Okay, easy as pie, snap a few shots of your new product line and upload them to Etsy, right? Wrong. First you need a backdrop which is, of course wrinkled. Then you discover your steam iron has been invaded by.....ants. It took about an hour to flush them out of the water resevoir. Word to the wise, if you have a door you can close on your iron's water tank...CLOSE IT. Next, read the fine tutorial your friend Paula Wessels of Big Picture Scrapbooking sent you on how to get your photo in perfect focus. Get out the camera equipment and sit down to read the manual. Read, process, practice. More lights, another lens, light tent, tripod, and lots of PATIENCE later.... we have photos.
Look at the gorgeous detail in this shot, the fine tuned focus on the fiber and weave, the little sparkle and gleam on the tiny seed beads. Yum. So many colors, so many moods to choose from.
You know you want one!!!
Visit my Etsy shop by clicking the thumbnails on the left or following this link. Browse around until you find your personal favorite, then come back here and comment on it in glowing terms... the sappier the better. Something like, "neat, mouthwateringly sweet, eyeball treat". Don't keep the chance all to yourself either, pass it around. After all, These are hard times. I need the encouragement. At the end of this week, on Sunday, February 8th, 2009... I'll pick the warmest and fuzziest comment of them all and send my new best friend the bracelet of her choice. No Charge.
