Shooting for Etsy

When you've been creating something, imagining it, designing it, physically making it, in order to sell it,  you need to convey all of what you've done with photographs. And if you are selling on Etsy, you are limited to only five.

When you try to photograph a handmade doll, just as it is in the creation of the doll,  there are many decisions to be made. The clothing, the pose, the background, the lighting, the position of the camera, the angle, the f-stop, the shutter speed... 


For now I've made one decision. I like the grey cotton backdrop, at least for this one doll.
