One of our most popular posts was the ‘a bed is not always a bed’ – where we show you a simple way to add a bed to your studio set up using a duvet, some pillows – and in this case, a backdrop that looks like a headboard!
Here’s another ‘behind the scenes’ that you can pin to your inspiration boards for easy reference!
I tend to stick to neutral colours, but you can mix n’ match your throw pillows and duvet colours for a variety of looks!
You can see the duvet is directly on the floor, so there is no worry about a child/baby/toddler falling any distance. I have my subject a coupe feet from the background so I can get nice bokeh on the backdrop.
Settings with my Nikon D3s and 50mm 1.4 lens are: f2.0, SS 1/320 , ISO200 (using natural light)
