The first of the 5 ways to use props in your photos is to bring in your brand colors. Cushions or pillows on a couch or different color files, notebooks or pens are just some examples of how you can incorporate pops of color. If you’re incorporating any electronics such as your phone or laptop, you could get a cover that matches your brand as a way to feature your brand colors.
Props can be used to help personalize your photos. Incorporate items that help
showcase what you do during the day. A funky planning board is a good example.
Props can also be used to create a connection with a potential client. For example, showcasing books on your desk or coffee table that resonate with your audience is one such prop idea.
Add a few personal touches to your workspace to give clients an idea of what you’re all about. Flowers, a camera, or a passport (if you love to travel) could work really well for this.
Detail shots such as a close up of your coffee mug next to your laptop are also some popular prop ideas.
