If you sell anything on-line--either your art or handmade items, vintage or collectible items or just stuff you don’t want anymore on eBay—you have to take photographs of your items. Good photos sell your item. Sometimes the photographs turn out beautifully with little effort on your part. Other times, not so much. If you’re like me, I’ve found that some things just don’t photograph that well. I’m always looking for tips on good photography and several blogs and on-line forums have great discussions on taking good photos. Here’s one that I thought was helpful. It also has links to instructions on how to make your own light box. One of these days I’ll get around to trying to build my own.
