The $5 Photography Trick

I learned this trick from Erin from House of Earnest at Go Blog Social and it blew my mind. Seriously. How can $5 up your photography game? Easy. Spend it on beautiful paper (from Paper Source or a craft store) and tape it to the wall. You now have a beautiful photo backdrop. An even better solution is to affix the pretty paper to foam board so you can set it behind whatever you are photographing without needed to tape the paper to your wall.

Here is a behind the scenes look at the technique:
