Where to Start
The set only has to look good from the angle of the camera, meaning you really don’t have to build it all the way out. Once you come up with an idea try finding some cheap lumber and other materials that you think will give the effect you’re going for. Investing a couple hours into this will make your images more unique and allow you to get the exact shot you want.
