    I have this product in white, gray, blue and pink, so I love this paper - something about this color though I don't like.

    I adjust my white balance settings but can't seem to find the hue I'm looking for. Either too purply or too light. Not deep brown enough. Also, in some photos it came out looking a little splotchy, not smooth (see the zoomed in pic).

            I use this in my studio for portrait session with kids. I love this color and I love most of the seemless paper by Savage but the brown is a little hard to get right due to a hugh of red at the bottom if you do not have your lighting just right on the backdrop not to mention the subject! Will def use all the time, just takes a little extra work!!

              Comments about Savage Widetone Seamless Background Paper (53" x 12yd, #16 Chestnut):

              I used this color this weekend in a session and it was very, very nice. It is very rich, looks like a Hershey Bar Chocolate, actually, and you need to light it well. I only used a 36 inch octobox with a alien b800 and it lit very well. The only bad thing about that is I would need to have 2 lights (which defeats my minimalist approach into making into 'natural' light) to avoid shadow on the paper with full sized, tall adults. Children, however, does wonderfully.

              This color is actually a little lighter than it looks online. Although it still makes for a nice backdrop, its not as dark brown as I had hoped for.

                                    I RECENTLY BOUGHT SOME 53" PAPER ROLLS, AND THIS WAS ONE OF THEM. IT'S MY FAVORITE! THE COLOR LOOKS GREAT IN PHOTOS. I WILL PROBABLY ORDER THE BIGGER ROLLS NEXT TIME, THOUGH. THE PAPER TEARS/CRINKLES VERY EASILY TOO.
