darker than expected but still awesome!

              I use this gray to shoot still life shots for catalogs. This size is great for travel, although you need to be sure to have enough to shoot on when you account for ripping...but it is paper...

              Comments about Savage Widetone Seamless Background Paper (53" x 12yd, #74 Smoke Gray):

              In preparation of applying to grad school for my MFA in ceramics, I needed a good backdrop to photograph some of my old small-scale sculpture work. This was the perfect background- it was easy to take well lit photos with a smoothly faded background, considering my limited light source (one white-light lamp in my home). My photos came out looking professional, and I feel all the more confident in my portfolio. Also, with good care, the amount of paper will last me through grad school!
              The amount of paper is also pretty heavy, so you will need a good way of hanging the backdrop- perhaps string rope through the roll and hang from a wall or ceiling. Also (as it is paper) when using something heavy like ceramics on it, it rips and creases easily, so you really have to be gentle.

                              I use this as a background for photography. I previously just had the white one that comes with the Savage Background Kit and found it so handy I wanted to get more to test out. At these prices, I want to get them all.

                              The gray is good for light and dark skin tones and the size is just right to fit in my car. I have one of the 9ft ones and it's too much to handle on my own.

                                  I use the backdrop in my studio. I can see how many different ways it can be used depending on the amount of light that is put on it.

                                  I just wish it was a little wider.

                                        I think I'm now up to about 15 colors of Savage paper and I'm finding this is one of the most used. It's a very versitile color that's good to use for every session.
