    FANTASTIC video. I've been wondering how to do this. Question: Do you reuse the same paper over time? How often do you find you need to refresh the paper (buy a new roll)? Thanks.

    Matt;Welcome to NYC. Although I am not a professional photographer, I have followed you for several years. When you started as a NIKON get started guy. I am a retired dentist and a dedicated amateur photographer. I would enjoy meeting you. Since I live on the UES of Manhattan it would be fun meeting you over a cup of coffee, Although I am partially disabled, I do get around by car or scooter and at 84 do love my photography.
    my email: dplmd18@gmail.com or 212-535-2431. I know you are a very busy man.If I practiced dentistry I would invite you as a patient. Retired at age 75 to enjoy my photography. When you find the time for a cup of coffee, lets meet.
    Regards,
    Dr. Mel Wilner

    Hi Matt, quite funny I just set up a similar style in my garage over the weekend. Mine would have been a bit cheaper with no posts just screwed the brackets to the back wall. However I did getheavy duty viynl Black and white at 3mts wide by 6 Mts long to good coverage plus similar pullie system. Total outlay AU$250.00 which included another portable backdrop stand and some cheap 2nd hand hot lights and brollies. Not to mention a set of Elinchrom 4it for AU$650.00 so a reasonable budgetogaphy setup for under a grand. So thanks for the videos keep up the good work. But I will be re watching take control of the light to make sure I get the best out of my setup.
