    Backdrop advice

    Ok I have a wedding this weekend and I am setting up a photo booth at the reception but I'm not sure if there is a suitable wall or backdrop I could use at the venue. Just after some suggestions, though I would prefer something smooth rather than crumpled as the subjects will be quite close to the backdrop. I was also thinking may be a darker colour might make shadows a bit less noticeable than a white background?

    Cheers

    I have been looking at getting something for home as a cheapy backing to hang from picture rails. I was hoping to get some darkish coloured velvet but finding an appropriate size is difficult. There are some package options on ebay, dont have the link but one I saw came with stands, 2 backgrounds and a bag to carry it all. Coupled with free p&h all for about $70 AUD.

    Are you doing waist up or full body shots?

    Hi Lincoln. Probably just above waist shots at this stage. Certainly not full body length.
