Make Better Photos: Wooden Table Top Backdrop


If you do your own product photography, you know that the key to getting a great shot is good lighting and clean backdrops. I love this double sided wooden table top prop. It’s quite clever, and perfect for photographing small items like cookies, cards and jewelry.

Make your table top any size you want, this is a DIY project after all. All the materials to build this can be found at your local hardware store.

This is a really easy and affordable way to give your photos a more dynamic and professional look, and best of all you don’t have to worry about things like wrinkles in a fussy fabric or paper backdrop.
