I'm finally going to start listing a few things on Etsy again but the problem I'm having is taking decent photos. I listed two baby blankets yesterday and have more to list, but I'm not happy with the photos at all.
My camera is decent, but it's difficult to snap a photo that shows the full beauty of a large crocheted piece without it being distorted at one end. Folding or otherwise arranging it into a smaller piece helps, but you still have to worry about lighting, the right angle, background, etc. In my case, I also have pet hair to deal with.
I always wash my finished items, but just about anywhere I might put it to take the photo is going to have dog and/or cat hair, no matter how often I vacuum or brush. I've decided I need some props to properly display my craft and attempt to get good pics.
I've come up with a few ideas of my own and friends on Facebook brainstormed with me too, so I think I'm on the right track for things to look for. What do you use to take photos of your work? Any tips to share?
