My best props for photo shoots have been, weighttraining weights & a bottle of Jack Daniels.

What props have you used alongside your model in order to help create a stunning image?

And I do mean physical props, but you can include smoke and gels. frown
I’m sorry about the white jacket with ties at the back. My doctor says I’ve made excellent progress and I will be released from Broadmoor on Tuesday; fancy a shoot on Wednesday!?

You can do a lot with chairs if you have the right type: contemporary or old-fashioned style. frown

A bottle of Johnsons Baby Oil.
A little help is worth a lot of sympathy.

I often buy materials and throws from fabric shops, eg the leopard-print throw used here...






Sunglasses and sunbed...





Best regards

Better for models and their skin if you use something like Almond oil or even vegetable oil, (yes the stuff you cook with) Baby oil is mineral based, Basically derived from the stuff you put in a car/lorry/bike engine, Not really best for health. Plus the fact almond oils soak into skin more easily unlike "baby" oils that tend to just sit there.

I don't think you can limit yourself to a few props. I literally use hundreds and I use a lot of things once. They are acquired for a single shoot and then discarded.

Or of course the stylist brings them along.
