This is such a deceivingly big backdrop (in a good way)!! It arrives folded up like a reflector and just pops out to a massive, sturdy backdrop with a ton of fabric attached at the bottom to lay out across the floor. I used it for a birthday party for a bunch of 13 year olds as a sort of "fashion shoot" theme and could easily fit 4 of them squished together on it, even got some of them sitting/laying on it. I knew I had a wall I could just prop it up against, and that worked famously! For that reason alone, I will be recommending and using this product again. I debated renting a stand, but you honestly won't need it if you can prop it up against a wall. It doesn't fold or buckle. The only down side is that it arrived with white fur on it and lots of fuzzies, which I had to Photoshop out because I didn't give myself time to clean it up...so BL could stand to clean them more thoroughly before sending it back out. Makes me wonder if it was even washed before I rented it? So if you're renting this backdrop, make sure to leave a little bit of time to maybe clean it up/flatten it out beforehand. The fabric does get a bit wrinkled obviously being folded up in the case. Overall a fantastic product for a great price (the shipping cost more than the rental!) but 1) be sure you have PLENTY of room to unfold it/set it up, believe it or not it can be done by yourself as well as taking it down (folding it back up is JUST like those large oval reflectors, fold like a hot dog and it just collapses into itself) **Take mental note if nothing else how it unfolds out of the case** and 2) leave enough time to set it up, possibly clean it and flatten it out. 3) Mine was set up on a hardwood floor so it was also pretty slippery, so maybe set up some double stick tape or tape the fabric down with black gaffer's tape. If you're debating this product, don't. It's quite an awesome alternative if you don't have a backdrop and you're traveling to a somewhat confined space (much less bulky/more maneuverable than stands and a pole). Happy shooting!
