I have used the product with location group and full legnth people shots. I might occasionally use it for products. The price is resonable. People mentions the wrinkles or folds. Muslin is "supposed" to wringle use it. As for the folds from shipping- I threw it in the dryer with a wet towel. Be sure the towel is of like color or a "rag"- some of the color may transfer to it and other stuff. The color of online photos is relatively close. I will likely add a full legnth 12' rod pocket for wider shots. Light weight, I was using it with flash and some backside sunlight showed through. I could have boosted my shutter speed a stop or two and solved that.

After spending so much money to have this bought and shipped from the US to Trinidad I really expected better.I am still trying to figure out what part of the material is "Sky blue" and what part is "Aqua." If it did not cost so much I would really send it back. The colour is nothing remotely close to what is advertised however the manufacturer has clearly stated that "Actual color may vary between productions" which of course means you have no recourse for terrible advertising. If BH is serious about customer satisfaction they should ban this product. In any case.....one side is a some deep blue colour and the other side is just.....well the other side of the material with some washed out colour. I am not too sure how to use it....maybe I can use it as a very expensive lining for my dog to sleep on.

Half impressed

Comments about Impact Reversible Muslin Background (10 x 12', Sky Blue/Aqua):

This is not a true two sided muslin. This is a tie die blue muslin where some of the ink bled through the backside so they called it aqua. The blue is deep and rich. The aqua looks like a dirty sheet.

    A good product

    By NJohnston Photography

    from NYC

    Comments about Impact Reversible Muslin Background (10 x 12', Sky Blue/Aqua):

    This background is just fine. It's reversible, feels durable, and the grommets make it easy to hang. The color discrepancy is slight and, in my opinion, acceptable. It's a little expensive for what it is, but it does the job it's supposed to do.

      Comments about Impact Reversible Muslin Background (10 x 12', Sky Blue/Aqua):

      I wasn't a big fan of the lighter color (which is lighter than pictured and the color variations are more distinctive), but the darker color is great and doesn't look too splotchy. The cloth is thick and doesn't reflect light and you can't see through it. I expect it to last a very long time. This was a really good value compared to many other backgrounds.

      It came in a nice plastic zippered bag. Needed to be steamed to remove wrinkles before it could be used.

        Comments about Impact Reversible Muslin Background (10 x 12', Sky Blue/Aqua):

        My *only* gripe with the muslin is that if you fold it not so perfectly it tends to hold creases relatively well. That being said if you let it hang for just a little while they will fall out on their own. This is a very durable backdrop that so far has survived indoor/outdoor shoots as well as a few animals.

        9/10 would purchase again.

          Comments about Impact Reversible Muslin Background (10 x 12', Sky Blue/Aqua):

          I have been using this backdrop for Head shots, still and pet photography. I find this color to be very appealing to the models I have shot with no shadow throw. Being on the budget that I am, it helps the wallet to have it reversible. I would also like to mention that I found the grommets to be very useful while doing shows where I was allowed to hang my backdrop as well as my website/photography sign.

          I like the color and the overall reversible colors but the material did have some weird black spots on it and the material is really thin. Overall pretty good though,

            Comments about Impact Reversible Muslin Background (10 x 12', Sky Blue/Aqua):

            This is a nice heavy duty Muslin background great for portraits. The color that I received is A LOT lighter than the color in the image, so I won't be able to accomplish the low contrast shots that I was looking for (I mostly shoot people of color). The reverse side of the cloth is a good usable color, and definitely different than the front side, but in reality it looks a lot like the lighter underside of some blankets. Maybe I'm being picky though because I definitely planning on using that side, maybe even more often than the main side since the main side may not fit the skin tone range that I work with as well as I had hoped. Great product, but it needs a better picture.

            I have used the product with location group and full legnth people shots. I might occasionally use it for products. The price is resonable. People mentions the wrinkles or folds. Muslin is "supposed" to wringle use it. As for the folds from shipping- I threw it in the dryer with a wet towel.

            I guess you can consider this to be reversible if you want to use the washed out back side of your backdrop. The front side is a nice deep blue color.
