I'll have to make sure The Chair makes an occasional appearance this fall, if only for variety's sake. The light is great at one part of our balcony, but the background is a rather unpleasant yellow (though, when mixed with the clay red of the rest of the complex, the overall effect is rather nice). I'm seriously considering purchasing some plywood and painting it white and setting it up against the wall. Or maybe I'll paint it something other than white. I guess I could paint both sides different colors, again for the sake of variety. Hrmmm...I'm liking this idea. Need to bounce if off Mrs. Claghorn to make sure it's on the acceptable side of eccentric.
Does gray make for a decent background color (given that I often wear gray trousers)? @thefoxtooth, I choose you.
I think we ought to ask Jason Jules what he thinks...
What you probably ought to do is get a closet bar and a shelf bracket with a bar cradle, then get yourself a roll or two of seamless paper. It comes in 9' rolls, but any good photo supply will cut it down for you on the bandsaw. Your choices will then be nearly infinite.
i think my grey one is the same as the one Drake's used here.
