Photo's how do they impact your online sells??

A Picture is worth a thousand words is an understatement when you are trying to sell your handmade pieces online. You have to have very good pictures in order to capture the detail of your work. It has to grab the person and say take me home, its not like you can pick it up and hold it or try it on. So the quality of picture is extremely important if you are trying to sell online. I had tried my hardest to get some what I thought was pretty good photos of my work, but I still am not getting the sales I think I should. So I reached out to a friend who is a professional photographer and she took a few pieces to photo. Oh MY!!! I think they look awesome and really pop I believe this will be eye catching to buyers.
What do you think?? How do you photo your pieces to make them speak to people?? I haven't posted this to my etsy shop but I am hoping that it will drive some sells. Please feel free to leave comments on what tips you have for online sells.

  1. Photos are what I struggle with the most. I have not found a good way to get good photos of my glass or my jewelry. Still trying. Great pictures of these pieces.

  2. I love the earrings, but struggled with the first picture to decide if it was a bracelet or a ring. There is no real since of scale. Pretty photo, just confusing.

  3. I adore the blue on those flowers! What wonderful color. Is that a patina? or did they come that way? Just beautiful.
    I admit, I also wasn't sure if the first pic was a ring or a bracelet...

    1. No the flowers are purchased in raw brass then I painted them with lumiere paints.

  4. There is of course no substitute for a professional who will have the equipment and experience to make the most of any subject. It is possible to learn to improve your own skills and there are many helpful posts and videos out there, Tiffany.

    I had assumed picture #1 was a ring, but after reading other comments I am not sure anymore. They are both really pretty!

  5. I think it does really help to have good photos, but when I'm looking at jewelry, "good" for me means in focus and multiple pictures from different angles, so I can get a good idea of how a piece will really look.
