Detail Shot Cheat Sheets, literally

I made it one of my goals of 2018 to take more detail shots. Typo Boutique was kind enough to send me a bunch of amazing (and great quality may I add) wedding invitations to practice on. After I received their package, I took a trip to Michael's and threw a bunch of little details to photograph in my cart. Michaels has great sales almost every day so I bought ribbon, plants, and paper. 

Large pieces of paper is a great cheat sheet to use when you don't have a nice white or pretty background to photograph on. A square sheet of paper for small details is great to travel with too!! I definitely recommend checking out your local craft store or to even check out Etsy!

Here's a few photos of my setup/behind the scenes:

Okay, I forgot to take behind the scene photos when I photographed the wedding invitations, but I did remember to take them when I took detail shots for Her Campus at VCU today! It was basically the exact same set up!

Here's the final product:

 I know you're seeing the same ring, but I only had my cute little pandora ring to practice on!
