    Hi everyone. My name is Phil and I run a small furniture business as a side gig here in Southern California. I work out of a storage unit and end up taking a lot of photos of the furniture outside of the storage unit as it would be very inconvenient to move the furniture any where else for photos. I simply use my Iphone as a camera also for convenience as I can upload directly to various places online. I'm looking for ways to improve my photos. I'm specifically wondering if there is some kind of (hopefully fairly simple) set up that I could use to hide the fact them I'm shooting the photo in front of a storage door. Basically, something that would change the background. But I would also appreciate any other tips or critiques of my photos (which I'm attaching below) that might improve them. I'm not an experienced photographer but I'm all for ways to improve on what I'm doing. Thanks!

    It would help if you can isolate the subject/furniture more. Youve done a good job I think by filling the frame with them, but the backgrounds being distracting, takes away from the subject in the image. Pure white or black background drops would be very nice. Youve also shown depth of the furniture which is really good.
