I shared on Instagram yesterday about my DIY Quick Photo Backdrop. It all started when Dustyn colored our back steps with chalk yesterday and I had the greatest idea…
DIY Quick Photo Backdrop
The only supplies you need are different colors of chalk, and a wood fence. I colored our wood privacy fence with the chalk and make a photo back drop. I didn’t do a ton just enough for some head shots. Wanted to make sure it looked okay first before coloring a bunch!
I think they turned out great and I will be taking more photos like this. So easy and you have so many options. You could do different color combos and patterns.
You can tell when he is ready for me to finish taking his photos. He starts giving me the side eye.
You could even just take some scrap wood pieces and nail them together to make a portable backdrop. Then just use the chalk colors you want and just wash off when done. I think it looks almost like chippy, old paint. Definitely looks a lot better then just a wood fence. It is so bright and cheery!
I am so glad that he still inspires me and that I actually picked up my DSLR and used it. Before this I had actually taken some other photos of him with my DSLR which I am sure I will be sharing soon.
If you are wondering what equipment and settings I used:
Nikon D600 with my 50mm f/1.4 lens
ISO 100 | f/1.6 | SS 1/400
