Photo backdrops can make or break a photo. Maybe you need some added texture or depth to your photo object- a backdrop can do that! Need some color to help make it pop? Or a clean, non busy background to keep the eyes on the main event- a DIY? These are 5 of my favorite backdrops to use- all but 1 are very inexpensive- less than $13! And, I even included a little DIY for you on how to make one!
Marble- ($9) An easy DIY hack! Marble is very heavy (and expensive), so instead of buying a slab for photos- I have a foam board (99 cent store) covered in marble contact paper– a cheap, lightweight solution. (also, you will have marble contact paper leftover to use in DIY projects 😉

These are not necessarily budget friendly, but I did get one at Home Goods for $10 so it is possible to find deals! And the Cost Plus I have linked has a copper handle and is only $15! (I want that one!)
While this is technically a photo prop, I consider marble boards the main background for most of my cocktail shoots.
My go to is my whitish cream tablecloth. I keep it wrinkly, it adds some texture. And I hate ironing with a passion. Win-win.
I have more backdrops but this is a beast of a post- so take it in, buy some marble contact paper and make a backdrop and a part two will be coming 😉
