Gathering props around your home should be an easy task when you get started styling your own photos. Often enough, objects we use the most daily can become parts of stories we share in photography.
I live in a small London apartment and when I started making my own photos, I was only playing around to learn how to use my camera, so I was trying to get the most out of what I had instead of buying props, and believe me, it works really well. Here is what I learnt along the way:
- Having fewer props avoids confusion: A smaller selection of props makes it easy for you to remember them and to get organised.
- You can challenge yourself and get creative by reusing the same props for different purposes (for example use a tin as a flower vase, then reuse the same tin as a pencil pot). Since you come across the same props more often, you can be more creative!
- It keeps your home uncluttered. And that feels great.
- You can look at other utensils in a more creative way too! It helps building...
