I get asked all the time how I achieve my bright product photography. It all comes down to two things, lighting, and, the backdrop. This is the simplest DIY project you might ever do. It has two steps...ready? 1. Buy a piece of ply wood from Home Depot or Lowes. 2. Paint it white or beige.
That is it. Take your photos in a naturally lit area and then show off all of your hard work. My backdrop is about 26 x26 inches.
I have used this one piece of ply wood to make jewelry pop and food look heavenly. Occasionally I will add a piece of fabric or some other texture to give a little bit more depth to a photo. Here are a few of my favorite photos I have taken using my plain white wood backdrop:
I would love to hear other ideas for photo backdrops that you use!
As always, thanks for reading!
