A short one this week. I just wanted to share a trick or a “hack” (ugh) that I use on photos to make them look sophisticated and on-trend.
It seems like every trendy Instagram photographer loves to take pictures of their breakfast, or their day planners on top of their nice marble countertops. But what if you don’t have nice marble countertops?
Well, those Instagrammers might not have them either, because there’s a whole industry of realistic looking photo backdrops. Sleek marble, rustic wood - you can create almost any atmosphere you want.
Just a quick search on Etsy brings up tons of results for backdrops of all sizes and patterns, like these.
I haven’t tried any of these backdrops, but I use something even cheaper: a marble patterned white board from Target. It has the right shiny finish and I love the way my minimal flatlay photos look on top of it. It was less than $10!
So there you go. Anyone can achieve this sophisticated look, in product photos or just for fun.
Stay tuned for another entry about flatlay photos.
