I recently did a photo shoot using only a cheap kiddie pool, black backdrop and fake flowers. All and all this shoot cost me under $30 and provided a unique addition to my portfolio. Included are also some behind the scenes photos taken from an iphone to give extra insight.
Shot on a Nikon D750 w/ 50mm 1.4g lens (also used a cheap $7 prism from ebay to manipulate some photos.
