I found some information on the internet on how to make a simple tabletop photo 'studio' (that can be used to photograph small handmade items and such
I am not a good photographer but I`d love to have good pictures, without a background. So I am using super cheap recycled materials that I already have in my house, to make one. Curious about if it will work (would be cool
) I`ll make pictures of it as soon as I can.
But I was wondering about some things and hoped that there would be some people here that know more about photostudios/tabletop ones.
The thing that I wonder about most is the white background and sides (all sides are white, except for one open side). The idea is that the white makes the lighting better, lamps can shine through it instead of directly on the item. But I wondered about what kind of material the background should be. Can this just be plain white paper for example, or should it be a special photo background?
What does a real photo back ground do?
I might have an old slide screen somewhere in my house, I could possibly use that as a background as well.
Any insight on what would be good material would be great
This is an example of one that is made by someone: (this is not my picture, found it on google images)
