This evening I was surfing the web and found a great resource for photographing your crafts for online sale. Who better to give advice on this topic than the folks over at The Storque: Etsy’s Handmade Blog? Want ideas on creative backgrounds and mood setting? Struggling to figure out how to use the white balance with the right lighting to get a decent exposure from your point-and-shoot digital camera? The excellent photo tips in this Etsy video will answer plenty of typical questions and help you make your shop into an Etsy superstar.
For more technical info and some useful advice/links on using post-production software to optimize images for Etsy, check out the entry on photographing items over at the Etsy Wiki. I can’t think of a single piece of information one could dream of knowing about Etsy that you can’t find in this seemingly exhaustive collaborative resource. Comment and let me know if you find anything missing. Better yet, add the missing info yourself! Spread the knowledge-sharing love.
