It's Crafty Business time again and this month we'll be getting snap happy. Photography is a stumbling block for many small crafty businesses and good photos are essential for online selling, so although we've done this topic before, I reckon it's well worth revisiting.
We're going to set up a makeshift home studio using simple, inexpensive equipment, and we'll look at how to compose a photograph and get the best out of your camera. Professional photography is a bit beyond the reach of most of us when we're starting out, but we'll learn a few tips and tricks that can help you brush up on your product photography until you can afford to hire a pro!
We'll need some products to test out our wee photography studio, so bring along some of your work to model – whether it's tiny and sparkly or bulky and textured, we're up for a challenge!
Have a think about what type of product you've had trouble photographing. What aspect of photography do you find most difficult? Post questions or comments here or on the Crafty Business wall on Facebook and we'll do our best to cover them on Monday (and follow up with notes here, for those who can't make it along).
So, come along to Board of Design at 16 Bedford Row at 7pm on Monday 2 August and join us for crafty company, business support and a glass of wine. And feel free to bring your knitting!
