I dont know about cheapest, as I havent really shopped about. But I always buy from Calumet. There service is always fantastic!
thanks MJ for that but which white do i go for lol
I used to use paper rolls all the time (mostly arctic white!) but I was going through so many I finally invested in a vynil (sp) roll. Its great as you can just clean off the marks after each shoot. Costs a bit more but is worth it in the long run I think The one I got was just under £200 x
Dont know how viable this is. I did see a youtube video recently where the photographer used a large sheet of vinyl flooring. It had been turned over and painted white. The advantage being that when it got dirty, you just paint it again.
Might be a bit of a problem with the weight and depends if your background supports can handle the weight.
The white I use is artic white. However.......I have to say my fave background is a grey paper from calumet. Grey is great as its easy to colourize on layers and masks etc in photoshop, enabling you to change the colour of the background to whatever you want within reason. Also if you have the right kit, you can over expose the grey paper and make it white. Also, for you attention, the lastolite hilite tent is great. I used this tent for my picture 'free'. Its worth a look The tent not my pic!
Thanks all, Arctic white has been ordered................
