ah, michelle, every time you post photos of the Atlanta temporaries, i have flashbacks of insane set-ups and break-downs... hope it was a good show!


Pro Photo in NW Portland has huge rolls of background paper...I think around 26 bucks a roll. I don't know how big you're talking.

If it's for smaller stuff, I've seen these cool little light boxes (white) at ritz camera at jantzen beach...It's like a little white tent you put your item in, with light pointing at it...the tent diffuses harsh light and gives your product a nice glow...they have them in store.

if you want a smaller roll of like butcher paper...try learning palace by van mall target.
