10 MORE Cheap or Free Props for Amazing Styled Photos
After all the wonderful feedback I received from the first series of TEN Dirt Cheap or FREE props for Styled Photos I decided to write a second series. So here’s Ten MORE prop ideas that you can utilize today to create amazing styled photos for your blog or business and a WHOLE LOT of gorgeous inspiration to sink your eyeballs into.
(I picked up this Rose Gold beautiful owl from a local handmade Soy candle maker and it smells like dreams!!! Oh gosh, I’m addicted to sniffing it when sitting in my studio working, hehe. It’s from the wonderful Queensland local DM Aromas)
4. Artworks/Handmade goods. We go to handmade markets on a regular basis. I am always picking up beautiful sketches, paintings or handmade decor for my home. These unique and often one of a kind (OOAK) items make great props for photos.
(Not at all locally made, this stunning keychain/bag charm is handmade in the UK with real leather and it’s an OWL!!!! So cute. From CocoBarClay London)
6. Keyrings or bag charms. Some of the cutest accessories in my photos are just Keyrings I picked up because I thought they were cute they can infuse colour and little pops of details/interest to an otherwise boring image. (see the above stunning yellow owl from Coco Barclay London)
9. Bits of nature. Shop your garden. Last weekend I spent the morning picking glossy green leaves from a tree in my garden and they photographed so beautifully. Think twigs, branches, leaves, petals, rocks or if you live by the sea there is sand, sea glass and shells! (just make sure you’re allowed to take them with you)
(I love the way these shells compliment the pearl on this gorgeous hand made necklace I photographed last week! Necklace by Mikah Handstamped Jewelry)
10. A styled breakfast tray (there are several in our home and we have so many timber serving boards which also work). Add flowers, a cuppa, a coffee maker and a croissant and it’s a show stopper!
So, after reading TWO posts (first one was here) with over TEN affordable prop ideas in each, surely you can think of at least ten things you have in your home right now that will make for amazing photos. Go forth and make pretty!!!!
