A non-patterned bedsheet can be an easy backdrop to rig up if it has no major creases. Preferably it should be a color that contrasts with your MOC; a neutral color if possible.

Usually I just improvise a backdrop from my surroundings (not very professional, I know) but this solution has served me well when writing reviews and photographing MOCs.

I'm sure some more proficient MOCists can offer you better advice, but I figured I'd give my two cents in case you wanted a "cheap & easy" solution.

Haha, ditto! I usually use the white lid of my LEGO totes for my photos, or a black suitcase for brighter colored ones. :laugh:

I made a small lightbox a while back.

It's definitely the best Lego photography environment I've had, though it's not perfect. Because of it's open top, I have to shine the florescent lamp directly at the subject, which is not ideal lighting, even though it still helps visibility a lot. I think I need a way to reflect the light instead. Any ideas on how to go about that?
