DIY Rustic Background for Photography | Work Wednesday

by Melissa on June 1, 2011

When your photo studio is located in your home , and there isn’t much space to play around with (granted we have a decent sized house for just the two of us, plus the dogs), having a collection of tables for food and product photography backgrounds isn’t the most convenient thing to do.

Having the same table background in your photos over and over again gets boring and repetitive for my blog readers, my clients and well, me.

So, enter the stand in wood tabletop. This is great because for around $20, you get two different table backgrounds. Not only is this an inexpensive way to add some variety to my photography props, it’s also easy to create a few of these table background props and have all sorts of colors, textures and stains. The possibilities are endless.

Paul and I made this into a fun little weekend project. He got to use his power tools, and I got to paint.

For step by step instructions and a materials list, visit the full blog post here.

Here are some photos taken on the new table background:
