Here’s a peek into my very makeshift, continually evolving food photography setup. I took some time this weekend to organize some of the props I use most often, and they’re now stashed right underneath the trusty wooden board that serves as a backdrop for almost all my photographs.
Just so you know where I’m coming from, here is a “before” picture I shared this fall on Instagram. I used to take all my pictures outside on the balcony, but when it got cold, I moved my piece of wood inside and propped it up next to my kitchen window on top of the large cardboard box our trash can came in. Needless to say, it was not extremely sturdy. I had to put all the heavy things right in the middle to avoid having the whole thing fall over.
