I have sold, both on Ebay and Etsy for years, but my photos have been just so so. I decided with my new shops, I will start fresh with good photos from the beginning.
Today was a good day for outside pictures because it's been overcast. No shadows or glare to deal with was a huge plus...not that it mattered much for the quilts, but I always appreciate a day like this. Here are a few, showing details and pattern.
|Shabby to some but perfect for primitive craft making|
|Showing front and a little of the feed sack backing.|
|Colors are still vivid where there is pattern|
|There's that "preferred" staining.|
I could probably use a new camera. It would be so much better if I had control to focus on small objects like jewelry. It took me a lot of tries to get these in focus with my old point and shoot (Canon Power Shot A30), but somehow I managed.

So, what camera do you use for photographing items for your shops or blogs? I'm ready to go shopping for a new camera. Comments with your suggestions are greatly appreciated.
