I have recently been testing out how to implement more stand-up product photography shots in the web site, but getting a white background can often be difficult. With any photography, it’s the light, light, and more light that makes the difference! But, even with low light, you can get some great photo shots of your blogging items.

Then, you just take a largish piece of white paper and drape it over the poster board, using scotch tape to attach it to the window. (Sorry, I was at a different store this week, and could only get paper with a handle cut out.)
