MAKING OF: DIY PHOTO BACKGROUND

I LAUNCHED MY ONLINE SHOP STILZITAT IN 2011. THERE IS NOT ENOUGH NATURAL LIGHT IN MY STUDIO, SO I WORKED WITH ARTIFICIAL LIGHTS FROM THE BEGINNING. TO GET A HOMOGENEOUS LOOK FOR MY ONLINE STORE, I STARTED PLACING MY PRODUCTS IN FRONT OF A BLACK BACKGROUND. MY KNOWLEDGE OF PHOTOGRAPHY WAS LIMITED & I JUST DIDN’T KNOW BETTER. NOW IT’S 2013 & I’VE LEARNED A LOT MORE ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY {ESPECIALLY ABOUT MANUAL WHITE BALANCE}. I DIDN’T CHANGE ANYTHING ABOUT THE DARK BACKGROUND UNTIL I READ THIS MAYA ANGELOU QUOTE: ‘WHEN YOU KNOW BETTER YOU DO BETTER’ SHE WAS RIGHT! – I THOUGHT! I ALWAYS WANTED TO HAVE A BRIGHT & CLEAR LOOK FOR MY STORE. SO IT TOOK ME ABOUT 3 TO 4 WEEKS TO CHANGE THE BLACK BACKGROUND INTO A WHITE ONE. BUT STILL, I WASN’T SATISFIED! WHITE PRODUCTS IN FRONT OF A WHITE BACKGROUND? REALLY? FAIL! SO I WENT ON EXPERIMENTING & HAVE FINALLY FOUND SOMETHING I LIKE A LOT: A BRIGHT, EXPRESSIVE WATERCOLOR LOOK FOR MY BACKGROUNDS! IT LOOKS ELEGANT & SOPHISTICATED, NOT TOO GIRLY & CORNY AT ALL! IT MAY LOOK LIKE IT IS WATERCOLOR, BUT I’VE CHEATED. I USED ACRYLICS WITH LOOOOTS OF WATER TO GET THIS EFFECT… SOOO, HOW DO YOU LIKE IT? THIS HERE SHOWS YOU HOW IT ALL WENT DOWN:
