Etsy Automat

It's midnight and I've been wrestling with my piece O' crap camera for over an hour trying to take pictures for the new Etsy shop. I'm giving up with only three items listed. I'll try to post some more goodies tomorrow if I can find a spotlight, sunlamp and light saber to brighten the pictures with.

I'm loving your stuff already! Just some advice on pictures....... I take every single picture of the things I put on Etsy outside. The natural sunlight is usually perfect. Not having the sun shining hard on it but indirectly. No need for a flash and the color is usually right on!

I hope this helps ya..... it can get frustrating! I'm shopping at your place today....... I'm dying to see what else you have too!

can i ask what kind of camera you have and what software you're using?

taking pictures in RAW mode and then fiddling with them in photoshop works wonders - raw keeps all the data right there, so if you wished you'd taken a longer exposure - it can do it!

barring all that - a tripod with a long exposure time can make up for all sorts of bad lighting. let the shutter stay open long enough, and enough light will get in, no matter how dim it is.

I'll reiterate what Raine asked and said. The images look fine on my computer, it could be your monitor not your camera.

My camera is a 5 year old Kodak Easyshare with autofocus. I'm taking pictures outside today and the difference in focus is HUGE. (I reposted the Pink Glass Button Ring picture after taking the outside shot.)

Thanks all!
