    Hello all :)

    I saw a few photos (such as the one in the link - not my photo btw!) and I really like the backdrop. It looks to me like some sort of shiny bendable plastic? She is standing on it and it looks hard but shiny. Anyway, I am wondering if anyone knows what this is by any chance? I really hate my white seamless paper backdrop. It creases and gets dirty.

    Thanks!

    The trick to that, is to put down a reflective surface, either white or clear Plexiglas. That will give you the reflection.

    The backdrop can still be seamless paper, you would just need to blend out the end of the Plexiglas, if it's visible.

    Or you can buy/make an infinity (cove) wall.

    She's most likely standing on plexi.
