{Article} How to Style Your Photos.

Good morning everyone!
Well, after a very long and challenging weekend spent updating and changing over my website to feature the new design and format, things are starting to pick up again.

Also, I'm really happy to mention that my first self-authored article has been uploaded to the Etsy Storque today.

So...if you have ever wanted to soup up your imagery (or, wonder how some sellers and designers style their photos) take a look! There are helpful tips on how to brainstorm your shot, how to set it up, and how to take it forward, and work further with your ideas. Enjoy! xx Susy


***See The Outcome*** Etsy seller Caroline Grace just posted a link to the photos where she uses tips from the article to style shots for her Falling Snowflake Earrings. So, take a peek! Simply lovely. Thanks for sharing, Caroline!

Congratulations with getting on the Storque!

There are several "how to take great product shots"-style articles out there, but yours stand out by focusing on the styling part of it. And you certainly showed us that you know what you are talking about, the photos used was gorgeous.

Great article, thank you so much! :)

Thank you!

I had the idea for writing the article a while ago, because I was having so much fun coming up w. scenarios for my products...I wanted to share!

I really hope it is useful, and fun for people to try.

Yes...I know...it's like 'okay, I learned to use my camera to take great photos...now what??"...that's where styling comes in to keep it fresh : )

Thank you! I have started to think about how to style my own product photos and this gives me a bit more focus. Now if I can just step up my photography skills :)
