Rectangular Wooden Plaque by ArtMinds
Introducing this wooden plaque into my staging kit was a game changer. It not only breaks up the monotony of all-black setups, but it also adds a great source of warm tones and gritty textures.
If you're the crafty type, you may want to fashion a wood plank of your own and enjoy staining it to your liking. For the rest of us, paying a bit to have a ready-to-use backdrop for photos makes a ton of sense. They come in many shapes, sizes, and colors, so choose one (or multiple!) that suits the vibe you're going for. Any local craft or home goods store should have these available.
