Getting Good Product Shots

For the last few months I have been endlessly trying to get some good product shots of these bags and cushions. I’ve bought white paper,┬ámoved furniture about and have generally been making a mess with absolute zero success. I started thinking about finding a good outside location to take these shots. I then remembered that the front door to our flat his a lovely shiny black colour so I thought it give it a wipe down and test it out. I’m pretty pleased with the results, it’s a very handy and cheap alternative to hiring a studio. These tote bags are all hand screenprinted onto thick cotton and are available from my etsy shop at a bargain price!



Product Photography

I’m starting to build up a little collection of handmade bags and purses now and have been playing around with the dreaded task of photographing my products for ETSY. It’s so ridiculously important to have great product shots and i’m finding it difficult to get that perfect image. However, I won’t be beaten! I made a few test shots on a white chair directly in the sunlight. The white balance is completely wrong and I blame that on the lack of studio lights and sunshine. It’s very tempting to hire a professional company to do this sort of thing but i’m determined to do this on a budget, and besides, it’s quite fun learning these things yourself.
