If you’re a vlogger or an artist and you need to do photo shoots of your work, this is a good DIY project for you. Oliver made a distressed photography surface in this video to have an interesting backdrop for his craft projects.

If your project needs another kind of surface for your product photos, there are other ways to make a different background. Here is a collage full of inspiration.

Oliver used distressed wooden planks as a photography surface. This kind of background is a good one for rustic or handmade products. Depending on your product, the (brand) color scheme, and the context of your story, the kind of background you use is as important as your props. So choose well.
