Really amazing. Did you have some sites that we can use to buy this tiles? I'm a food blogger and I'm always in looking for the perfect backgrounds...

using tiles for background is actually really smart and a lot cheaper option! thank you so much! in terms of flatlays, would the tiles reflect the lighting of shadows?

Very cool video. Thanks for sharing. what size are the tiles? 2' x 2'?
That Sounds Fun (1 year ago)
The thin planks are about 7" in width, and the larger squares are a bit bigger at around 18-20" width.

Great tips! I look forward to finding some really cool tiles for shooting my sweets. Love the black shiny tile.

I'm a big fan of driftwood, looks fantastic in food compilations as well as leaning/hanging products on. Seeing as you live near the sea perhaps you can go collect some treasures from the beach. Pretty stones, shells, maybe even seaweed if it dries nicely. Wallpaper comes in fake brick wall, if you're going for a southern pub style/new york chique. You could pin it onto cardboard as a background. Second hand stores are great for old books, and random pairs of cutlery (ornate antique or 70s) and retro kitchen tools. The tiles are very compact, that's nice :)

+TinksiehTink those are all some great ideas! Thank you!

Nice work Ash! I've never considered the flooring store for backgrounds. Very clever. Do you have plans to make money from photography in the future, or is it just a hobby?
That Sounds Fun (1 year ago)
Thanks! Maybe one day, I think I'd enjoy that for sure! Definitely not going to rule it out at least.

Hey, brilliant idea - photos look great! I want to photograph some products so I'll use this, thank you :-) Got any tips for shooting hair/portrait pictures?
That Sounds Fun (1 year ago)
Portraits is totally the weak part of my game! Hair is usually really difficult, but making sure it's lit properly from behind/above with a subtle hair light can give it that slight glow that will make it stand out.

I might use my granite chopping board next time I take some piccies of my homemade birthday cards. Good suggestions!!

Have you done a video on your food photography set up? Especially not to get the glare on the tiles.
That Sounds Fun (1 year ago)
I haven't! I don't think anyway... It's usually not a particularly fixed or interesting set up though! Large diffused softbox pointed at the food, then tweak the positioning until it looks okay! It's always a bit of trial and error for now.

Your photos always look so lovely!!

Thank you so much!!

When you did the glass skull what was the white background? Was this backlit? Really cool photograph. Great tips.
That Sounds Fun (1 year ago)
Yep! I had the skull on the tile on a table about a metre away from the wall, then had the flash on the floor under the table pointing at the wall. It bounces off the wall and gives a nice smooth gradient, while lighting the glass from behind. It's my go-to look for clear objects!!
