I, like many others, am not a photographer and really struggle taking photos. Trying to get decent shots on a white background is hard work. With a bit of editing and background removal I can just about achieve a photo like this (excuse poor scarf arrangement!) -
Trouble is I think it looks a bit stark and it takes several photos and lots of time editing to get it to that stage and I’m wondering if just taking a photo in the garden works just as well.
Does the background detract from the product or would this be acceptable. Would having the background make it less/more likely to be chosen for Folksy favourites or (not holding my breath) featured seller etc etc (@folksycontent - I guess thats one for you)
I know this is a topic that has been done to death and there is no single answer but if anyone would like to add their opinion/comments it would be appreciated - thanks in advance.
