If you love to share images on social media, but don't have a wonderfully photogenic studio space or living room worthy of Homes & Gardens, the answer is to use a backdrop. It gets rid of untidy backgrounds and focuses the viewer on the subject. Whether you are photographing flowers, food or perhaps your hand made items, a simple backdrop can make all the difference. There are lots of ready made back drops available to buy, but with a little paint and a piece of board, you can create exactly the backdrop you need. And don't forget that you can paint the other side of the board too!
