I’ve got a bit of an issue with measuring cups. I don’t have display cases full of them or anything, but I have more than I need. They’re just so….pretty. And useful. And I feel good about myself when I buy a new set. I need therapy, I know.
So this is a sampling of the measuring cups. I know, right? So cute! The point is the nice crisp background. Wanna see how I did it?
I put a little side table in front of a door, unrolled some wrapping paper, and taped it to the door. Rocket science, people. WAY over your heads.
I played around with it and put it in a couple of different spots in the house. It gives a slightly different look, and you’ll see the shading varies. The point is to use as much natural light as you can find. Because the paper is curved, you don’t see any seems in the background.
When you take the picture, it’ll still be a little flat, so I use Picmonkey (free program online) to edit it a bit. I up the brightness in exposure a little (or a lot if needed!), and I sharpen it.
If the color gets a little flat from brightening it, I use “boost” to bring some of the colors out–especially in something like this one.
And this is the final product! I’m pretty thrilled with it ’cause it really shows off some details, and it highlights different points. That’s especially good with tutorials and final product shots. Own an Etsy shop? This is right up your alley. I think.
I’m certainly no professional photographer, so I was glad I could find an easy and free way to bring a little oomph to my pictures. Right now you’re thinking, “Why measuring cups?” aren’t you?
