Step Up Your Staging

I love making handmade soap and the SHOTBOX makes it easy to show it off. The soap looks just fine on a plain white background but it almost looks like it is floating. So I stepped up my staging by adding a wood plank base (leftover hardwood flooring pieces) and a ceramic tile background. That looks nice and gives the photo a homier feel but it still was lacking a little something. So I sprinkled a few dried Calendula flowers and petals around the base of the soap and that gave my picture just the look I was going for. When you take your pictures, start simple and step up your staging until you find the look that you want!

My name is Jodie and I am a wife and mother of four. I love to bake, craft, travel, exercise, hike and explore new things. I'm excited to use the SHOTBOX to highlight my creations and to show you how this simple tool can bring light and life to your passions too.

The SHOTBOX is a collapsible tabletop studio that uses high powered LEDs to create a perfectly lit “micro-studio” environment. They are now taking pre-orders to be delivered for Christmas.
