Foto (Photo) Friday: Part 2 July 18, 2010
Hi everyone! So part one I showed different items on mostly wooden backdrops. In this post I will show you different backdrops, items, and give you more tips. In this post I will show you some of my knits and different ways I took photos of them. The first item is a personal scarf of mine I knitted about a year ago:
This scarf was also wraped around a tree, but I let the tree show a bit this time. I also got closer in to caputure this flower detail stiched onto the end of the scarf. In this photo you can tell the color of the scarf, that its thin, and the detail on the ends. Sometimes you don’t need a full frame picture of an item to create a nice shot. A great time to taking a shot this close is use that zoom button, but only the picture become alittle blurry zoom out alittle and remember to keep the camrea as still as you can. I shot this without a tripod, but a tripod is a great tool to keeping everything as still as possible and your photo won’t be blurry. The next items are three knitted braclets and they have a different backdrop and two different angles that I shot them at:
This backdrop is just a smiple piece of white fabric. You can use a sheet, pillowcase, shirt, or just a piece of fabric. Crop the photo so the item is the main foucs. Rember you don’t need the whole item in the shot. So the fact that the yarn is cut off in the 1st pic is on. The next photo is a nice way to show how the braclet will look on. Agian you don’t need your whole hand or arm in the photo. you want to make sure you can see the braclet clearly. Of course I took this photo with one hand and later on went into a photo editor and cropped it down. The item at hand is always center of attention so zoom in, crop around the item, and make it look good.
Well thats all the photos and tips for this Foto (Photo) Friday. I made have more items next Friday or maybe a different subject all together. Thanks for reading the blog and I hope I helped someone out. One more good tip is take seveval photos you can always hit delete if you don’t like one.

Should I make an Etsy Shop? July 14, 2010
Some of you know this item from a previous post. I am going to make this is different colors with different pins as closers. The cost for this item is 1.50 and shipping will be 1.00 so this item cost all in all $2.50.
These knitted drawstring bags are lined with fabric and have a braided drawstring. The cost for these are 1.00 and shipping is 1.50 so total cost $2.50. I have different colors of yarn and fabric you can customize your bag to your liking.
Theses are just some examples of items I am wanting to sell and how much they cost. Any of the crafts I have made and posted on this blog I am willing to sell. My prices are very cheap as you can tell. I want to stay cheap until I grow a bigger business. I will offer more items. If you want to look at other items, my yarns, or my fabrics Check out my facebook. Please be honest and tell if you would by anything or if you would not. This is my money and time I am putting out and I don’t have much money to be using up posting items in a shop no one will buy. Thank you for commenting and I hope there are enough of you out there willing to buy something so I can open my shop. If you say you would buy something it doesn’t mean you have to buy that item as soon as I open….that would be great, but I am not holding you. I just want to make sure my items are sellable and wanted. Okay so I have a long enough post thanks agian.
