    Hi,

    I normally take pictues using a white background, however i would like to switch to a gray color similar to

    http://eluxury.com/browse/product_detail.jhtml?styleid=10918165&SectionID=9000


    So I would appreciate if someone could recommend and perhaps post a link
    to a seamless background simlar to the color used in the link above.
    (Preferably someone who sells it in a size that would not be humongous as it will be used in a simple white box)

    Any help appreciated.

    Go to the camera store. They should have a swatch book of available paper or fabric materials.

    Awww man. I hate how cheap you can get your equipment for.
    £50(so about $100) to get colorama here. Doh!

    It's all how you light it. If you give enough light to a grey background, it will be white. If restrict the light hitting it enough, it'll be dark grey, or even black.
