I got a new camera a few weeks ago and have been playing with it all the time. I just love it! I was supposed to take a class last week but due to the lovely Flu bug that didn't happen. Taking photos for my Etsy shop really is the bane of my existence because I never feel pleased with the end product . I used to have to take all my photos outside because my previous camera just didn't do a great job in the house. Now I am able to do indoor pictures, so that is a big help--no more chasing cards all over my yard when the wind blows. Of course my neighbors won't have any entertainment now...oh well. I know many of you have Etsy shops and have to do photos so I thought I'd share my little "Photo Setup" that is working out really well.
Here is the new card design I photographed using this technique:
The color inspiration for this card came from the new Vera Bradley
print-Boysenberry, as shown below.
It is still important to get the right lighting--late afternoon is best in this spot of my house.
My friend Jennifer at Delightfully Noted has a great idea to use a white box to photograph your items in. Love that idea too!
Good luck with your pictures!
