Amateur Photo Props

So, I’ve actually been keeping up with bookstagram this year…holy tamales! It has been partly due to focusing on a decent schedule and partly being excited for the overall image and details. I got it into my head earlier this year that I was going to use burned pages as props for my pictures…and I did it! Whoo whoo! I bought an old book that I had zero intention to read and I tore it apart and have been using it as a prop by burning pages and creating things.

**Please don’t get mad because I bought this book just for that reason, I was really baffled by my thought as well but also it was a book that I just wouldn’t want and it didn’t look like something most of us would care for these days, and to not get attached I didn’t even read the title. Mostly because I picked a different book and read the title and was like NOPE I NEED THIS IN MY LIFE.

So let’s get on with other props if you’re a total amateur as well:

  1. Books

2. Book Pages / Burn the book pages (SAFELY!!!) No seriously I did research before doing this and also I promise I am an adult. So yeah.

3. Paper flowers | This may need you to gather patience and also your craft skills, I may or may not have burned my finger a few times with hot glue.

4. Fake flowers

5. Real Flowers

6. Shoes

7. Artwork
