Recently I photographed several new egg designs. Over the past weekend I had two craft shows. One in Maryland and the other in the Pittsburgh area. While at each show I made several new designs. Each one I wanted to photograph and sell on my Etsy shop.
After completing each egg I attempted to photograph inside with a flash. Each photograph produced a glare that made viewing the egg impossible and unappealing. Without the flash, the egg color was dark and muddy. I normally take photos of my eggs outside in natural bright sunlight. I thought after moving into my house, I would have the ability to photograph wonderful pictures. Most of the photos you see on my etsy shop occurred on a small porch attached to my apartment in Pittsburgh. The opposite it true. With my full time job and busy weekends, I never have time to photograph during the bright light of day outside.
How do I fix this issue and produce more photos like this?
I will try to use my own lights before investing in light fixtures to use with these items.
I started wondering if the majority of sellers use items like these to create better photos. If fellows sellers do something different, what others tips and techniques work best to improve photographs? How does one make their items pop in a way that they are prime picks for treasuries and the front page?
