- The sun floods the space with long shadows starting 30 min after sunrise. The window shadows go away 5 hours later. For those who prefer no light play we have curtains that will defuse the light (cut shadows) for soft bight light.
- Backdrop A - Beautiful light play in the morning. Recommend for natural light shooters all day long.
- Backdrop B - Brightest in the mornings in the 5 hour window. Recommend for photographers using flash photography.

If I can hear the paper rustling you're too close to backdrop. Any damage done to seamless paper backdrops will result in a charge of $5 per foot.
