I'm Learning.

I've been trying to up my photography skills. Here are a few experiments. I think they are okay; I'm trying to achieve a moody feeling. Part of the reason I'm pushing myself to learn more is because I want to start selling my products online. I've been pondering it for months, but can't decide how I want to do it. Should I use Etsy, my blog, a website? Its all so confusing. I also have an idea of the look I want for my site, but haven't been able to achieve it yet. You know I don't just want to place objects in front of a white background with bright lighting and call it a day. I guess I want it to tell a story...create a mood. If you're wondering why I'm writing all this, its because I felt it would help me get on with it. I'm trying to get out of my head, and move forward. Unfortunately, I often get stuck in my own thoughts. I need to move forward. If anyone has any thoughts, suggestions, or critiques; please let me know. Feedback is a good thing.

Your photographs look AMAZING (you should sell those too)! I think you can use all three outlets (blog, etsy, ebay) to your advantage!

I have not experience in etsy or other s but pictures are really important.
I bought a ring by a blog and the photo was very good.
Do you have a tripode ?
Warm light is great and picasa has a very easy way to put a warmer ton in any picture.

Think it's wonderful that you're playing with different photography techniques, and how exciting to be starting an online shop!

I love your blog. I'm adding it to my favorites right away. So glad I stumbled upon you.
Your photos are fantastic- I believable you achieved "moody"- you certainly got my attention!

I don't do a good job with product photos but I always liked the ones that were place somewhere, like a necklace with rocks, etc.

But don't do all of the product photos fancy like that, make sure one is a simple and straight view of the product. I always felt a little cheated when I could get a good idea of the product.
