  3. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a long-standing member, Just Dave.

    Dave Barker was a member of Talk Photography for nearly 10 years, and was a prominent member for most of those.
    A very warm, friendly and enthusiastic member, he spent the largest portion of his time on TP welcoming and helping others.

    I'm sure all visitors to this site will join us in thanking Dave for his unwavering support and being a large part of our community.
    Our thoughts are with his family and friends at such a difficult time.

    Hi

    I have seem some photographs where the subject is reflected on on the floor. Not a mirror reflection but more subtle than that.

    Either the floor is shiny or they have done soemthing in photoshop.

    Assuming it is the floor what sort of surface could have been used and where could you get it from?

    it's called perspex, sold by the sheets for retail fittings, stage productions, tradeshows, etc. look it up on ebay.co.uk there are a few sellers there, and also google it, one company is called www.theplasticshop.co.uk ... you can even buy samples from their HUGE range off their website for like only £5. But if you're going to get something over 4' in length or width, i'd highly suggest a depth of 4mm or more, as it will be very bendy! some people mount them to boards, but i just keep them loose and change them out for different shoots, by using them on a low table (about 2-1/2 feet from the floor) which gives perfection results in terms of background, etc.
    our studio has 5 of these in various colours (white, black, clear, emerald, red) around 6'x4' each, I seem to remember they'll set you back about £200each with the delivery, and with the thickness i recommended (really makes a hug difference).
    Highly recommend them, as you'll save tons of £££ on wasted background paper, and your models will be able to wear heels and/or any shoes without worry, as it just wipes clean!
    very high fashion and good for product work too.
