  1. I find using a 50mm lens blurs the background which can ‘smooth out’ noisy images, but as a rule I tend to use the same table/wall to use, as it means any beauty product posts are consistent.

  2. I use plenty of random cheap stuff for photos. Big sheets of paper can give you a nice seamless background, rolled from a tabletop up onto a wall, and most art suppliers or stationers have lots of colours to choose from.

    My last purchase was a couple of metres of black velvet from the fabric stall in St. Nick’s Market — great for a solid black background.

    And bear in mind that while professional photographers’ finished shots might look pristine and beautiful, behind the scenes it’s all Blu-Tack, gaffer tape, aluminium foil and improvisation :) Don’t be scared to experiment!
