Online course: DIY Backdrops

Learn the exact steps on how to create your own unique photography backgrounds

I have something special for you!

As a (food) photographer, backdrops are one of the most important things which will help you to create your own unique style.

By creating my own backdrops, I was able to respond directly to my client’s needs.
In a short time, for a special photography or styling assignment, I was able to paint the backdrop to match the style.

This is exactly what you’ll learn in my online course DIY backdrops.

You will get FREE access to this online course and ALL my other courses in Mylucie Membership.

Do you recognize this?

Are you a food or product photographer? Would you like to learn how to make your own unique backdrops just like I do, but you don’t have a clue where to start?

Do you…

always see those great photography backgrounds that you would like to use too?

already make your own backdrops, but you still use the same techniques?

have issues with backgrounds that do not work for your photo vision leading to time loss and frustrations?

want your unique backgrounds that no one else has so you can be distinctive?

want to be able to use good backdrops when offering photography assignments?

In this online course, you will learn to apply the techniques to create unique photography backgrounds yourself.

It frustrates you that you see cool backdrops for product photography at others. You also want a large canvas backdrop to hang in your living room so that you immediately have a totally different backdrop for your portrait photography or still life of flowers.
But where do you start? You’re wondering exactly what materials you should purchase.

You are also a bit unsure because painting is not your strong suit. You wonder if you can make it happen.

One thing is certain; you now want to learn to make your own backrops so you can distinguish yourself from others.

I just finished DIY canvas backdrops! It's a great course for any unexperienced person who loves painting. I am a professional food photographer and I like to make my props all by myself. I have already made several wooden backgrounds and I have been very satisfied with the process and the results. I don't think painting a canvas backdrop would be as much easy and interesting. In this course, Lucie shares her great experience of painting canvas backdrops and napkins. I love her tips and tricks and the way she uses the available tools for the best results.  I do recommend this course very much. In the end, you will learn how to make gorgeous backdrops and lovely napkins with low budgets all by yourself. Thank you so much!

About me

Since the beginning of my career as a food photographer and food stylist, I make my own backdrops. I have been painting for a long time.

My first business was making paintings for the children’s room. I worked in set design, where I learned several techniques.

I studied Creative Therapy Visual, where I also learned a lot about the materials you can work with. And painting and new techniques are still a favorite pastime of mine.
Just like photography and styling, I can also get into a “flow” here.

And also here it is accessible; it is mainly doing it, and you can hardly make any mistakes. You just do not want it to be perfect because you want a “lived” backdrop.
