{natural backdrops}

Whilst trying to add a few items to my Etsy Shop left over from last month's handmade shows... I had no idea how to photograph some 9ft banners in a creative way- until I looked out the back window.

There - freshly chopped down and stacked along the property line - was a huge pile of firewood!  The neighbor who cut down this tree must be OCD like me since every piece was almost exactly the same length, thus lending this lovely wood pile wall for my shop photos!  

I'd say it does the trick! So before you drive all around town trying to find the perfect spot for a photo shoot for that newly finished quilt, or what-have-you... first glance out your window! You may be surprised at the beauty just waiting to be discovered.  Yes, even in the backyard.

When we move into our new home in less than 2 weeks I may still have to take my photos over here - on the neighbors woodpile.  Good thing its a NEW pile of wood - and won't be thrown into a fireplace for a year.  My fingers are crossed at least!
