REASONS TO PAINT BACKDROPS & FLAT LAYS
Last year, I had the honor and privilege to watch Elizabeth Messina photograph a model at Hybrid Co. During the session, the model was laying on top of a hand painted backdrop. This took me by total surprise. I never knew you could paint backdrops and flat lays. So of course after I left, I went home and I began to look around on Pinterest.
I then realized that there were a ton of people like me who were curious and didn’t know how to paint their own. After a lot of trial and error, along with taking an online painting course to help me understand techniques and supplies – I finally felt as if I had a pretty awesome product in front of me. Now I am on a mission to teach other like minded business owners how they too can paint beautiful backdrops. But before we go any further, I wan’t to make this statement:
THIS IS NOT JUST MEANT FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS!
If you are a baker, florist, planner, hair/makeup artist, small business owner or blogger, chances are you have a product or service that can be paired with backdrops or flat lays. Imagine how clean and refined your products/services would look in front of a beautiful hand painted surface.
Also, these pieces of art give a luxurious and fine art aesthetic that can help elevate your brand and bring in clients/customers who value your work. Adding these backdrops to my full day elopement packages helped bring attention to those collections and made them stand out more. It also shows my clients that I am doing everything to give them an ultimate experience with me.
STOP SHOWCASING YOUR PRODUCTS/SERVICES IN A MANNER THAT DOESN’T UPLIFT YOUR BRAND!
If you are a business owner looking into learning more about how to hand-paint your own backdrops, I have an entire online course that shares all of my secrets HERE. Curious as to what my flat lays look like? Check out my latest blogs for some examples!
