How to make a simple dark wood photography backdrop – newborn baby sitter photoshoot – at

In this video I’ll show you how I made my very simple and easy DIY Dark Wood Photography backdrop. I’m planning on using this background during Newborn Photoshoots and Baby/toddler Photoshoots. It’s made from laminate floor boards.

I’m a full-time photographer in the Netherlands and I’m planning on showing you a but more of my life as a photographer. Are you interested in photography? Are you looking for a free-online Photography course? Do you want to see the inside of a Photo Studio? Then please, watch my videos and subscribe to my channel!

I’m planning on sharing videos in which I show you my typical work-week as a photographer. I will give you tips & tricks concerning photography, photo shoots, backdrops, studio props, camera settings (iso, aperture, shutter speed, white balance), photoshoot outfits, photoshoot make-up etc.

Bedankt voor het kijken! Ik ben een full-time fotograaf in Nederland en ik wil je graag iets meer laten zien over mijn werk als fotograaf. Wil je meer weten over (digitale) fotografie? Wil je weten hoe een fotostudio er van binnen uitziet? Ben je op zoek naar een gratis online cursus fotografie? Kijk dan mijn videos en abonneer je op mijn kanaal. Ik zal videos maken over camera instellingen (iso, sluitertijd, diafragma, wit-balans), studio achtergronden, fotoshoot outfits, fotoshoot make-up enz.

If you are interested in photographing newborn babies yourself I would highly recommend you to first learn about photography in general. Master you camera, photograph in the Manual mode, learn about aperture, iso, shutter speed, white balance, light and composition. Take photos of your friends (adults or very patient older kids) and make sure you don’t have to think about your camera anymore when photographing babies. Learn about editing as well. Please, don’t experiment photographing Newborn babies without training. Attend a workshop by an experienced and professional photographer with an expertise in Newborn Photography. Learn about the anatomy of babies and invest in good quality cameras, lenses and props. Babies are extremely vulnerable and small and their safety and comfort should be your highest priority. Start with simple poses and make sure you know and understand that many ‘pinterest poses’ are composites. Please, don’t try this at home. If you want beautiful photos of your own Newborn Baby, I highly recommend you to hire a professional and experienced photographer who is trained and specialised in Newborn Photography.

    💕Thank you for that ♥️ you are amazing

  7. Thankyouvery much! grettings from Chile!!

    There is nothing simple about this!

    Simple would be a roll of vinyl flooring that looks like wood. Cheap, pre-made, easy to unroll, and the exact same look.

  9. Hi fenna I made this background and it turned out amazing! thank you! I am now making an off white distressed background with the brown stain below showing through. Thanks for all of the great tutorials I am a big fan and watch your videos almost daily!

  10. Jessica Hall says:

    Hi Fenna. Thank you for this video. I really have learned a lot from you. Can you please provide link to the certain rod you used to secure the backdrop (double curtain rod). Thank you.

  11. Just subscribed to your channel I have tried to watch other channels and I must say I’m beyond excited I came across yours. I love that you share in detail your camera settings and also props and ideas. I just started dabbing into photography and your channels have inspired me and taught me so much! Thank you!! Please keep videoing🤗

  12. Hi Fenna, I really like the crib you have and I would like to achieve the same. Would it be possible for you to give me the size of the bed and the thickness of wood used stp?

  13. Savannahali says:

    Hi Fenna, would you mind sharing the name of the brand of laminate you used and the color? Could you also share where you go the wooden basin from?

  14. middigirl says:

    Hi Fenna. I am really glad I stubbled on your videos. I am in the processes of making a wooden backdrop like yours. Gluing the two end pieces to the back is a good idea!  I also loved the wooden prop your boy was sitting in. Could you do a video on where you got some of your wooden bowls and baskets??

  15. What brand and model is the softbox in this video?

  16. So happy to have found this channel. I am a photographer myself and starting business very soon. I wanted to do something like what you did in this video but had no idea how to do. Thanks a lot for sharing this. It's so helpful and I am definitely gonna steal some ideas from you. 💖
