I have been playing photographer for about as long as I can remember having any sort of camera. Then last year, I got my first SLR camera for my birthday! So over the last year, I have read multiple books from the library, scoured photography blogs, and taken a couple light classes. I have a lot to learn still, but I love it! Photography is so fun and creative and beautiful! So here’s my deal now, I’m too
cheap frugal do it myself minded to pay someone to take my kids pictures. I really want to do it! I have a decent camera and all! What I don’t have is a lot of experience or a proper studio. That’s where this post comes in! I’m going to show you how I made my own photo backdrops, on the cheap!
This one is a water heater box. Any large piece of cardboard would work!
I literally taped the bead board wallpaper to the cardboard, then cut a banner using lots of different papers and strung it with bakers twine. And Ta-Da!
So like any 5 year old photo shoot, there are lots of blurry, too silly, or too wiggly pictures; BUT there are also these!!:
While I realize I am no pro., I’m still pretty darn happy with the outcome : )
