    Indoor shoot meaning in a studio or just indoor of some buildings?

    What will you be shooting? Models? Products?

    I guess the most important thing will be lighting.

    If you're in a studio, there should be strobes, so just need a tripod if you're doing product shoots.

    If you're not in a studio, I guess the best will be an external flash.

    OK, maybe you would like to google a bit. There are some info I found there and there's even a site which teaches you to DIY to save cost.

    Muslin or paper?

    thick simple cloth also can be used, but you have to source them yourself and get the desired dimensions...

    They use both actually...

    paper is more common as it's cheaper. Muslin is used normally when you need a specially coloured or textured pattern (these are often painted on by hand)

    Both have their cost.. u can find out more on their costs in some other threads or going down to the shop to inquire better,
