    This nice fabric makes a good professional background. The two sides aren't that different, but the fabric overall is dark enough that depending on how you light it, it serves as a completely black backdrop or a dark textured grey backdrop. I like the subtle texture. Sometimes I use a deep colored spot from my speedlite on the center to add interest, and this backdrop has enough reflectivity for that.

    The fabric is not very thick, which is a good thing for transporting, hanging, and steaming flat. However, you'll want to hang another Muslin or other piece of fabric behind it to prevent seeing through, unless you're in a dark studio in which case this isn't a problem.

        The photo makes the one side look quite dark. It is not very dark. Other than that it is a nice backdrop.

          Backdrop - very good. Might have been packaged differently, but wrinkles are not that big a deal. Nice drop.

          Comments about Impact Reversible Crushed Muslin Background (10 x 12', Charcoal/Smoke Gray):

          I bought this for portrait photography. I liked the fact that the muslim pattern isn't overly crushed and doesn't compete with the subject. The pattern also reflects nicely with natural front lighting and with a back light behind subject.
          It is heavy so a sturdy frame is necessary as well as steaming before using.

                        The image shown greatly exaggerates the actual color difference between the two sides. Although the two sides are not exactly the same shade of gray, neither side should be described as "Light Gray". If you need both light and dark look somewhere else.

                          This will be used with a stand system that I bought at the same time. It will be used for Portraits, Events and group photos. I always enjoy the experience of buying from B+H as they are extremely customer orientated. I look forward to my next experience shopping online and If I make it to New York I will try to get to a seminar or training session.

                                The backdrop took a very long time to get here.
                                The contrast between the light gray and dark grey is almost non existent. Both sides looks dark gray, not very happy with the color.
