  2. Your props are so gorgeous! In the summer I do more food photography and I use a piece of plywood and place it on some Rubbermaid containers and then just change the fabric I place on top to match the plates, etc. I also use white foamboard for photography of items for my Etsy shop. Sometimes I use wall paper. I want to get other backdrops/textures, but haven’t taken the time yet. I do have leftover tiles from home projects that I plan to use too. 🙂

  3. oh my thank you so much for the shout out 🙂 That was sweet of you, and I really enjoyed this post. you got me excited about collecting photo props! Christina

  4. Your photos are beautiful, as always! You have inspired me to find some better backdrops – time to scrounge around a bit! Thanks!
    Have a lovely weekend,

  5. Your photos are always so pretty! I should begin using props! Hope you’ll come share at AMAZE ME MONDAY, link goes up Sunday evening!

  6. You know – my kitchen table, red table and odds and ends end up being by backgrounds. Oh, and a lace table cloth. Not too original – and sometimes I think I need to take more time w/that …

    Enjoyed your post.

    Happy Pink Saturday!

  7. I don’t have a lot of props for pictures, but you’re right they are really good to have, and your pictures always look great. I really like those bottles.

  8. Props are always a question for me. I love them but am concerned they will take away from my picture of my Hand painted glasses . I do love the photo with the white picture. I will try to tweak my photos to be more like yours.

  9. Blogging does make you think more about your photos as they are often what get the most attention. Like you, I’m working on improving. Hmmm, my props could stand some improving.

  10. Yes, you might see certain items again and again. It’s like playing Barbie for big girls! Love your props, especially the ironstone pitchers.
    Love it!

  11. Love all the pretty photo prop ideas! Thanks for the suggestions – I should really pull out some fabric. Never thought of doing that.

  12. Loved this post! I also use a bunch of different books for my back drops! Each time I go to a Dollar Tree, I pick up books in different colors and sizes. You can never have too many books and they make great photography props!

  13. Loved this. I am like that too, collecting all kinds of things for photography purposes. Cool idea the wood backgrounds. I found a cool red peppers, etc… cutting board to add to my kitchen photography collection. I like to use different dish towels or place mats for mine. Although when I take photos of my food recipes, I get nice and close to the actual food and have a little of the background. I love my macro lens. Have you ever tried knitting dish towels for backgrounds? I did a few of those. Love vases. I’m on the hunt for pretty accessories to add to mine.

  14. I have a suitcase full of props!! So glad to know I am not the only one who does this! have a wonderful weekend, Katie!!

  15. Now that was interesting to see your ‘props’ for your photos. I don’t really have any other than trays, which I love, some linens and an old matlasse coverlet that I use on the dining table or the sofa. Oh I have white pitchers too. Well, I guess I do have some props!! They are just different from yours. 🙂 I got some good ideas from you though. Pamela

  16. Beautiful photos. I do have a ton of photos, but they are mostly of my kids and family stuff. Thanks for sharing and hope you have a great weekend, Katherine!! 🙂
