How Muslin Backdrops is Used Today

Muslin backdrops have been used for various purposes for a long time. Backdrops are very important in photography and cannot be ignored in order to ensure quality pictures. Many photographers trust backdrops made from muslin in setting up a studio. This is because muslin cloth can be used over and over again without getting damaged. Muslin can be dyed to any color or texture and it is easy to wash when it gets dirty. The secret is to steam the cloth before hanging to ensure that it does not wrinkle. Photographers usually place multiple backdrops made from muslin on one backdrop stand to allow flexibility in taking pictures.

Muslin is used in making backdrops for screens while making small backgrounds. The movies or television mainly prefer green or blue muslin for the screen. Muslin is a great material to use because it does not have sheen. In this case, the backdrop will not reflect light and spoil the screen or photo. The muslin material is very strong and therefore, it cannot be swayed in case of a breeze. It is very easy to paint muslin with the colors you prefer to make the studio great. The backdrops are thus very elegant and professional because of the quality that muslin provides.
The muslin material used in backdrops is light in weight and this gives it the flexibility to move around. Photographers or movie makers can easily use the same muslin material by moving it to different locations. It is simple and easy to store, clean and sustain for future use. The muslin materials for backdrops need to be washed with delicate detergents as well as lukewarm water. In this way, it will not fade the color and will remain strong. Muslin can be plain or with patterns depending on the kind of photos being shot.
The muslin material used for backdrops in the studio is very strong and durable thus, it does not tear easily even when manhandled. This is because it is made of loose cotton weave which makes it strong. The cotton used is very crucial in ensuring that light does not penetrate through the material. This is what makes it good for backdrops because objects or shadows behind the backdrops are not visible when using flash in photography. The material can hold paint, dye, ink and even print and thus it is good for classic styles or portraits.
The muslin fabric and especially that which is used in backdrops is relatively affordable to use. This is why muslin is used by designers for dress making. However it is good not to expose muslin to stains because they can be very hard to come out. The lightness of the muslin material makes it suitable for mood setting in screens and photography. This gives color and elegance to the play for a successful movie. Muslin is very popular in photography and screens because of its many uses and benefits. It is good to take good care of the material to ensure great photos and plays.

Problem with RAM notation specification...

Hi,

I am not sure if I have come across a minor bug in the OpenMx RAM specification. For some reason I cannot free up an element of the S matrix when fitting a twin sub-model. I have tried several different syntax variations (i.e., using the label name and specifically freeing the S parameter element) to free up the parameter, but for some reason the specified covariance parameter element is not being estimated and included in the OpenMx output summary. The odd thing about this is that when checking the S matrix specification, the parameter is set to TRUE. Is this a known bug?

Thanks,

--steve

This is not the appropriate

This is not the appropriate spot for this question. Please make a forum post about it instead. I will be deleting this comment soon.

To address your question, that is definitely not the desired behavior. Could you provide a minimal code example that produces the bug? Or some part of the script that does this? It's difficult to track down where the problem is without some example to work with.

Another thing to check for is re-setting a parameter. If you set a parameter to free=TRUE in line 15 of your script and set it to free=FALSE in line 33, then it will silently be free=FALSE even though you set it to free=TRUE initially.
