It took so long for me to decide on a gray from all of the Savage gray color options. I was leaning towards "Stone Gray" but could not find an example anywhere on the internet. I decided to just go for it. The color was just what I was looking for. It works really well as a neutral backdrop for both color and B&W images. I will post a few examples from a recent shoot, just so there is FINALLY and example out there somewhere.

I have this product in white, gray, blue and pink, so I love this paper - something about this color though I don't like.

I adjust my white balance settings but can't seem to find the hue I'm looking for. Either too purply or too light. Not deep brown enough. Also, in some photos it came out looking a little splotchy, not smooth (see the zoomed in pic).

Great for headshots

Comments about Widetone Seamless Background Paper (#81 Rustic, 53" x 36'):

I am a headshot photographer in NYC. The "rustic" color Seamless has become one of my go to colors for headshots. It presents as a moody, warm tone, great for actors looking to showcase a passionate, emotional side. The quality, as always with the Savage brand, is very good. I highly recommend both the product and color for the reasons above.

I film YouTube Videos and I use this crisp background. I've purchased three paper backgrounds from this brand and they show up very well. I film with a SonyA5100 and ring light and it doesn't blur out the background.

Put this up in my apartment with some strobes, did the job so well. Depending on the lighting it was lighter (almost white) and darker (deep cream)

I like the product overall, but when I first untape it, the tape peeled off some paper which annoyed me. It's not a big deal, because I love the paper. Great quality, will purchase a bigger one soon

My favorite gray

Comments about Widetone Seamless Background Paper (#27 Thunder Gray, 53" x 36'):

I always get this gray. Fashion gray is much lighter and you could achieve something similar with white. Tech you could do it with this as well but I prefer this gray as it is a much darker tone. If you like a more contrasty image I think this is the way to go.

Comments about Widetone Seamless Background Paper (#22 Egg Shell, 53" x 36'):

I bought this paper because I photograph dogs mostly and I wanted something inexpesive that would be easily replaceable when it got dirty. This background is awesome! I was really surprised by its durability. I've used the same 10 feet of paper with multiple dogs and still have not had to cut it. I don't think I will ever use another background again, honestly. I need this in every color! Bye muslin, hello paper!

I had this seamless background shipped to Seattle and San Francisco for corporate headshots so I didn't have to carry it all the way from NY. Arrived on time, in perfect condition and worked great!

Sufficient Background Paper

By DelMar_Photog

Verified Buyer

Comments about Widetone Seamless Background Paper (#01 Super White, 53" x 36'):

I docked it a point as it does not seem as uniformly flat as the black roll that I got recently. It is however a good solution for a small studio (I got the 53" width).

Seamless Background Paper (53" x 36')

Comments about Widetone Seamless Background Paper (#60 Focus Gray, 53" x 36'):

This standard background color (light gray) arrived on time! and in great condition! Furthermore, it shipped for free because I ordered from Kelby 1. I can't wait to order a 107" roll.

I think the 107" would be preferable, since I had to use Photoshop to extend the sides of the background in several of my photos. Nevertheless, this is the color and the product to go with. You can do any tone from gray to black with it, and colors in any hue with a background light.

Good product and good price... and the shipping is right!

Comments about Widetone Seamless Background Paper (#37 Tulip, 53" x 36'):

I like Seamless paper. This Tulip pink is as close as the pink is. The black I purchased comes out grey in my photos. I usually have to edit the photos for the black to come out dark

A good item to have on hand.

Comments about Widetone Seamless Background Paper (#20 Black, 53" x 36'):

I recently photographed some sculptures for a local artist, and decided to photograph against a black background. This paper was ideally sized for this application. To create a sweep you'll need a background support system or a rod and light stands. The width would be adequate to photograph tabletop objects, head shots, or couples. My only reservation is that the black is not very light-absorbent, so you'll need to control the lighting carefully (or spend time in retouching) if you want a pure black background. it's easy to end up with a medium gray if your strobes spill onto this paper.

Purchased at $29.99. Next day it was $27.99. Ask for an adjustment. Deducted one star for this.

As an amateur it works well for me. Don't have much experience with what a better backdrop would do, but this is fine for our application. We use as a backdrop for taking pictures of merchandise to display online.

Clean Backdrop

By DelMar_Photog

from San Diego, CA

Verified Buyer

Comments about Widetone Seamless Background Paper (#20 Black, 53" x 36'):

The color of the paper is matte and uniform. The 53" width works well for my small studio. A much cleaner solution than fabrics I was using for my backdrops (and not ironing to get the wrinkles out of said fabrics).
