Staying Sharp: Achieving Clarity and Crispness in Your Photos

Feb 7, 2008

When you sell your craft online, photos are vitally important to your success. Without a physical item to touch and look at, your customers rely on your pictures as their tactile experience. Nothing will turn away a customer faster than a blurry photo with inscrutable details. Luckily, there are many solutions to this common frustration that can help you achieve a sharp, crisp, and alluring photo.

Set-up Solutions

Lighting: Good lighting is essential, because without it, your camera can’t capture the fine details and different tones and values of your item. A good source of light can be as simple as a bright windowsill. Direct sunlight, however, can wash out and overexpose your photo, so take care to either shoot on overcast days or diffuse the light with a sheer curtain or a piece of tracing paper taped to the window. Achieving good light levels indoors is trickier, but can be done inexpensively with a DIY lightbox and a pair of high-wattage full-spectrum industrial or shop lamps. When shooting indoors, be sure to have at least two sources of light, one on each side of the item, to avoid harsh shadows. Take advantage of your camera’s exposure values scale and white balance as well (see Bright Light, Big Color: Using EV and White Balance to Make Your Photos True to Life).

Tripod: Snapping a sharp photo requires a steady hand. The slightest movement of your hands or body, even the simple act of depressing the shutter, can result in “camera shake” – the blurring of an image that occurs when the lens is moved while the shutter is open. A tripod solves this problem by providing a stable base for your camera. The camera is affixed to the head of the tripod, so your hands are off the camera until the shutter is depressed. Tripods come in all sizes, from floor models ideal for taking shots of large items such as clothing or art, to tiny table-top models that are great for jewelry and other small items. In a pinch, if you don’t have a tripod, a bag of rice or other bean-bag type surface placed on the table top or on a stack of books can provide a stable enough base for you to angle your camera and snap a sharper photo.

In-Camera Solutions

Macro Mode: Taking clear photos of very small objects, such as jewelry, can be difficult unless you utilize your camera’s macro function. Read through your camera’s manual to determine how to switch your camera into macro mode. The icon for macro mode usually looks like a small flower. By switching your camera into macro mode your camera will be able to focus on objects as close as 2cm away, depending on your camera model.


Left: Photo taken with default camera settings. Right: Photo taken in macro mode.

Focusing: Most contemporary digital cameras have a two-step focus function that enables the user to select precisely what part of the item they want in focus. Try depressing the shutter button of your camera only halfway down, and watch for one or more rectangles to appear on the camera’s screen. The part of the image within the rectangle will be in focus. Once you see this rectangle, fully depress the shutter button. Generally this rectangle will appear in the centre of the screen, but if you want the focus of your image off-center, simply move your camera to the left or right while keeping the shutter button half-depressed, then press down all the way when the image is arranged as you wish. You may need to practice this technique several times before achieving a consistent result.

Remote Shutter Release/Timer: If camera shake is your main enemy, you might consider purchasing a remote shutter release for your camera. This is simply a button on a cord that when plugged into your camera, allows you to depress the shutter without touching the camera at all, completely eliminating camera shake. You can also achieve a similar result by utilizing the timer on your camera.

Depth of Field: Ever see those artsy photos that are sharp in one part of the image, and blurry everywhere else? You can create that effect by utilizing depth-of-field. Depth-of-field refers to how much of the area in front of or behind the subject of the image is in focus. A “shallow” DOF means that very little of the image is in focus – perhaps only the item itself, or even just a small part of the item. A “deep” DOF means that most of, if not all the image is in focus, including the foreground, subject, and background. DOF can be complicated to understand, but essentially it is composed of a geometric sequence called “f-stops,” which describe focal length divided by the aperture diameter.


Left: Photo taken using f-stop f/8, resulting in a deep depth-of-field (in focus from back to front). Right: Photo taken using f-stop f/2.8, resulting in a shallow depth-of-field (in focus up close, blurry far away).

The smaller the f-stop (i.e. f/2.8), the shallower the DOF. The higher the f-stop (i.e. f/16), the deeper the DOF. If you have a manually operated digital camera or a camera with an “Aperture Priority” mode, you can take advantage of DOF to create some great photographs. To get that sharp-in-front-blurry-in-the-back effect, switch to Aperture Priority and set your f-stop as low as it can go. In most cameras without an add-on macro lens, f/2.8 is the lowest possible setting. Focus the camera carefully on one part of the item by depressing the shutter halfway as described previously, then snap your photo. Again, this can take some practice but the effects are worthwhile.

