Book: The Crafter's Guide to Taking Great Photos: The Best Techniques for Showcasing Your Handmade Creations by Heidi Adnum
Better photography is the solution to selling more online. Learn to shoot better photos with this guide, full of tips and advice written specifically with the crafter in mind.
Crafters can have a unique and original product and still have a difficult time finding buyers amid the sea of handmade crafts online. Beautiful handmade items can be undermined by poor or uninspired images that fail to represent their detail and craftsmanship.
The Crafters's Guide to Taking Great Photos teaches readers how to get quality, high-end results without needing professional equipment or a photo studio. Crafters will learn how to make their own lightbox, avoid camera shake without a tripod, use natural lighting, and properly capture the detail in their work. Sections on specific craft areas give readers advice on generating eye-catching images for their products.
In a challenging and competitive marketplace, better photography will boost crafters' online sales, and The Crafter's Guide to Taking Great Photos will help them achieve success.
