Savage 27 Thunder Gray Overview

Photograph people and products against a smooth, uncluttered background with this 9' x 150' roll of #27 Thunder Gray Widetone Seamless Background Paper from Savage. To facilitate even lighting, the surface of the paper is non-reflective and has a fine-tooth finish. In addition to photography, the paper may be used for events, decorations, banners, and more.

The paper density is 100 pounds, or 145 gsm, an easy-to-handle resilient thickness of 7.6 mil, and comes wound on a core with a 2.125" interior diameter. A plastic sleeve protects the roll in transit and can be saved to provide continued protection when the paper is not in use. The paper should be stored vertically to reduce the possibility of warping and other damage. Photographers often use clamps to secure the paper to a backdrop stand as well as tape to secure the paper to the floor if rolled out for full-body shots. The paper is acid-free and 100% recyclable.

Due to the manufacturing process, it's not uncommon for sizes to fluctuate slightly. In most cases the amount of fluctuation won't matter.

question

My 54 seamless background paper is curling along the left and right edges. What causes this?
Asked by: Donald
If you are referring to the corners of the background that is unrolled, that is normal. What most do is tape or use clamps to prevent it from doing that.If it a large part of the background it sounds like it could be humidity that is causing that. But to know for sure that is difficult to pin point.If you just received the background you should discuss this with customer service,Customer Service, you can email them at [email protected]<a href= http://bhphotovideo.com, target= _blank >bhphotovideo.com,</a> or call them after 9am EST at: 800.221.5743 or 212.239.7765Fax: 212.502.9426 or 866.521.7375Or you can come in to chat.

I am looking for 50% Gray. What color would be close to that?
Asked by: David
According to Savage Universal, while they have several gray tones that are very near neutral gray, none are exactly 50% gray (or 18% reflectance) and should not be used in place of neutral gray cards for white balance purposes. Also, do note that the way you light the background and your exposure settings can also affect the color gray perceived by your camera, and as seamless paper is a natural fiber product and is dyed in large batches, the color can vary ever so slightly from batch to batch. With all that in mind, their #74 Smoke Gray seamless background appears to be the closest to neutral, while the #70 Storm Gray seamless background would be the next closest, though it would be slightly warmer in comparison to Smoke Gray.

question

Which is a better all around grey backdrop color, Thunder or Fashion?
Asked by: Gretchen
Thunder Gray is one of the darker gray backgrounds. It is very good but for some too dark.#56 Fashion Gray is somewhat in the middle and that one does seem to be more popular. And the one that comes close to 18% gray is #70 Storm Gray.

What is a good size for a portrait photographer with a small studio?
Asked by: Gitty
Hi Gitty! The size you want to get will depend on how you intend to use it! If you are only doing headshots, 3/4 body shots or photographing children the 53" width would be perfect. However if you want to do any full body or group portraits, we recommend the 86" width. This is our midsize width that allows you to shoot full body portraits without compromising space as you may have to with the 107" width.
