Hi - after all the tips and hints given over the past few months, I’ve finally got around to photographing my latest designs and have now listed them (thanks @folksycontent1!) . Things I changed from my previous pictures include:
- a more contrasting (but still neutral) frame to avoid the picture frame being too washed out with the pale background and accessories
- played around with the settings on my camera again and brightened the pictures after taking them with my ‘in-house’ PC software (so not having to buy anything new)
- consistent use of accessories to tie in with the existing photos.
- added in some close ups for detail.
I also recently reshot some of my cards designs, and made some accessories to go with them (empty boxes covered in wrapping paper) - really pleased with those. Just goes to show the more you experiment with / try out different ideas, the more confident you gain!!
I listed about six new designs today but here’s a couple (any thoughts/ other tips on the photography greatly welcomed/ appreciated):
