Blog Photography Props

Tuesday, 21 April 2015

I always find deciding on how to photograph things for the blog the hardest. Being a photographer I sometimes think people will be scrutinising at my images more as it is part of my day job. I usually chicken out of using too many props and just go for plain and simple. But yesterday I decided to have a play around with a few things I had lying around the studio.

I love my wooden backdrop, I have a few varieties and it nearly always works really well for the products I am photographing. I do like to mix it up a bit though, I hate clicking on the blog and seeing a stream of product images all taken on the same backdrop in the same way. 

I think fairy lights are always a good shout to liven up an image. These were Ikea lights and they have such an awesome variety at the moment so I would recommend a look. Then placing everything on top of a magazine and throwing in some sun glasses added in a bit of interest to an otherwise boring image of some mascaras (post coming soon btw). 

What are your blog photography prop must haves? Anything you think you could work on?
