I bought his for dance studio portraits, and it worked wonderfully. After receiving it I put it in the dryer for a steam cycle to work out the folds, and then rolled it up. The material was easy to work with and looks terrific as a background with colorful dresses, or just high-key black and white outfits. The texture and color pattern is very easy to clone and expand beyond the 10 ft. in post (I use content-aware fill, then blend it in with a photo of just the background to improve the appearance), just make sure you get everyone within the background to make life easier when doing so.

It is an ok backdrop, but I was disappointed in the quality of the material and that it was dirty. I thought it was new when I bought it but it had spots of dirt in a lot of places. For the price it was just fine but I was not overly impressed by it.

        Comments about Impact Reversible Crushed Muslin Background (10 x 24', Charcoal/Smoke Gray):

        I bought this since it was relatively affordable in comparison to others I've seen. It packs away pretty well for such a large backdrop. It seems very sturdy so far and doesn't feel like it'll fall apart any time soon. Like most backdrops, it will get creases and wrinkles so be sure to be prepared for that unless you're setting it up in a location where you don't plan on breaking it down. The recommended stand (also from Impact) works great with it and seems to hold it up without strain. Whether it's your first or a replacement backdrop, I don't think you'll be disappointed with this one!

                It's too crushed. But it is big, sufficient, light absorbing, does the job

                I needed a huge backdrop for dance photography, this is definitely it. The texture is perfect and looks great in photos, and seems super durable. It's reverisble too which is a bonus!

                  Nice quality and great results - the comments regarding the dark vs. lighter gray is spot on - I wish the front to back where a bit more distinctive.Great shots!

                    I used this to shoot portraits for a military ball and it was great! It was a little hard steaming all of the wrinkles out from shipping since it's so large, but after that it photographed beautifully.

                      I'm using this for photographing artifacts. I like the texture and two gray tones.
                      Still trying to iron out straight creases which are left from folds left from being in packaging.
                      Obviously don't know about loggevity of the product yet.

                      It worked for what we needed it for, but it had a very bad smell to it. Laid on the equipment simple enough just a bit bulky for what we needed it for, but versatile.

                          We use it as a background for some of our photography - mostly portraits.
                          The fabric is dense enough that it blocks out background distractions and provides a clean, neutral background for individuals and small groups. The 24' length allows you to carry the background from behind the subject to the floor below and forward, creating a seamless background, if needed. This is a great tool for all but the most formal setting.
                          The only drawback is the sizing. You can feel it come off on your hands and see a little on the floor every time you use the cloth. I think I might try rinsing it.
