I know it has been far too long since I lasted posted here. One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to become more active on this blog. So I thought I would kick off 2016 with a super, inexpensive backdrop tutorial. Let’s face it, when we sell online the pretty photos are the ones that get noticed first. The internet has become a visual medium. I waste so much time looking a beautiful photos on t Pinterest and Instagram. So I have decided to step up my product photography game. I get the craziest ideas when I’m trying to go to sleep at night. Last night, as I’m about to drift off I came up this idea. Although, I’m sure someone out there somewhere has already thought of this.
This tutorial is super easy and it only cost me $2.00. I picked up two items from my local Dollar Tree. I purchased a mounted poster board and a roll of Toile contact paper. That’s it. You just peel off the backing on the contact paper and apply it to your poster board. But let me give you a tip. Have someone hold the contact paper on each end of the roll –as you apply the corners down first. Then take a dough roller and slowly smooth out the rest of the paper as you are applying it to the poster board.
