I prefer simply a suggestion of background pattern to eliminate the clinical stark black that I see so often in macro studio shots. The background sheets will be printed in focus, but I can increase the distance behind the subject to lose focus. I will print each background in several shades of darkness to use with different subjects.
I plan to use these outdoors as well to eliminate unwanted clutter behind flowers, cacti and other small subjects. I will need to make some sort of support for outdoor use.
