Video: If you’re looking to take slick photos of small items, whether they’re toys, product shots or things you’re looking to sell online, it’s pretty easy to make a little photography studio using nothing but household items.
This video from COOPH shows what you need to make your little photography studio for small, medium and large objects. Like any photography it really comes down to controlling the lighting and the backdrop at different scales. At the small end you can make a simple light diffuser with baking paper and curl a large piece of paper for a seamless background. You can scale the same basic concept up with larger rolls of paper, and aluminium foil can act as a light reflector in a pinch.
Going a bit larger, you might want to make a rudimentary flash diffusers with any thin semi-opaque plastic container fixed on your camera’s flash. Watch the video for more ways you can use household objects to improvise a photography studio of your own.
