The other day I shared a quick DIY using washi tape.
Today, I want to show you how I made the "backdrop" for my DIY photo-shoot and that anyone could use for any kind of photo projects that need zero distractions in the background. I'm thinking Ebay items, school projects, scrapbooking entries... the possibilities are endless.
- *a white t-shirt from the Mister
- random electrical outlet with an outdoor cord plugged in to it
- Drape the Mister's t-shirt over the random electrical outlet with an outdoor cord plugged in to it which happens to be directly in front of the window.
- Start taking pictures.
I realize this sounds like a total joke but really it works!
The secret is getting a good window. The window in this example (which is just out of sight in the upper left of the picture) faces north so it gets pretty great light throughout the day.
By placing the tape, bracelet, glue combo on the back end of the "backdrop" (instead of up front, facing the light) I got some fun shadows to play with.
You could get different looks depending on where you placed your own objects.
Hope this helps with any photo projects you have in your future!
*Bonus points if the white t-shirt you use is ironed before you drape it. That first picture looks horribly wrinkly doesn't it?!?!
