Flotone Thunder Gray Overview

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 Thunder Gray Reviews

Fantastic! Spend the money and

Absolutely amazing! I went with the smaller size, but I kind of wish I would have upgraded to the larger one. It would have been a little easier to shoot with plus I assume the gradient would be a slower fade. So far, I haven't had any issues with scratching as many of the reviews stated. I use it for pottery and have been somewhat careful with it, but it's worked out just fine! I previously, I had purchased a much cheaper background, but there were wrinkles in it. Absolutely no comparison with this one. Spend the money and get this one!

Excellent backdrop. Well packed, inside a plastic sleeve inside the tube (inside a box). Arrived in perfect condition. Laid out on work table inside the plastic to remove the curl. Very happy with this product. They last about a year but that's because of scratches from being used so much. It's very durable. Also very fast shipping, all the way to CA!

I'm sure it's fine, but I apparently ordered the wrong one. I sold it to a friend rather than hassle with returning it.

Scratches easily. When I delivered images to the fine art jewelry client she said she wants fake graphic background.

Great background for product photography

This background is much sturdier than I thought it would be. It's PVC and about as thick as a piece of posterboard. I have it rolled onto a tube about 3 in diameter and it wants to hold that shape when unrolled so clamps at the bottom are a must. This backdrop combined with a softbox have really taken my woodworking photos to another level.

Perfect Photo Background

This background is perfect for photographing small pieces of art and other items that benefit from a background with a graduated color. The product is of excellent quality and the service provided was outstanding.

Exelent service!

For the larger size (43"67"), which measurement is the height? I am looking for one that is taller than it is wide, but the photos seem to show it as being longer in width. Thanks!
Asked by: Rebecca
FLOTONE dimensions are 43" Wide and 67" Long, so the larger dimension is the height. The graduations run vertically the length of the material. For additional information, please see the below link. If you have any additional questions that B&H can not answer, please feel free to call Argraph at 201-939-7722 or email. [email protected] Thank you for your interest in FLOTONE

It appears there is some blue in this backdrop, from photos people have posted. Is this true? Trying to avoid blue, just want black/grey/white tones in the paper. Still using my graduated grey/white BH backdrop from several years ago but it adds blue tones often. Thanks.
Asked by: Lin
There is no blue on this background , you can add blue gel to the light if you want to add blue to the background . In your case you don't need to .

Can you recommend a support device or system to hold the graduated background? I'm now just thumbtacking it to the wall.
Asked by: Edwin
I use large clips to attach the background to a support stand that I also got at B and H. I trimmed the background to size and so it wouldn’t be so awkward to handle.

will the surface scratch?does it roll up for storage?
Asked by: LOUIS C.
The surface is printed onto the plastic substrate and will withstand careful handling. Items to be photographed using this background should be handled and placed gently avoiding sharp edges or rough surfaces.Surely this is a requirement in all photography. I am extremely happy with my purchase.
