This shouldn’t even be a tutorial, because it is SO easy. However, any time I share an Instagram photo… I get asked about my background. Is it my kitchen counter? Do I have beautiful marble floors? Or, perhaps, is it vinyl? No, no, and no. It’s created with two items and cleverly cropped in editing.

A subtle backdrop looks stunning on Instagram and Pinterest, and I try to make sure none of my backgrounds are distracting. I always “tidy” up my photography area so that there is no clutter or anything that shouldn’t be there before I shoot. And, I always have my foam board! Whether I use this marble piece or a blank white foam board, I typically stock up on these monthly at the local dollar store. It’s my go to photography prop, and I don’t even use my vinyl backgrounds anymore.

To get started, look for marble contact paper on Amazon. Here is the marble paper that I used. For under $10, you can re-create this! Just grab a white foam board, scissors, and a roll of this marble contact paper. It covers the foam board with about an inch on the top and bottom.