Post-Processing Solutions

Photoshop: Levels: Using the Levels function in Photoshop can help to bring out the details in too-dark or too-light photographs (for tips on how to use Levels, see this article).

Photoshop – Unsharp Mask: Although the name seems counter-intuitive, the unsharp mask function in Photoshop is the quickest and easiest way to sharpen your photos during post-processing. Unsharp mask uses a combination of sharpening and blurring edges to increase contrast, whereas the sharpen function only sharpens, which can lead to unwanted edge pixelation. There are three controls that make up unsharp mask: amount, radius, and threshold. The amount slider controls how much contrast is enhanced. It can generally be left between 100-150%. The radius is the most important slider, as it designates how far to look for anything that might be considered an edge.


Left: Photo before using Unsharp Mask. Right: Photo after using Unsharp Mask. 

This means that a low resolution image should have a lower radius setting than a higher resolution image. A good rule of thumb is to take the photo resolution and divide by 200. Set the radius at the resulting number. For example, if resolution is 180dpi, set the radius to 0.9. Threshold basically withholds the results of the other two sliders, so it can usually be left at 0, unless you have unwanted grain in the photo that needs smoothing. Be cautious to not over-sharpen your image, or it will look pixelated – good sharpening is subtle and enhances the photo without overpowering it.

Final Tip: Practice, practice, practice! One of the great advantages of digital photography is that you can take endless numbers of photographs with no waste, so don’t hesitate to take the time to figure out which of these techniques can work for you.

Happy snapping!

    A lot of peoples number 1 problem on etsy is not using enough light, so i am glad you addressed this first. Often i see people throwing all kinds of tips and ideas out there, when the photo would be 100x better if they just used more light. Lets not forget after all, "photo" means light.

    terrain said 9 years ago

    Thanks everyone and thanks to the Storque folks for publishing it! I am really just an amateur though compared to the many amazing and talented photographers here on Etsy. I agree with Abitabite about light - a good source really does solve most problems. Sunny days can be few and far between where I live so I use a combined total of 500 watts to shoot indoors. Eclipse, you can do lots with even just a basic camera - mine is only 3.2 mgp. I'll be upgrading soon though!

    Good article. I agree that Depth of Field can make pictures look a lot better but, you have to make sure you don't go overboard. I have seen some pictures on here where the DOF is so shallow that it is no better than having a blurry picture. Also, having a picture of the item (if its jewelry) on a person really helps the viewer get a better idea of the piece.

    What backgrounds are you folks using for your photos? I'm seeing some nice neutral colors and patterns, but where are you getting them? And do you take them outdoors and take the photos there? Is black velvet out of favor?

  • sterlingsunjewelry

    sterlingsunjewelry said 8 years ago

    Thanks for this! I knew about most of this but will now check my camera for manual f-stop settings. Plus, the Unsharp Mask info is v. helpful.

  • sterlingsunjewelry

    sterlingsunjewelry said 8 years ago

    Re- black velvet. The trouble is that when you're in macro, any teensy tiny little speck looks like a football and things you never thought were there will turn up on the image loud and clear! I found that velvet was terrible for this even after I'd brushed it to oblivion. So far, some of my best results have been with a saturated color (black or rich brown), non-reflective paper bought at an art supply store.

Last week my pics LOOKED like I just didn't care, the ones I took yesterday and today look exceptional. And it's the SAME camera, just using the tips in this article. Amazing result from a $0 investment!

