Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Using a paper roll, part of Video Gear: Lighting.
- Now Rich, both of us do a lot of photography…and the other day, I was going to the old camera store…to pick up a couple of things, - Yep.…- 'cause I'm always going to the camera store…to pick up a couple of things.…(laughs)…- Honey, I just really needed a new lens.…- And I noticed in this camera store…that I've never been to before,…they had a whole area where they had paper backgrounds…and some of these paper backgrounds were pretty thin,…kind of lightweight paper,…but other ones were heavy duty paper almost like card stock,…and it dawned on me then,…after I looked at the price of them…and the sizes they come in,…a paper background is a good way…to have a pure white backdrop or background.…
- [Rich] One of the things that's really common…in the world of photography,…and we have in our own photo studios here,…is to have a roll of white paper hanging.…The advantage here is that it's clean, it's simple.…You just pull down what you need,…and then after it gets all scuffed up during the shoot,…it's a piece of cake.…
