Because I can, so I do. Wouldn't You?
One of the easiest way to spruce up pics, and relatively cheap, is to get one sheets each of black, gray and white drawing paper, preferably A1 size. Have the sun in our back, put the stuff on one of the sheets, and voila, the pics are quite a bit better automagically. Of course the sheets of paper are reusable. Next step I personally want to try out is matt vs shiny sheets.
I have found about the worst background is shiny cardboard, and high contrast between the subject and background also causes problems. A plain cloth is useful, or some plain natural background like wood, stone, even concrete. Best light I have found is daylight, either from a north window or outside - and best weather for outside is a bright overcast day. Have the things you need to photograph ready and waiting for when the weather & light is good.
I don't know why this is happening today - Google isn't signing me in so my comment is anonymous - but I am Dot, and I just typed the above.
Having trouble leaving comments now, first one came up anonymous, then the second overwrit the first...I suggested plain natural backgrounds - wood, concrete, stone, and low contrast between foreground and background, and north light indoors or overcast but bright day outside.Dot (fibre2fabric & YarnMaker)
