Product Photography

It's been a busy summer so far, as is evidenced by how quiet this blog has been, but I'm getting back into a schedule and have a lot of fun, new projects I'm looking forward to sharing with you!

I've lately been trying to improve my product photography, and my Etsy shops have been a great place to practice! A must for my serious ventures into product photography have been some professional vinyl backdrops. If you haven't yet heard of SwankyPrints, you must go check them out! I hadn't heard of them either until they were recommended to me in my search for that classic white peeling wood backdrop. This is seriously a fantastic shop! They have a huge variety of vinyl backdrops in a huge range of sizes for smaller products to large studio sizes for children, babies, and families. Plus, if you're slightly hesitant about trying them out for the first time as I was, they offer a coupon code for first-time customers, and then offer you more discounts for returning pictures they can use on the website. Top that with a high-quality product and top-notch customer service, and it makes a shop I'll definitely be returning to again and again! And did I mention how much I love vinyl backdrops? Unlike fabric backdrops, they'll allow me indulge my love of food photography too, and if there's a spill, no problem - they wipe off easily with water and a mild cleaner for larger spills.

Are you into product photography? If so, do you use backdrops and do you have a favorite source?