  • PhotographicAnomaly

    PhotographicAnomaly from PhotographicAnomaly said 4 years ago

    one thing i see much of -- on another famous selling site as well... is MACRO/ 'Close Ups' done wrong - in point and shoot digital cameras like many of us have are different than in old days of SLR and big manual focus macro lens. Now we must use MACRO (little flower symbol) (dont bother -ever- with DIGITAL macro! or DIGITAL Zoom - UGH!) the trick is always be zoomed out never try to Zoom in with MACRO Mode! just move camera closer til you have what you want in your frame and press half way for pre-focus - SEE IF it puts the green box (in focus area) on what part you want in focus most; if not move camera a bit and press half way again for pre-focus - maybe this will take time to get exactly, but after a while you will find what your after. (if you think your settings are messed up - just turn off camera and turn back on some will reset and you can start over; No worries ) this same pre-focus type 'action' will work for metering light on subject. sometimes i shoot my black cats in bright sunlight coming in door and i have to meter for carpet or 1/2 in 1/2 to get a shutter speed that gets good exposure. the best ISO speed is usually 200 for nearly all camera sensors - so I have read. this may be most important when shooting products and the need for tripod and white cards for "Fill Light' or reducing bright spots (black cardboard or grey too) and getting the true detail on objects. my older Canon SD1100 has a Manual "M" mode and I shoot on that all the time now. its still hard to force these point and shoot compact camera to give me depth of field - increasing the ISO 'up' to 400-800 didn't give me more as one might think. I used to have a studios to shoot in and lights and back drops! and not having those to work with makes one rig up ways to get objects photographed with no cash. I do like it that we can buy "Daylight' colored bulbs for household lights - so anyone with a clamp light can make a studio set up - the back drop issue still has even me frustrated and i have a white paper backdrop set up - but no where to set it up as stand are large. FOR TALL THIN ITEMS? a long piece of paper like news print on end rolls from newspaper office (sold by pound) can be draped up/down and a dowel rod at top or curtain rod can hold it up there - yes its off white and more fragile than real back drop paper but it will work if you dont have a dog and or cats actively helping you.. :) you may need more lights or have to think it through - over cast days are best if outside. I have seen someone say use Hi Speed ISO when outside in bright light - I DO NOT know why; but that is wrong! it washes out the image (overwhelms sensor) to an unworkable file. if your TALL THIN ITEM is able to lay flat you can lay on concrete and use ladder to photograph from above. *but it may not always be right for that item. remember the better photograph you take the less editing time to get it ready to post. Don't be like what a old friend said: basically: shoot bad pix and do all the work in PhotoShop! that is a backwards philosophy and not everyone can work fast or long to "Fix" bad photos. Like another seller said on other post - you gotta 'factor photo and editing time into cost of your items'

    my pet peeve by sellers is photographing their wares on very busy backgrounds or on backgrounds that are too close to the same color as the item. This does NOT enhance your item, it makes it much more diffcult to see and buyers will loose interest. keep your backgrounds PLAIN so you can showcase your work.

    Great information. I designed jewelry 25 years ago (don't do the math/I'm still 18) And I was very successful. I sold to the best stores, had a long list of celebrities who purchased and wore my jewelry, was in magazines, you get the idea. Then I had an amazing opportunity to co-author 10 + Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul books. It was an amazing ride which ended, like all things do. I went on to write 4 well received books (some of which are still selling) but after I had written everything I had in me for teenagers I find myself wanting to return to jewelry design. Figured I would just pick up where I left off, with a short re-entry period. Instead I found myself in a brand ne world. There was no internet back then and def. not any "On-line" stores. You coudn't purchase findings and materials by simply going on your computer. I could go on. I plan to write a blog. I AM going somewhere here. I've worked so hard. I have amazing jewelry (I'm partial) and I have done everything I have read that I should. I've spent money on ads, taken pretty good pics, take time with my listings.....but I'm not used to selling along side 10's of thousands of other designers. Honestly , it's tad overwhelming. (Can I offer payment plans or make an offer?) I ask only because so much of my success was based on my people skills. Working with the customer, because I LOVED doing that. I'm beginning to ramble (there's so much more that I'll save for the blog) I want any suggestions, feedback, answers, etc. that you can give me. It's lonely selling on Etsy.......wink wink

    Good info, but f-stop is a function of the lens, not the camera. I hope I can get a good shallow depth of field with f4. F2.8 sounds like at least another $1000.00 dollars to me! Good advice on relatively inexpensive lighting. It's harder to take good photos than a lot of people think, and requires practice. I am always amazed at the fine quality of photos on Etsy. It's a discipline unto itself. A good photo is an absolute necessity and the introduction to the rest of the supporting information. Thanks for the article!
