Backdrop Photo Tip

A couple of weeks ago we got our family picture taken for our Christmas cards! I was lucky because it was still warm enough to take photos outdoors. However, it has gotten much colder since then and I'm sure many of us will be taking Christmas photos INDOORS!!!

So, if your house is like mine and you have less than ideal backgrounds in your home for a good backdrop, here are some ideas you might be able to use to give your photos that professional look.

Backdrop ideas to try:
fabric shower curtains
wrapping paper

All of these ideas should give you a wide variety of different patterns and textures to play with. You probably want to stay away from anything too glossy. Also, if your background is a little too busy you can adjust your aperture to a low value so that the background will be more blurred and less distracting in your photo.

I hope you have fun using some of these backdrop ideas in your own photos!
