Flotone GFT609 overview

  • 1Description

This synthetic PVC material has a beautiful, smoothly graduated pattern to provide interesting lighting effects. In a few minutes, a photographer can achieve effects that would take hours with lights or single-tone backgrounds.

Each sheet is individually handmade to achieve a silky matte, non-glare surface.

The material will not absorb water, so it can be used with ice cubes, fruit, flowers etc. It can be cleaned with a mild soap solution and soft cloth, making this thunder gray, 43x67" Flotone Graduated Background reusable.

Flotone GFT609 reviews

Graduated Background - 43x67" - Thunder Gray is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 55.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Background I bought this background to photograph my porcelain pottery. I had a professional photographer and she just kept commenting on how much of a difference the background made. I got the images a couple days ago, and they look great. I really feel the background makes the product shots look very professional. I highly recommend it. The only problem I had was that it does scratch easily. This isn't a problem though if your product is typically placed in the same spot as the scratch will be covered by the piece. I will say that having read reviews for other backgrounds first it seems the scratching problem is not specific to this one, but really to the paper backgrounds in general.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed. With such great reviews I was looking forward to this backdrop. I can live with the fact that it is very unruly and wants to curl up. I just use duct tape to hold it in place. Painters tape wasn't strong enough. I am very disappointed that I am so gentle when placing items on and off this background yet it still scuffs and scratches so easily and the dirt won't come off. In the last few days I have probably used it for about 100 items and it doesn't look so good. A mr. clean eraser really helps but isn't magic. And setting the camera on this is a BIG mistake. It will leave a black scuff. I figure I will get shots for another 100 items before I need to trash it. The shots are great but I don't think this is worth $70 when there are other grey backgrounds in vinyl.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Quality, hard to use This is a quality backdrop that I used to photograph ceramics. I have used it for one photo shoot and was really pleased with the results making the shots look quite pro. It simplifies the whole process of lighting. The drawback are that it takes a bit to hang it and get it set just right, especially since it likes to roll back up. It picks up dust, specks, lint like nobody's business and I spent a fair bit of time in post processing removing these (worse on the shots taken later). I didn't get any scratches but only used it twice so far. It does the job for a pretty reasonable price and sized big enough to do some decent sized pieces. Just be really careful to keep it clean (and away from pets!)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Backdrop for my LiteCube While I am basically a wildlife and landscape photographer, to help a friend I recently decided to get into studio, still-life photography. I selected the Flotone graduated backdrop because I wanted something more durable than a paper backdrop. It has already proven to be a great choice, and the Thunder Bay color is exactly what is called for in taking pictures of pottery and jewelry. I cut it to fit my light box, and used velcro hook and loop fasteners to keep it in place. I have not yet noticed any negative aspects of this product, and would highly recommend it to others.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality, poor service I bought the background for product photography, and used it several times for the last 30 days. The PVC background scratches very easily, and I used it with caution every time. I also bought it, since it can be cleaned, however, after cleaning streaks appeared and do not come off. I've contacted B&H about returning it, and had been transferred from specialist to specialist three times before I gave up. I've been a happy B&H customer for several years, and am really disappointed this time as far as product quality and service. Not recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is the best background I have I use the graduated background to photograph my sculptures. The gray color is best because it is neutral and doesn't distract from my work. The graded background gives a sense of depth to the photos. I also like the fact that the material is water resistant so I can wipe it down with a damp cloth when it gets dirty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Maximizes my low-budget lighting system. I use this background to document my portfolio of ceramic work. I've normally set-up a fairly complex system to allow my low-budget lighting fixtures to provide a smooth, graduated background to my pieces. In addition to helping with that goal, the Flotone ground seems much more durable and hopefully will be easier to clean minor scuffs from than the paper backgrounds that I have used up over time. Although I have only used the new Flotone ground for a month, so far I am pleased with the visual advantages.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The background worked perfectly I photographed all kinds of ceramic pieces for a potters' guild on this background. The results were terrific! The width and length easily accommodated each piece and the subtle gradation of the background enhanced the look of every image.
