I remember when I used to take my blog photos and just take a quick snap of the product – now it’s a long process where I always end up with my flat covered in little trinkets. I have a big box full of blog props that I’ve collected, because I need variety and I’m a big believer in the prop making the photo. I wanted to share some of the best blog props, as well as where I get them from…
Clothes (scarves work especially well)
Card (for background colour)
Flowers (both real and fake)
Magazines (Vogue always looks dreamy)
Mugs (look particularly dreamy blurred out behind a product)
I buy little trinkets as and when I see them for photos – I rarely go out specifically looking for blog props but tend to just stumble across them. I tend to find good bits in H&M home, Tiger and Oliver Bonas – these shops just seem to always have some dreamy pieces and I can never say no to a pretty dish. I also really like ebay for ribbon, amazon for cute little notebooks and etsy for stickers. I think supermarkets are good for notebooks as well – I always find good ones in Sainsburys.
Do you have any blog prop ideas?
