Truth be told, I have a ton of things to put in my etsy but actually photographing them (well) and uploading them had been a slow process for me. I need to stay focused! A big chunk (not THE big Chunk) will be dedicated to getting my shop in order...YAY!!
I recently stitched up some baby hats. In my attempt to make the photos a bit more interesting, I used props. Yes, a stuffed monkey is the closest thing we have, in size, to the real deal. My goal was a close up head shot with maybe a bit of the flower and fabric in the background, out of focus, but in the frame. Sort of like this, but not so washed out.
However, as soon as I started to take pictures, this happened-
After taking the time to stop and enjoy the flowers, Boris starting attacking poor George. (All of our pets have jealousy issues.) So rather than run the risk of my stuff getting ruined or dirty, I resorted to just photographing them by themselves.
Based on the size and one experiment with an actual baby, I think that these are for newborns or very small infants.
This one is my favorite...it makes me think of crayons!
So, tell me what you think. Are these worth the time and effort, yes or no? Is it better with the props or without? I think I'm going to try the next round of these with a robot instead. It just seems more me! Is this something that people even buy for newborns? I don't have kids, so I'm a bit clueless when it comes to wardrobe choices made by parents these days. Basically, I make things that I think would cute. Whether or not they actually are remains to be seen, lol. I'll be taking custom orders too, just in case my saying are super lame.
I appreciate your feedback. Remember-questions, comments, and rude remarks are always welcome. So don't hold back!
Thanks for looking. I hope that you are enjoying a lovely weekend.
