    Christmas Card Photo Ideas: choosing the right background

    Once you’ve decided upon your Christmas still life photography subject you can start building the scene.

    There are dedicated still-life photography tables available to create a clean background that you dress, but a plain wall or a length of fabric draped over a pile of books or taped to the wall will do.

    Alternatively, you could create a background from Christmas wrapping paper or a pile of Christmas presents – anything that’s appropriate to the subject.

    If you’re shooting something in situ don’t forget to have a good look around the background to check its clear.

    Any distracting items can either be moved or covered with a suitable cloth or you can recompose to avoid them. Don’t forget to check shiny objects like bauble for reflections of the TV etc.
