Product picture taking tips

Basic Picture Taking

1. Use natural lighting- Do not take your pictures directly in the sunlight either. Morning or a cloudy day is perfect for taking pictures. Also cloudy days will make your colours POP!

2.Use your camera's MACRO setting which enables you to take very close up pictures and get all of the fine little details. I also like to use the aperture setting for close ups but it is a little more detailed and not all cameras have it. (ask me about aperture if you are curious)

3.make sure your background isn't to busy. Use something that will make your item stand out and not blend in to the scenery.

4. Try to have fun wile you are taking picture... try new angles and don't take pictures from above. Try to make your pictures like someone is viewing them in real life. Think of all the ways you would look at the item if you were holding it in person.

5. Brightening photos in Photo Shop... after opening your photo in PS click IMAGE and scroll down to auto colour. This will correct the colours in your picture. It works best if you have a large white area because it turns the whites white and not gray. yay Then click image again and go to the adjustments category and click brightness. You can then adjust the brightness of the picture. There are many other ways to do this but we will just start out with one for now.

It's a beautiful day!

It's a beautiful Vancouver. So here are some items from designsbyamber, an etsy seller that has some really nice summer clothes...
I think its time to put away the winter wardrobes and pull out the summer ones. I know I did. A great way to get new and fun clothes with out braking the budget is to organize or go to a clothing swap. You can get some really great out fits this way and you can also clean out your closet and get rid of those items that haven't been touched in years.

Really Cool B&W

These are really cute! By: lacravatteduchien
She actually found the stones on the beach! So they must be very unique, one of a kind earrings.

Custom Portrait

This is a sample of a custom portrait that you can get done by Krystyna81. I think this one is absolutely beautiful!
Custom Portrait from a photograph. Multi-media portrait in gesso, acrylic paint and charcoal. Multiple layers of drawing and painting create a true likeness with a more modern twist. A truly unique approach to portraiture.

I am really proud of this ring! I love the chunkiness, I love the red and the boldness. I also like it's imperfections... the random uneven bits of wire. It makes me think of those little cherry's I forget the name of. (of course)
