Redoing Shop Photography
Sarrah Wilkinson - 2/7/2021
One of my big projects lately has been to go through the shop and redo a bunch of the older photographs. Part of this is because Etsy now has a preference for 2000px by 1500px images, and most of mine were between 800px and 1200px wide before, and part of it is because... well, the before and after photo kind of speaks for itself, doesn't it?
It amazes me how poor the older photos look, revisiting them after all this time. I'm not a great photographer by any means, and my equipment has always consisted of "whatever decent camera I could afford at the time" - which includes cameras that actually used, *gasp*, FILM. I'm old.
I have a pretty decent camera at the moment, with a 40x zoom that has allowed me to catch some pretty decent wildlife photos (I'll share some of that sooner or later!), but it just wasn't working that well for product pictures. So, I turned to my phone, and WOW... I was blown away by how nice the pictures turned out! It's just a Galaxy S10, nothing terribly fancy, but I'm glad I gave it a shot.
I'm far from done redoing the shop photos, but all of the buttons photos and most of the bookmarks photos are now done. In my completely biased opinion, you should definitely take a look at all the shiny new pictures. :3
