    I was really excited to get my first backdrop, but disappointed about the lack of information. Would muslin be too thin? Would I have enough?

    I am an amatuer and would like to have something to grow with me. This backdrop didn't disappoint. Very thick - even the window in the background doesn't show through. The color is true black. And the quality of fabric is fantastic.

    It's heavy - which is a good thing, but it's alot of fabric to move around.

    Be aware!! NOT PREMIUM HEAVY WEIGHT !!! I read other reviews and some said specifically and without question that no light shines through the material even in front of a window. It's either a planted-lie from the manufacturer, or these people were staring at the sun WAY too long. In reality IT'S NOT HEAVY WEIGHT . . . PERIOD! I bought spray fabric-adhesive and will try to adhere some cheap backing to this cheap product. Very surprised B&H allows the term " premium heavy weight". It's not true.

    Comments about Backdrop Alley BAPH24BLK Premium Heavyweight Solid Muslin (10 x 24', Black):

    I'm just starting up my studio work this year and saw this as one of the most rated and had some good reviews. I already used this background and this is my feedback so far1. The description of "Premium Heavyweight" is quite misleading because the main reason why it is heavy is because of its sheer length. But compared to my other Muslins, it is not as thick and some backlighting penetrates through2. I did not realise that it does not come with a carrying bag! All the backdrops I ordered came in with bags. Given that this is 24 feet, I would have assumed that it should come with a bag.Apart from the above, the black colour is quite rich, but I make sure that of light does not strike it. To make the background full black, had to adjust the post-process contrast.

          Everything is great about this product. It's Huge, Thick and keeps light out. Both sides can be used on your backdrop and one side has gromets. Just an overall excellent piece of craftsmanship. I know I won't have to buy another Black Backdrop for a long long time.

                True black, thick, durable... everything you need in a good backdrop. Does not let any light through. I also use it behind some thinner muslins to absorb any light penetrating the first layer.

                      This is a good solid piece of fabric, as described in advertisement. IT does let a tiny amount of light through, we've doubled up, putting two muslins together and hanging them which solves the problem. It folds up well and we fit three in a largish rolling suitcase with no problem and room for other equipment. It does not come with a bag or anything else.

                        This black backdrop is exactly what I was looking for. I have been using the same thin black backdrop for over 5 year and often had to photoshop to make the black more dense. Not with this one. It is made of a thicker more durable material and photographs as jet black. I am very happy with my selection and recommend it to others looking for quality.

                              Comments about Backdrop Alley BAPH24BLK Premium Heavyweight Solid Muslin (10 x 24', Black):

                              This backdrop is very large but perfect for my needs. I had been using paper backdrops for about a year so I was delighted to find a quality replacement that was much more portable. The backdrop is thicker than I expected and the color is perfect for me. The room I use to shoot does not have any windows so I can't expound on the denseness of the fabric.

                              The backdrop ships folded up inside a clear plastic bag. Once unfolded, you will notice wrinkles all over. My drapery steamer was quite effective getting the wrinkles out, leaving a smooth finish. It also helped reduce the dye smell from the fabric.

                              I drape mine over a backdrop stand and use clips to secure it to the rod. There are grommets installed on one short end to make it easier to hang.

                              If you're like me, you may need to get a storage container to keep it safe. When not in use, mine resides in a 5 gal. container with a lid which is a bit larger than necessary.

                              The backdrop was shipped quickly and arrived in perfect condition. If you are looking for a high-quality black backdrop, consider this one.

                              Comments about Backdrop Alley BAPH24BLK Premium Heavyweight Solid Muslin (10 x 24', Black):

                              I am a professional photographer and I needed a larger backdrop. This Muslin is not a sheet...it is very well made and hangs well. I have no complaints on this product and would recommend this to any one to buy.

                                I used this for the first time at an All White Affair and loved it. It nice and thick so you don't have to worry about being able to see through it. 24ft long is perfect cause it allows enough space between the backdrop and the subject.

                                  Comments about Backdrop Alley BAPH24BLK Premium Heavyweight Solid Muslin (10 x 24', Black):

                                  We needed a background for a three-camera video interview set and purchased one 10' x 12' and two 10' x 24' sets. The muslin is durable, easily serviced, absorbs light well, and is easy to hang. We find the larger size more effective for the sweep of the set. With subjects set far enough away from it, the fabric texture disappears completely, keeping the focus on the discussants. The price is right for the quality.

                                    This is an excellent Muslin Backdrop! It does have eye loops to hang your backdrop but most surport units do not fit through the eyelets...so just use the sewn sleeve to slide the Backdrop Bar through. It is and beyound what I thought it was going to be. After reading a few reviews, I was surprised it was much thicker than what others reviewed it as!

                                      Long backdrop for TV studio, works as advertised. Easily touched up with spot ironing, relatively opaque.
