We received some Ella Bella Backdrops in exchange for this post.
It’s statistically proven that people click more on post with beautiful photos. Um, you can have all the phenomenal content you want, but if your photos don’t pop, no one will click through to find out what you have to say. Kinda sad, right? However, people are BUSY and you have to GRAB them with a good visual.
Backdrops are not only a wondrous blog tool — they are also helpful to people who sell things online, like Ebay. An online seller who photographs items on the floor for lack of space would benefit by using a backdrop to highlight their items instead of showing the carpet or linoleum. Um, neither are attractive, right? A good backdrop also makes your home look very clean, and people buying items online want them to come from a clean home.
Everyone should use them, but not everyone does. Usually the reason is that they’re very hard to find at a reasonable price. I found some online that I wanted to share with you. They’re pretty inexpensive and I absolutely LOVE them! You’ve probably already seen them in several of our blog post already, right?
They’re made by Ella Bella and they come in 4’ x 12’ size, so they’re BIG enough that you can use them for just about anything you’d showcase on your blog, but they’re also SMALL enough that they wouldn’t be falling out of the closet every time you opened the door. Awesome, right?
Backdrops Used: Ella Bella’s Dots-Soft Pink & Vintage Wood
The whitewashed wood backdrop is a common favorite amongst FOOD bloggers. The plate looks like it’s on a clean farmhouse table, and the light background compliments all sort of colors. The look is also good for taking photos of flower arrangements or any subject you want to have a country feel to it.
Backdrops Used: Ella Bella’s Dots-Baby Blue & White Washed Wood
The classic damask backdrop (our personal favorite) is a wondrous choice for nice craft photos.The light color of the background won’t overpower anything you’re showcasing. Imagine using this one for wreaths and banners. They’d look like they were hanging on a Victorian era wall. Sounds cute, eh?

I also really love the the multi-colored dots. You’ve probably seen me use this one a lot, right? This one is perfect for anything child-related. Um, the sketched polka dots are too cute! Reviews of baby items or kids toys would look fantastic with this backdrop. Also, if you’re an online seller of children’s items, this one would be great for you too.

Backdrops are important for professional looking photos, but don’t forget to use natural lighting whenever possible and get to know your camera’s basic settings. If you haven’t taken the time to read the book that came with your camera, you should. The more you know about your camera, the better your photos will turn out. And, a great backdrop will enhance them even further. So, what are y’all waiting on? Go snag yourself some Ella Bella backdrops today!
