Photo Facelift

It’s amazing how new pictures give a fresh look to old inventory; an alternate view has the ability to catch the eye of a prospective buyer.  Something that has been viewed numerous times is shown in a new light and just like that it finds a home!

Rephotographing old inventory is something I’ve been meaning to do, but for lack of urgency it ended up becoming one of those things that fell by the wayside.  Finally the time has come to get this mini-project into motion!

First to go back in front of the lens: Flower Pot Covers.

I had gotten the idea for these little cuties back in ’09.  I had given them as holiday gifts for my plant-loving friends, along with placing several in my Etsy shop.  The original images were all taken with my old point and shoot, inside with a flash.  I rephotographed them outside with natural light.

Clearly, the new images speak for themselves!  I’ve swapped out the old pictures on Etsy and have begun listing them in my Artfire shop.  I’ve only had a couple of sales through Artfire, but that is due to my lack of interest.  I opened that shop several years ago but never gave it much attention.  Now that there is a monthly fee for sellers, I’ve decided to give it another go since its popularity has grown.

  1. Wow that is a huge difference!

    I usually can’t take pictures of my stuff until it’s dark outside because of my day job and the time of year it is, but I try to make due with desk lamps and white surfaces. Using flash is generally a bad idea because of how it will flatten your objects and give anything with a reflective surface a terrible glare.

    Love your new pics!
