Thanks, I really appreciate it! So I have this small magnetic chess set, and the pieces stick to each other. I lined them across from each other separated by a paper strip, and they stuck together through it. You can see the thin paper line in between the white and black pieces. I then rested the chain of chess pieces on the floor and put solid black and solid white paper behind them to create the background. Then I took the picture. I did a slight bit of editing to the background to make it more even/consistent. That's about it. I don't know if that made any sense :D
