Kambala High School Studio Build

The Kambala studio build is a very good example of a simple common studio design, it was designed to provide a space for students to work on video and photography projects, making sure all lights were able to be easily moved around but still kept of the ground for safety and neatness by using a ceiling track and pantograph system.

LightPro White Velvet Seamless Background Material

LightPro White Velvet background material provides a high-quality, non-reflecting surface with an exquisite, fine-tooth feel that’s ideal for creating smooth and even backgrounds in portraits, commercial photography, product photography, video photography, and much more.

This background is perfect for high-key style photography, the fibers spread the bright light around to make a perfect white background.

LightPro Jet Black Velvet Seamless Background Material

This background is perfect for low-key style photography and low-key filmmaking, absorbing light to give a deep rich black background. Remember to flag your lights and use egg-crate grids on your softboxes to reduce the light spill onto the velvet

With jet black velvet though, the way to make the black background black is by choosing the correct lighting and exposure to make it black. If it comes out grey, you are overexposing it. Try some negative exposure compensation. If you want to know what lights you should be using, we at Dragon Image can show you some premade kits or customise a kit for your needs.

Superior Stinger Green 2.72m x 11m Seamless Background Paper Roll

This Seamless green paper background is a great solution, especially for schools. The seamless paper speads light easily with very little post production needed to do your cut outs with. This makes the material perfect for Greenscreen Chromakeying.

When a section of the paper gets dirty, simply cut if off and roll down a new section. this also enables easy use of green material on the ground, something which you really cant do with velvet for fear of dirt.
