Re: Karlu Background

Grip the edges and give a good twist! This works for the background as well!

The only flaws mine has are a few off white markings on the white side. TBH if you place the subject about a meter and a half in front and use a wide aperture it's hard to notice, but even then 2 minutes with the clone tool will sort it out. The black side is unmarked.

Utter some ancient words of power at it whilst kicking the sodding thing, your customers will take pity on you and attempt to fold it correctly (well at least my grand kids did )!

Re: Karlu Background

Right heres your lesson for today.

Lay the background flat on the floor.
Fold trail up towards the middle.
Take both outside edges of the background on the other end from the trail.
Twist the right hand to the left so that you buckle the background in the middle. The bottom should start to twist in the other direction, if it does not then you have it upside down. The plastic rim will have a memory in it. So turn over and try again.
Once you get it to buckle push forward gently and it should start to form 3 circles, you may now need to tuck the trail in and forse the curle to happen in the way you want.

I can get one down and bagged in 30 seconds on a good day when the wind is from the west and sun is high in the sky. Otherwise it normally takes 3 mins to get it to fall right. May take 3 or 4 attempts.

Have fun.

Good luck with your mission and this message self distructs in 5 seconds.
