White Boards | Photog Friday

If you are a creative or a visual person, then chances are that you LOVE Instagram! You can just scroll and look at photos of people, their lives, and pretty things! As a wedding photographer, I strive to photograph and post pictures of my couples and wedding related items, but I used to struggle when it came to items!Diana Gordon Photography, photo

I used to truly struggle when I wanted to post pictures of items like my planner or a coffee mug. I am not a product photographer, but after learning this trick I now can share clean, crisp “product” images on Instagram.

The simple trick that changed my Instagram game was using white presentation boards! I know it seems so simple! I use three white boards to use as a background, backdrop and a reflector. You can purchase white boards almost anywhere-Target, Walmart, etc.

Find a spot in your home with great light, and set up your white foam boards – one board on the floor, one as a backdrop, and one as a reflector (see images below).

The white boards give you a clean background to shoot just about anything! Posting on social media, make sure to use items that represent your brand!
Another very helpful way to use white boards is photographing objects for other small businesses! (I am a big fan of collaboration and supporting other small businesses!) Check out Deep Creek Clothing for secondhand clothing!
I can’t wait to see the different ways you use a white board for your business!
