I've been trying to come up with my own unique backdrop that was more than changes in cloth etc. I've seen what various other shop owners do, but I had to find my own unique quirky thing to do. Copying others is not exactly what I had in mind, so when I came up with using the driftwood I had brought home from the coast, then I knew I had found something I could claim as my own. Even though I already like using my seashell collection from time to time as a prop too.
I think it really adds life through texture and contrast to the photography and we'll just have to see how this changes or improves my photo shoots.
