All bloggers face the dilemma of photography.
Most of us aren’t aware, that photography is an inexpensive process. We think we require a lavish studio like this to capture pretty pictures.
This is certainly not the case.
One essential part of photography is background. You can find some of the best backgrounds lying around your house. So let’s see what objects in our homes can be perfect backgrounds.
Cushions: We all have nice cushions in our houses. The pictures below are taken on cushions. Try to use cushion with pretty patterns and colors. Leather cushions are my favorite! I also like the velvet ones.
Garments: I used my shawl for the pictures below. In all honestly, it’s a shawl I use regularly. And when worn simply, it doesn’t look anything extraordinary. But, it certainly makes wonderful background. Do iron the cloth before using it.
Table mat: Nice table mats can be very useful. It can be used for both product and food photography.
Chair. Chairs have nice leather cushions as well. Or, there will be a nice pattern on it.
Floor. If you have nice shiny marble tiles on your floor. Then use it. In the picture below I should have used a reflector. However, I love this look as well.
Sofa. Even if your sofa is of one color but has a nice texture or pattern, you can use it as a background.
To some of the ideas you might be like,”Oh, I knew that already!” However, some might have benefited you. At least, now you know, you just have to shop for pretty clothes and cushions. 😛
