Props and backgrounds for blog/Instagram photos

Summer is great for blog photos! The sun is shining and it’s light for a really long time. I started taking pictures of the books I read from the start, always using different props. Preferably some, which have a connection to the books. In the beginning I didn’t care about the lighting, now I do, but I am definitely not a pro at it and in the end I just have to be happy with the actual picture. Now I also take lots of pictures for my blog posts and Instagram and always try to be creative. Props and different backgrounds really help to make photos unique.

Background ideas:

-       Blankets
