Photography for handmade shops

Photography for handmade shops is really 2 in 1. It’s the most important thing to make sales and the WORST thing to learn how to DIY. Unless you’ve got experience behind the camera, it’s very likely your first product pictures looked too dark, too bright, out of focus, too yellow, too purple, too grey and the list goes on.
Photography can be a real pain but once you get it right – chaching!
In this week’s episode, we answer a question one of our listeners asked us over in our free Facebook community to help you take your product photography to the next level. Enjoy!
