            Comments about Savage 52"x20' Velvetine Background - Midnight Black:

            We use this for photographing objects on black. It's wonderful as it sucks up the light... most of the time. This last order we got a roll that was a touch lighter and had a hint of red in it that was less than ideal. We've used this product for a couple years and have bought a couple rolls and this is our first bad roll, but it is disconcerting to have such variation. When you do get a good roll, it is absolutely wonderful.

              I use this both as background and as tabletop covering for still life and orchid imaging. It disappears completely from pictures. In other words, it works as advertised. And unlike cloth it doesn't wrinkle.

              I use this material as a midnight black backdrop, and as a means to reduce reflections off of colored walls. Cheaper by the square meter/yard than real velvet, and can be easily cut to fit odd scenarios. I would only prefer larger roles, 50' or 100'.

                Bought this to try as a background for product shots. Had been using black velvet, but it gets wrinkled, and after using a steamer, velvet takes time to dry out!
                Velvet shows every bit of lint, and so does this material. But a little time with some compressed air, and you're good to go. No picking every little piece off with fingers or tweezers like with velvet.

                    I love this backdrop. I use it for maternity and newborn shoots most often. It absorbs the light well and if there is a mess you can tear it off. It is more expensive than the Savage Paper in black but I believe it photographs better. The only draw back is that it shows dust from feet... I use plexiglass to help keep it cleaner. and if you have a cat look out! Cat hair sticks to it...
