One of my ultimate struggles in beauty blogging is finding the perfect background for my flat lays. I always have hell of a hard time choosing what color complements my subject or what fabric goes well with a particular product.
In the end, I always resort to the safest option: a plain white background. However, plain background can get a little boring sometimes. Plus, I find it difficult to maintain the pure white color of the cardboard which I use for my background. The one I am currently using these days is tainted a little bit, hence the background doesn’t register in the photos as beautifully and neatly as much as I wish to.
So to finally put a period to this recurrent dilemma, I decided to get myself these notoriously popular fabric for flay lays.
I present to you my first ever faux fur haha.
I initially picked white and old rose for my faux fur. However, the next day after I placed my order, the shop added light pink to their selection. I didn’t think twice and reached out to the seller pronto to ask if she can switch one of my faux fur to light pink. Thankfully, she consented.
What I really like about these faux fur is that they are very light and soft to the touch. However, they slightly shed which I believe is pretty normal for any faux fur. I try to handle them carefully as much as I can to prevent any further shedding.
I know I still need lots of practice for my product photography, but I am glad that I have one less problem now that I have a new flat lay background.
