Beginning to plan my first studio setup...
I have now decided on getting the Bowens Gemini kit (two 400 J heads + umbrellas). I also want to get some backgrounds, but they seem to come in several different options (paper rolls, vinyl, canvas, muslim etc.) and at varying degrees of expense.
I am thinking of starting with one black and one white backdrop for high and low key portraits. What would you recommend for a beginner in terms of these backgrounds? Is it worth the extra expense to get vinyl or would paper be a good choice when starting out? Are cloth backgrounds difficult to look after and keep clean and crease free etc.?
Thanks in advance for any advice.
