from Cassandra Jean:
I am trying to set up a small photo spot in my dog grooming shop and need to build a custom backdrop… my question is what type of material should I look for in a backdrop? What qualities do you all prefer? I have limited space so the dogs will likely be close to it and I won’t be able to just make it blur into the background very easily…
We answer the question in the episode.
