Using backdrops to style and photograph.
With special guest Sophie of Black Velvet Styling. Do you love photographing still life or food? Or perhaps you do lifestyle shots of your products for your website and social media? You’ve been looking at photography backdrops and would like to buy some but you don’t know where to start?
- Which sort – vinyl, wood, paper?
- Which size?
- How many do you need?
- Which ones would be good to get started with?
Black Velvet Styling is one of my favourite places to get backdrops from. They are affordable, come in a variety of sizes (up to A0) and the textures are beautiful and realistic. I also adore Sophie’s styling and photography! Sophie takes inspiration from travel, nature, junk and her styling work to offer you beautiful, handpainted and curated background designs. They are ideal for food, still life and lifestyle photography. I’ve invited Sophie along to talk to us about how to get started with photography backdrops and to share some of her styling tips. Sophie answers many of our questions too.
