Another FANTASTIC idea from Goosie Girl for ramping up your photography of small items, such as hair bows, accessories, jewelry and more. Take your Etsy and Website photos to a new level and get more sales! Improve the appearance of those custom boutique and handmade item photos. Appear more professional in your presentation with my NEW idea.
I have a tutorial available for sale on my website:
and also in my Etsy shop:
Goosie Girl University on Etsy
which teaches readers how to create a miniature room for photography of small items such as accessories, jewelry, miniatures, etc.
However, I had another new idea which totally ROCKS and it is SOOOO inexpensive. I wanted to share it here on my Blog so that you too can try it & see what you think. I always appreciate feedback!!
We were in Menards the other day. For those of you not in my area, Menard’s is midwestern based big box hardware and contractor store. I came across these paneling samples!! I thought they would make a WONDERFUL floor drop for the type of photography that many of us in the custom boutique and handmade line of work need! If you don’t have a Menard’s, just go to Lowe’s, Home Depot or your local hardware store and ask if they have a section that carries paneling. In most bigger name stores, they will. Then just look for the samples. I found these hanging on a peg rack at the end of the paneling section. They measure 9″ high x 6″ wide. They sell these samples so that contractors can show potential clients their options (or so that you can take them home & hang them on the wall to be paneled and compare which you like the best!) .
They have SEVERAL styles available, I chose the 3 I liked best…
2 “bead board” styles in different colors: white & oak, and a faux stone style.
This is what they look like on the back
and this is what the “Castlerock” sample looks like in use!!
They only cost me from $1.19 – $3.00 each and they are AWESOME!!
I hope you like this idea, if you have any questions,
