    I'm trying to take portraits of my little ones and I'm looking for a backdrop cloth that will stay in place. I have 3 under the age of 3 and just as kids at that age, they love to scoot, grab, and wrinkle the cloth I have them sitting on.

    I've setup shots in the breakfast room which gets a lot of natural light but has tile flooring. To try & keep it cheap I bought some cloth from a fabric store. I've tried taping it down, but that doesn't hold very long. Is there a good way of keeping it secure or a background product that won't move as much?

    Thanks!

    You can buy a roll of non-slip rubber mesh. It's used for keeping carpets and rugs from sliding around.

    You should be able to find it at Walrmat, Kmart, or some similar place.

    That's a good idea. Curious as too how large a single sheet is.

    The roll is probably 8-10" wide and 500ft. You'll have to just create strips.
