I thought it would be fun to talk about blog photo backgrounds today and what us bloggers use when taking pictures of our finished products – whether it be a craft project or food.
When I first started blogging I had no idea what all it would entail especially when it came to photography. Now don’t get me wrong, I still really have no clue what I’m doing when it comes to taking pictures. It’s definitely something that I continue to work on everyday. I thought I would just take pictures of my projects and they would look awesome. Boy was I wrong!! Who knew that backgrounds and props would play such an important role in blogging.
So today I’m sharing a few blog photo background ideas that I found and think are FABULOUS!! I’ve searched and searched for awesome ideas that have inspired me and I hope they inspire you too.
Now, I am not an expert when it comes to taking pictures for my blog but I have purchased a few backgrounds that have definitely helped make my pictures a little better.
I bought an 18 x 18 travertine tile from Home Depot and use it all the time as a background when taking blog pictures. I also bought a vinyl photography backdrop from Etsy for around $10 that I love and you can’t go wrong with scrapbook paper and beadboard paneling.
I’ve also used my fence and deck as great backgrounds when taking pictures and I’ve seen where people use fabric, placemats and napkins for their blog pictures.
Now I want to hear from you. Do you have a background tip or tutorial to share with us?
