I was taking photos of some of the garments I had made up yesterday, and of course I chose the wet, rainy, cold, dark day to take photos which meant they didn’t turn out as clearly and as true to their colours as they should be. One of the big things that has stuck with me while reading the Etsy forums and how to guides, is that taking well lit, clear photos is the key to making your product stand out.
I can’t take photos again until the weekend, because when I leave in the morning for work it’s dark and when I get home from work it’s dark (which is fine for taking outfit photos which don’t need to be too clear/true to colour/can be touched up easily without too much worry because I’m not selling you my outfits).
But this little set back means that I get to make more things! I’m currently working on the sweetest lemon yellow, full skirted 50’s inspired dress and a similar full skirted dress made out of a beautiful floral cotton vintage fabric.
I am going to share some of the poorly lit photos with you all though so that you can at least get some indication of what I’m making/can make if you were wanting something custom made which is relatively easy with Madeline. There are many more garments (and even more ideas), but here are just a sprinkling –
This dress isn't quite finished yet, but it looks amazing on (I almost don't want to sell it!). A while ago I came across a treasure trove of beautiful vintage collars, this is one of them -
PS) I've finally gone pro - flickr pro that is.
