Tips to Look @ Before Saying “Say Cheese!”

Wanting to capture the little masterpieces I’ve created this week before they sell at the craft bazaar, I did some research on taking photos of items as well as how to take photos just for Etsy.

One article I read discussed what types of cameras work best for these special photos. Jen Kiaba {check out: http://www.etsy.com/shop/Jenkiabaphotography} wrote this article: http://www.etsy.com/storque/how-to/etsy-success-the-right-camera-7355/. A point in her article discusses the quality of pictures between an $800 camera, $250 camera and $15 camera. Take a look at the article and each camera’s photo of the same necklace. Jen’s conclusion: “Check out the image comparison and see for yourself. Which camera would you choose? The Fujifilm FinePix F30 is still my favorite, but I was pretty blown away by the Nikon CoolPix L4 as well. And for $15, you really can’t go wrong!”

I found her article and other articles from Etsy very informative. Many of the points they discuss I’ve been already implementing thanks to a digital photography class in college and looking at my sister’s fantabulous photographs.

If you are striving to take better pictures of your craft pieces {or anything, really} like myself, take a look at these spiffy articles! I’m sure you’ll glean some informative suggestions:
