This post shares a collection of missionary pamphlets my husband used when he served a two year mission in Vancouver, British Colombia.

To photograph these objects, they were too large to put in a light box so, I used the seamless backdrop setting. As you can see, the light is coming in from the left side. I was using natural light from my front living room window.

I could have kept the photography session in the portrait orientation because of the arrangement of items in a linear fashion. However, when I put the camera in the horizontal orientation, I loved the visual impact. Plus, with a little bit of wrinkles, the backdrop looks less like a 'studio set up' and more like perhaps the bed sheet potentially reminding me of the time my husband spent in prayer and study to be a great missionary.
Sometimes, photograph is less about the settings on your camera, and more about the arrangement of your objects. Have fun in the new year and capture the stuff of your family's lives. And, when you have time, let me know of the things you photographed.
