I was asked to show how I set up the vinyl back drops for pictures. Here it is using a couple of different examples.
This is where all the photo magic happens! I have a dresser in our room in the corner. A HUGE, south facing window is off to the right. The wall behind the dresser sports many, many, many, many holes from my tacks I use to hold up my backgrounds. The white wood back drop is a big one I bought and ended up cutting in half. The top half is hung on the wall making sure the lines are straight. (It's upside down in this picture. Oops.)
The other half of the backdrop is laid over the dresser and the edge pushed back behind the dresser. I make sure the lines are all straight.
You can see my umbrella light off to the right. I have two of them. I switched it to the other side to take the actual picture and then switched it off because it blew out the details in the boards. There is also another light which sits on top of my DH's dresser off to the left.
I place my items depending on what I want to happen in the background. If I want the background blurry, I pull the item close to the front of the dresser. Background nice and sharp, the item goes towards the back.
Light on DH's dresser with a panel I cut from a light tent I bought. Reuse and repurpose! I point the light at the object on dark days and up towards the ceiling if I just need some shadow fill on brighter days.
Finished pic after a touch of editing. Up on Etsy right now!
Grey, canvas textured back drop and white board backdrop. The silver wine glasses were shot using this set up. (LOVE it! Shooting shiny stuff sucks but this was super easy!)
Another set up using a brown wood and a textured white/cream wall piece.
LOADS OF FUN! The rest of my order will be here this weekend! I'm soooooo excited!
And there you have it! Super easy! :)
