Etsy’s Guide to Photography

Oct 21, 2010

by daniellexo

Etsy.com handmade and vintage goods

Beautiful, warm, crisp photos are key to selling your work on Etsy. Your photos need to convey not only the shape, size, color and texture of the work you are offering, but also the style and feeling behind your brand. There’s a lot to consider, and I always say product photography should be a continual process — no photo is ever perfect. I’ve put together a guide of the best articles on and off Etsy for you to study to help your product photography skills grow!

Give Props: How to Style Your Photos
Styling is a tool with unlimited possibilities. SusyJack helps you create beautiful, creative photos which not only showcase your unique items on Etsy, but provide attention-grabbing images to show off on blogs, in periodicals, or anywhere you find a promotional photo op!
Bright Light, Big Color: Using EV and White Balance to Make Your Photos True to Life
Taking a great photo is all about managing light. Nothing is more frustrating than photos that turn out too dark, too washed out, or off-color. It’s a particular challenge for sellers who have to use artificial light rather than natural light due to time constraints or inclement climates.

    Vadjutka's article was a real life saver for me. When I was preparing to open my Etsy shop, I was horrified to find that my photo taking abilities really sucked! My jewelry looked so terrible in those initial photos that I thought I was sunk. No $$ to pay a professional, I started hunting for help and found it here on Etsy. So glad I did as now I feel confident in my ability to take a great photo that is intriguing and representative of my work! Thank you!!!!!!!

    Thanks for the guide to making a $10 light booth - I've been taking pictures in bright sunlight, and I think that makes them a little washed out - the diffused light should really help. Also, a fellow Etsian let me know about Picasa (free on Google). Picasa is great for cropping and tuning pictures, and makes wonderful slideshows of family photos.

    Photography has been a hobby of mine for many years, but when it comes to shooting jewelry for my site I still run into problems. Conquering natural lighting from indoors is always a challenge for me. I am always interested in information on how to make it work! Thank you.

    Even after following all of these tips, I've found the best thing for my pictures is to resize them. Not only do they load faster, but they fit in the little squares better. I read the FAQ about this somewhere on here, and really like Picnik for this. You don't have to create an account (because I get enough email I don't read already!), and it is very easy to use. Thanks for all the help!
