Presentation is everything.. May I ask what type of camera you ladies are using to photo your product.. Does anyone use their phone camera and do you get great pic..Its a kind of hit and miss for me.. Also, do you have any tricks, tips for better, brighter pics or programs.. Thanks Ladies.. Hope you are having a terrific Tuesday..

Hey!

I use a Canon EOS 60D.  Which is probably more than a lot of people want to spend just to take photos of their work.  I don't think you need an awesome camera to take great product shots, but I wouldn't recommend a phone camera.  They've gotten pretty good these days, but you have much less control of your photos with them.   You want to make your products shine and reflect the amount of time and love that you put into creating them! 

I know there are some fairly nice point and shoot cameras that aren't terribly expensive.  I would do research and find one that offers you more settings than a phone camera would.  Or maybe some other members can offer you some suggestions.  I know there's always a learning curve when you get a new camera, but it's well worth it!!

Also!  Whatever camera you use, natural non-direct light is always going to look better than in-camera flash!

I use a Samsung point and shoot camera thing. Here is a post on Daft Crafts with lots of great product photography tips, and soon A Single Dream, the girl above me, is doing a photography series for Daft!

Thank You so much, a good camera is on my list of Needs and you are right you put your work into your art you should be able to present it beautifully thru pics, after all we are visual :).  Your pics and jewelry are beautiful, thanks for the information.. Have a good one..

I had one, but sold it. I couldn't figure out how to make it work for me!
