    Hi all,

    I've been getting into photography quite a bit since getting a Nikon N65 awhile back. Primarily still doing snapshots, but they're higher quality.

    I'd like to get into doing some B/W portraiture, and possibly nudes. Either way, I'm looking for good, cheap fabric for a backdrop. I'm thinking just basic black, and something that will just absorb light, so that I can simply have the subject on a black background.

    My thought is velvet, but I would think it can have some reflective properties, due to it's texture. I found this for only $5.00/yd, and it seems pretty good to me:

    Any advice? I searched the forum, and also found limited information on cheap backdrop ideas...
