Getting The Craft To Say Cheese!

More and more artists and crafters are using the web to sell their items. There are online auction sites, online craft fairs, and opportunities to create online shops. A key element of selling on such sites is to have crisp, clean photographs of your work.  You can find a list of photography tips here on ThinkCrafts.com.

Most online artists and crafters offer these tips to get the perfect shots:

  • Take your photos outside to get the best light on your items.  Cloudy days are best as the filtered light helps bring pop to the photo.
  • Display your item in an interesting way, but don’t let the background or display become too busy. You want your item to be the main attraction.
  • Contrast your background and item. Light items on dark backgrounds and dark items on light backgrounds.
  • Take photos from many different angles and select the one that gives the best view of your item.
  • Use a tripod. Shaky hands led to unfocused images. Practice and get comfortable with your camera.
