Here are two that just sold from the new Winter Collection:
Staging photographs is fun and a bit vexing at times. Lately I've been running about the house (three level townhome) trying to find Xmas decorations. Not much luck in that department!
So, off to the Dollar Store and I got a few, need I say cheap, little things. Back to staging. I have a light box but that can be so tricky! I find the best shots are done during the day or late afternoon in natural lighting. The lightbox is good for showing textures - which I happen to have in many of my pieces. I love to put my pieces outside - great in the warm weather - well, it's warm. Last winter, I took some of my felted trees (yep, they'll be back) outside..that's called put in snow, take picture and RUN!
Here are some recent behind the scenes (ha ha) pictures:

|THE KITCHEN AND THE BLUE BAG I USED IN THE BACKGROUND FOR THE FIRST WINTER QUILTED SHOWN ABOVE - MY DAUGHTER PUT A PRESENT IN IT FOR MY BIRTHDAY LAST WEEK!|
It's fun photographing my felteds. Sometimes, I get a bit carried away and forget I'm not a photographer. Sometimes I see things in quirky ways - I think creative ways. They don't always make for selling my creations. But then there are always notecards which I did try last year.
HMMMMM, another idea.
I'm in several Treasuries on Etsy - and I am enjoying the interaction with other artists. I'm taking the time to actually look and comment on their work and promote them when I can on Twitter and my Facebook FanPage.
