Hello again,
I've got some packshots to do that require a brick wall background. Rather than taking a hammer and bolster to my studio wall to remove the plaster does anybody know of a supplier of the embossed brick wall panels that you can get for theatrical and photography back drops?
I'm in London.
Thankyou for any advice.

Don't know your circumstances but if the product outlines are reasonably regular, would it be worth considering shooting on a plain background and montage on to a shot of a wall?



Look to camera, smile and sparkle. That's ace, ace baby!

How about buying some large polystyrene sheets from wicks b&q homebase and then buying a roll of brick wall wallpaper from the same place and fixing to the poly?

Hi All,
Thanks for your feedback everybody. I think I may send off for a sample of the embossed wallpaper and see how it actually looks in camera.
I'll let you know how well it works if anybody is interested.
Regards
Bitsoft
