That elusive Etsy shot....

I know, sorry, we're back on the subject of photography again. It has become somewhat of an obsession with me lately! Being found on Etsy may be problematical for SEO reasons but, once found, you want to be CHOSEN! You want to be in Treasuries so you have to take really good photos. And not just any good photo, it has to be in that certain Etsy style because all those lovely people making Treasuries want to make it to the Front Page!

I think I'm beginning to get there:

This necklace came out quite well!

This one has even been picked for a few Treasuries already:

Black Onyx & Red Jasper Necklace

I rather like this one:
Silver Cube Necklace


I've also been going back to older listings and just taking that one Etsy style shot:

Calla Lily Earrings


Silver fringe & ruby necklace














White background, lots of light, no props and then play with it in Photoshop! We'll see how it goes.

    1. Thanks, Lise! That one started off as a completely different idea and just morphed into what it is now.

  3. Amazing photos! The light background is very important, if you want to include selection treasuries!

    1. Thanks Christina! I find the light background a bit boring, myself but, if I want to be in Treasuries, it will have to stay. If you want to sell on Etsy you have to be in Treasuries.

  4. Thanks for sharing, and job well done! I think with jewelry the lighter background is always very helpful. Depending on the products sold sometimes can also determine the background used....just so it isn't too busy that it is distracting.

    Thanks again for sharing, and have a wonderful weekend!:)
