I’m spending part of my day working on photos for the new Etsy account. How does one best represent a simple ornament? Do you hang them, prop them up, use them with other items? Do I try to make a background that’s a single color or use fabric or paper under the works? What will best help sell these little guys? What target market am I going for? This morning I had inspiration thinking about how people could use the ornaments. Why not for wine bottle decoration, gift box toppers, or wine charms? Take a look at what came up.
There were many images taken to pull out these three. I’m liking the color combinations between the blue flakes, satsumas and cedar branches. Oh and the Hosho paper is nice and soft looking. I admire so many sellers on Etsy because of their choices with displaying work. Color, texture and lighting all play a huge part. Will these choices make a difference with my work? Time will tell.
