Painting Backdrops DIY



I was so happy with the new fancy hand-painted backdrop I bought recently, that I was inspired to give it a try for myself. See if I could make myself some more unique backgrounds for my photo shoots. I picked up some painters’ drop canvases to paint on, and kept my eye on the mistint section in the paint stores nearby. I was surprised by some of the wonderful colour combos I found with only a few visits to the paint stores. I hauled all of this (5 gallons of paint and three canvases) onto the ferry and over to the Sunshine Coast so I could enlist the help of my artist Dad. Luckily we had a nice day so we set up on the deck and had some painting fun outside. I’ll be interested to see how they photograph. Below is a little video of us making these backdroppies.

Meg Title

I’ve been lucky enough to know the very lovely, Megan Bourne, for many many years now. She is a rad photographer in her own right, but I stole her for a few hours in front of the camera. We had such a fun time and I had the opportunity to play around with some ideas I’d been dreaming up for some time, while testing out a new backdrop. I also took a little footage and put together a teaser video you can watch below. There were so many gorgeous shots, it was hard to choose a few to share. Enjoy!
