Backgrounds for Portraits


What kind of backdrops are used in photo studios (like in the mall ... Picture People, Kinderfoto)? The white backdrop isn't muslin and it isn't vinyl. It kind of looks like paper, but it has a glossy finish on it.

  You might find some you like here:
Denny Manufacturing Co.

Their flex backgrounds are great for portability.

  I used to work for picture people when they were still expressly portraits.
At that time what we used was actually either a white muslin or we had a white "window shade". It is a vinyl type material on a roller just like a window shade.

  It's probably white seamless paper on a roll. It looks glossy because of the shadows cast from the subject.
