I am just starting to try studio pet portraits and I have a question about something I haven't seen discussed anywhere: how do you get a muslin backdrop to hang and rest on the floor without lots of small creases? Do you stretch it out and weight all the edges? If so, how? any suggestions gratefully acepted. Thanks.

I use a steamer. The type that works with fabric that is hanging. You don't use an ironing board. I got mine at Bead Bath & Beyond. John Herrel Nikonian from South Carolina See the light, capture the essence!

Thanks for the replies. I don't have too much trouble with the portion of the backdrop behind my subject because I use a large aperture and position the subject as far away from the backdrop as I can. I'm more concerned with the floor part. Since I'm shooting dogs, the backdrop laying on the floor is unavoidable in the image.
