Cool and Affordable Backdrop Ideas for Taking Killer Blog Photos

Creating the cool backgrops for blog photos don’t always have to be expensive. Sometimes it is all about maximizing what is already available for your use. Some bloggers spend big money to create cool looking backdrops that they will only use once. Not only is it financially wasteful, it is also a waste of time and effort. Why not create something that is slightly permanent and could be used multiple times?

Here are some creative, cool, and affordable backdrop ideas for taking killer blog photos:


Always free and always available. If you live near a park, or you have a backyard of your own, it is easy to get creative with using grass as a backdrop. A field is also a creative idea, as it gives a more rustic and romantic appeal. What is great about using grass is that it is in the outdoors! There is no better lighting than natural lighting, especially during magic hours.
