I thought that a good discussion would be about photos ( the bane for many of our existence) for selling on line.
I spend hours taking pics to get 10 good ones for 3 items LOL! I have gotten better over the last 4 years with the help of others and I am ALWAYS looking to improve. It is great to stay teachable. It will help one develop and evolve with the technologies that can be over whelming.
the photo is what draws people into your studio ( if they find you on TheFind or googlebase) which are shopping sites. All of our items are submitted to these engines. So I think to myself, how am I comparing to some of those pics? well, truth is, that I don't compare well enough. If you ever sneak a peak at the back section of my studio cctexan3, you will find some awful pictures. Until one day some wonderful person told me about Picasa.com
I had been using my MSN pic Manager for editing, but it just isn't the same when you try out a better editor. what do you use?
Also, you might learn your camera and how to use the macro button, the white balance and how to open your shutter ( or close it). I'm still struggling with that stuff too.
Sara did a thread on photos here:
tony has one as well: Photo Q and A
let us know what you do, or what you are struggling with, maybe we might all learn something new! Love and Peace Yall!!
