Good Photography for Etsy #1

Good pictures sell your products on Etsy

It is so simple, really. Good photography is the most important thing for your e-shop, it is literally the only thing that can persuade your potential customer to buy.

Photographing for Etsy is something that many sellers struggles with. I myself still have A LOT to learn... but there are some tips I can share with you! I hope you will find it helpful :)

So, here are the main things that need to be taken under consideration:
 
PHOTOGRAPHING
  • staging (good presentation of the item, good background)
  • lighting (can be fixed in GIMP)
  • cropping

EDITING with GIMP or Photoshop
  • cropping
  • color balance and contrast
  • editing small imperfections of the background
There will be more blog posts to come in few next weeks so stay tuned!

You can check my ETSY shop to see the pictures, some better, some not so much ;) but I hope there is visible progress :D  Please feel free to share you knowledge in the comment section!
