First product photo session

My purses
Not having the foggiest about such things, I've been reading The Crafters Guide to Taking Great Photos by Heidi Adnum. I've found it a brilliantly helpful book which in the first half gives clearly explained information about cameras, light, composition etc. The second half focuses on taking photos of specific craft products by topic such as bags, jewellery and fashion. Plus all the photos throughout are gorgeous and inspirational in themselves.

Ready to go out for the day
Yesterday I grabbed my camera and played around with my products, working their thang and styling them up, and trying to find the right mode and light. I need much more practise but came up with a few shots I like.

If I'm to open an online shop obviously the photos of the products I'm selling are one of the most important things to concentrate on.

Hubby told me I should take the photos with no labels on. Do you think he's right?

My favourite photo, what a cheeky face

I haven't got into my stride yet, or found the best light but I'm looking forward to much more practise as this was a lot of fun!


  1. I like the photos and the products! However, like your hubby said, maybe without the tags, you don't normally see photos on Etsy with tags on, but it's got to be your choice. Most of all have fun!

    1. You're right, you don't see tags on the photos on Etsy. Definitely something to think about. Thanks Magpie Mimi.
