    My grey background arrived - thought I would post to show it can be done These are all SOOC, just resized in lightroom and converted to JPEG.
    Background is a "chalky" grey colour.

    Close to the original grey colour

    Darker grey background created

    Close to black (with some tweaking to my lighting setup I should be able to get that perfect black)

    White background

    All of these were created with the same background, moving lights around and changing apertures
