Thank you for the info!! I am struggling right now on how to take good photo's (can we say, over 250 taken and only 10 were decent, not good...decent?). I will give these tips a try!


Wendi, I hope the tips do help. Although I must say 250 to 10 is not a bad ratio. I shot over 700 photos at a Marathon this fall and ended up deleting all but 20. You have to take a lot of photos. Good luck to.


Great tips! Thank you.

thank you for the info. I'm taking a lot of pictures myself too for the products.


Good ideas - have to try a few of these for my next photoshoot for the etsy products (especially the background idea - always struggling to communicate the actual size of my jewelry to the customers anyway). Thanks a lot for sharing!


Excellent tips! I will quote you in the future. I'm following you, too, as you have lots to offer.


Linda - I hope my tips help, jewelry is tough to photograph.


Thanks Nancy! And welcome!

Education is a progressive discovery of our own ignorance.


Great advise. I had already figured I had to stop taking pictures of my crafts in my bedroom/loft with no windows. I love taking pictures, but they have been coming out so bad since the lighting is bad. Thanks for the confirmation and the tips!

Thank you Cassandra! Natural light really does make all the difference. Good luck with the photos.
