Flotone GFT409 overview

  • 1Description

This 31 x 43" Thunder Gray to White Graduated Background from Flotone is made of PVC material with smooth gradation that affords interesting lighting effects. In a few minutes, a photographer can achieve beautiful effects that would take hours with lights and single-tone backgrounds. Each sheet is individually handmade to achieve a silky matte, non-glare surface.

The material and colors do not absorb water, so they can be used with ice cubes, fruit, flowers etc. They can be cleaned with a mild soap solution and soft cloth, making Flotone reusable.

Flotone GFT409 reviews

Graduated Background (Thunder Gray to White, 31x43") is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 94.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Years of bad photos, turned around by this one simple thing I've been trying to figure out how to photograph my ceramic sculpture for years, tried so many different backgrounds. This thing makes it perfect every time. I just taped it to the wall in my garage. Only using the reflected light from outside, I hung a sheer white sheet on the light side to soften the reflections, and used a tripod. The pictures are perfect, and the best part is NO photoshop, this is going to save me hours! It does scratch easy, so be careful. But, all photo backgrounds are fragile. I will probably eventually buy the pop up light tent to put it in, to erase all reflections on my shiny sculptures.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from scratches scratches scratches I use this product as part of my art documentation business and while it does make a great background it comes out of the box scratched, no matter how careful you are and I spend more time retouching the background than I do anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improved my pottery photos by 80%! It is unbelievable how this background improved the way my handmade pottery photos come out. The quality of the background itself is top notch. The shipping was very fast and I don't have one bad thing to say about the product or B&H. I see myself as a customer for life! Jay JLW Ceramics

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great effect, fragile product The photos of ceramics I did using this background turned out beautifully. Other reviews I read mentioned how easily this background scratches, and they weren't kidding. Even having been warned, and therefore very careful, about halfway through my 30-piece shoot I discovered a very noticeable scratch in the dark part of the background. I was able to retouch it easily in post-production, but it is frustrating that I now will have to do that retouch with every photo using that background from now on. I used this background in a 28 light tent, and like other reviewers, had to cut this background down to make it fit cleanly. It does like to keep rolling, so I used clips and weights to keep it in place. At the moment, I don't have a better solution for a nice, clean background that provides the depth that this product does, but if I do, I will use something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Graduated Background - Thunder Gray I bought this background for photographing my husband's wood turnings. Though much a novice in the photography arena, I have been extremely pleased with the outcome of the photos I have taken using this background. I still have a little bit of work to do on the lighting aspect, but the background is beautiful. I love the sturdiness of the material and the smoothness of the gradation. I purchased the background based on another user's review (somewhere on the Internet) that specifically noted that they were an experienced photographer . . . and found the Flotone product superior to other manufacturers. I would definitely recommend this item to anyone else looking for a flawless gradated background.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is exactly what I needed! Why didn't I know such a thing existed! I am a potter. This is the perfect backdrop for photos of my work for submitting to shows or for my website. I've been trying to manually adjust my lighting to look like this....and it's just too much work and never turns out as nice! This background takes almost all the work out of taking a great photo of my artwork!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for I take photos to post on my Etsy and I wanted a graduated background that would be easy to use in my set up and not too expensive. The material is sturdy and the background is perfect for my needs. As other reviewers have noted it is possible to scratch the background, but I was able to open the package and set this up in my home made light box with no damage. The photos I have taken with this background are great - very happy with the outcome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bought a new size of a great product I already own two large Flotones and needed to buy a smaller, more portable one. The price is great, and as long as you are careful with your items (the backdrop will scratch if you are not careful), it should be a once-and-done purchase. I photograph pottery and the Flotone backgrounds totally eliminated the need for me to construct and use a soft box. It's a quality product that is difficult to find anywhere other than B & H.
