I have just signed a deal for my photography company to do portraits for one of my local schools prize day. The idea is that after they have received their prize they come into our studio in another room and have their photo taken with their prize, family, friends and teachers. We currently have white backdrops although I am not convinced this would be a good colour for a formal event. I am a big fan of the Lastolite range so have gone by their colours as a bench mark. I was thinking some form of grey (Shadow grey or Arctic grey) or light blueish (Heaven). What is normally used for these types of shoots and what would you recommend?
I am mainly looking at the paper backdrops since they are cheap and I don't expect to use them very much after this event. Our white backdrops are Vinyl so that they last longer.
