Show It Off Tips for Photographing your Projects

By: Maria Nerius, Resident Craft Expert

Part of selling your work is your presentation to potential customers, so it's important that you put some thought into your displays for selling at art and craft shows and have crisp, clean images that you can post for online selling. Keep in mind that no display or photo can overcome poor workmanship. You have to put your best efforts into everything you create. But when you do, you want to make sure your customer doesn't silently wonder what it is and move on rather than taking the time to ask.

The first thing that comes to mind when I think of putting together a display or photo is, “Will the customer understand what the product is that I’m selling?” Some items must include a demonstration of exactly what or how the product is used. I see so many products just displayed or photographed in a haphazard way and I really have no idea what the product is or why I should buy it.
Note this example, do you know what it is?

Having some sense of size is important, too. When I make polymer clay figures, I include something like a coin, spool of thread, or even a tape measure in the picture.
