    I bought this kit for head shots at a seminar about developing your image on the digital platform. I had the corner of the "cocktail lounge" in the hotel banquet room to set up and draw clients in as they mingled. I used a pair of 650w hot lights and 33" umbrellas, A Canon 70D with a 70-200mm 2.8 IS II lens.I was a little surprised at it's size at first, I mean sure, the dimentions are clearly stated. This is definitely large enough to cram 2-3 people in for medium shot in the portrait position. 5-6 people or more for medium close up shot in landscape.There are two sides to this background. One is light the other is dark. It's made of a very thick Nylon "stocking" like material... I wouldn't go running up to it with sissors pointed in it's direction but normal use shouldn't cause it to run. I read reviews about the setup being confusing. There is a plastic squeeze clamp that screws on to the top of the durable (mildly to sort of heavy) 8' aluminum light stand. Some reviewers expressed the fear of losing this clamp, taking it off after use. However, I found it easy to just leave it on the light stand and put it in my road case where I feel it will be safe. If it is going to be rolling around in your trunk, then I suggest gaff taping it to the side of the light stand or something during travel. Be smart and Sandbag this thing. It was secure enough to stand on it's own indoors, but if someone knocked into it it could go over and you'd have an angry client.There were a few slight crease marks along the edge of the background especially in the corners, but were not noticable in any of my prints. There are two velcro straps on either side of the long edge of the background, and one on each narrow. These aid in securing the background in addition to the clamp.The image attached to my review represents the lighter side of the background. It's semi-see through at first, and before studio lighting, it appeared to be darker all around on both sides. When lit, more white popped out, and lighter grey's showed through.Collapsing the background is going to be tricky for short people. I am 5'10" and was able to collapse it with some effort getting my arms wide enough to reach around the edges to fold it in on itself. A pictorial instruction pamflet was included in the box for breaking it down. the trick is to push it toward the ground.In all I'm very pleased with this kit. There are many color options available and If I begin to do more studio like portrait work in the future, I may buy more.

      Comments about Collapsible Stand Kit (60 x 72", Black/White):

      I use this product for headshots and it works great. The size is perfect for that application and folding it up is pretty simple considering the size. It is a great choice for a portable background. The stand is a little on the light-weight side considering the opened size and weight of the background but it works. I recommend a sandbag for stability. I also like that the stand can double as a speedlite stand when not holding the background.

      Comments about Collapsible Stand Kit (60 x 72", Black/White):

      It's ok, but I can't say I love it. It's great having a black and white background, and it is easy to assemble, but there are wrinkles in the fabric which I cannot get out. I haven't tried to fold it up yet, so that will be interesting. I'm wondering now if I should have gotten paper.

      Great for headshots!

      By S.F

      from San Francisco

      Comments about Collapsible Stand Kit (60 x 72", Dark/Light Gray):

      Easy to use. Great for headshots and with the right depth of field you can do complete upper body shots. It's lightweight l and I love the fact it's reversible. I originally was going to use the lighter gray side. But after setting up 2 point lighting I realized the darker side helped my subjects pop out more.

      The only thing I recommend is either you make sure your subject and backdrop have enough separation to where the backdrop is blurred out. Or before traveling with it you steam it and make sure any hard set wrinkles are gone.

      Other than that I would definitely buy another of these backdrops.

          I've done one shoot with it so far and I love the Comoros on this indigo pattern. It wanted to spring a little out of shape on one corner but wasn't a major issue. The stand is super light weight so be careful with it but uts not holding much weight. Overall I'm pleased.

                Comments about Collapsible Stand Kit (60 x 72", Dark/Light Gray):

                The background seems well made and easily collapses into the included carry bag. I intend to order the white/black version without stand as there is almost no difference between the dark side and the light side.The reason for the 3-stars: I was expecting a sturdy proprietary frame. Instead the frame is a cheap, lightweight aluminum light stand. Since the background has loops on all sides, if you have an old light stand, just order the background alone and save $.

                I was looking for kit to do some professional head shots for a staff of about 20. I needed something small to carry but would deliver a big result! Man did I pick the right product or what!!! Great color scheme and the case along with the stand is perfect. This will be used at my studio alot! Gives such a professional look to my portraits. Will sure be order more!!! Can't go wrong with this product!!!

                  I purchased this to use as a photo backdrop at parties. It's great for singles and can be used somewhat for groups of two, with some limitations due to width. It folds easily into the enclosed carrying case, although a separate case is needed for the stand. I wish there was an easier way to mount it on the stand horizontally, but otherwise a very good product.

                    Comments about Collapsible Stand Kit (60 x 72", Indigo Nights):

                    This is a fairly large background that's perfect for taking executive or individual torso/head-shot portraits. Easy to expand/collapse and easily takes 90% less time than setting up/breaking down a traditional studio backdrop.

                    There are few key things to note:
                    - obviously, it's a tool, and not every problem requires a hammer. This backdrop simply isn't for doing full-body shots. That isn't a knock, it's simply awareness of what you're purchasing.
                    - It would be nice the included stand had a cross bar to support the width of the backdrop. You can solve this in a plethora of ways (or ignore it), but the kit isn't all-inclusive, so be aware. This would be especially important if you're stand is close to an air-vent that might cause the backdrop to wobble a bit.

                    I got this product for corporate headshots where I work. All in all it works fine and is a nice size with great portability. I do however question it's longevity, as it all seems a little on the cheap side. My carry bag is already coming apart at the seam and needed restitched. The stand also seems kind of low quality, but should be ok of you don't get rough with it.

                      This is not an expensive, elaborate background. But it is a very good means of providing excellent low-cost back ground that is fast and easy to set-up, and travels nicely. The quality is more than satisfactory, especially for this price point. I have used mine several times now, and it is great. The pictures look amazing and my clients are very happy.

                          This backdrop is a great addition to a mobile studio set. Convenient to put up and take down and saves a ton of time. Material is good quality and seems durable. The stand it comes with is pretty flimsy and I don't see it lasting very long. But, if/when it breakers, I will just replace it with another one of my stands and I still think the purchase is worth it.

                            Included lightweight aluminum stand feels unsubstantial at first, but it's plenty strong, seems well-made. Background is a good size for portraits, and the package is easily portable, quick set-up. Highly recommend, if need portability.

                              I bought this backdrop to use as a portable studio for shooting headshots. It collapses down and fits into a carrying case which makes it easy to transport from location to location. The only downfall is that the stand seems a bit flimsy, but it is lightweight and doesn't have to be really heavy duty to hold up the backdrop.

                                Good quality (as all my Savage products have been) portable backdrop kit. Black is pure black and white it pure white. Takes minutes to set up and you're ready to shoot. Lightweight and easy to carry.
