Here's a pretty good tute for making a lightbox for jewelry & smaller items.  It's really easy (and cheap Smiley)

I made one this weekend & took a pic of one of hollyg9211's keychains, I got a while ago.
That's one spiffy ninja Smiley

I went on a mission to find THE keychain!  Sure enough, it was in Bella's bedroom (yes, our cat has a room, lol), along with various jewelry, hair ties, etc., that she had claimed as her own.  Well, you don't sell this one anymore, but I wanted to show ya the picture I took tonight anyway Smiley

I really like this one...'cause it pops!


Your ninja fan,

I don't think it's necesary to have models.  If you don't want them or don't have access to them, there are other alternatives! Smiley

Like they said, you could get a mannequin for cheap, or even free.  Or, you can make one from chicken wire, or duct tape (as some people on Craftster have):
If you make it slightly smaller than your smallest size, it would be "invisible" and only serves the purpose of filling the shirt out...so ya wouldn't see it in photos.

In your photos...
  • Make sure the clothes look "nice" (no wrinkles unless you actually intended for them to be there (see below)).
  • Try to use some better lighting (take the shade off of a lamp...the bare bulb will suit ya just fine Smiley)  This will just help illuminate your designs & get rid of some of those big overcast shadows, like on this one http://www.etsy.com/view_item.php?listing_id=60374  I know it's a pink design, but it doesn't scream PINK at me, I want it to yell at me when I look at it, lol.  Right now, the collar is yelling at me saying, "Look! I'm a white collar!"  Cheesy
  • Try to get rid of any background noise... if you can't actually remove the background, put your clothes on table cloth, or curtain Smiley  Unless you go entirely the other end of the spectrum & use grass or something as your backdrop.  But you get the idea Wink
Maybe take a full shot of the shirt, instead of just the design.  Then you could make an inset of just the design-close up.
I took this tshirt outta my closet to make an example  Cheesy  I find it really hard to get all of the wrinkles out, so I purposely MAKE wrinkles!  Smiley  They are soft, flowing wrinkles though, not "laundry wrinkles."

I wish I lived closer to ya, I'd take pix of all your stuff.  I love taking pictures & messing with them, but don't really feel inspired lately. *shrug*

Hi all,

Just a reminder, because it's that time of year when this thread will just start bustling again!...

Please, please, please remember to remove images when using the QUOTE function.

Once the quote comes up in your message box, just delete the line with the actual [IMG] tags (this is the line that tells Craftster to insert the picture again).  Smiley

Otherwise, we'll edit your message to remove them & send you a PM regarding  Wink

Woohoo!!  I have goodies to post now  Smiley  Thanks to the most fabulistic angel-rific person, Redstar13, I came home to a surprise today!!  I wanted some sort of artistic...artsy...earrings & she gave me exactly that!  AND, 2 pair!

Don't be jealous...  Cheesy

I'm not even sure what to call the one pair...so I have been referring to them as "Pink Confetti."  Fitting, don't you think?  They are so unique!
Thank you so much Redstar, these were exactly what I was wishing for *hug*

I got my tin from Stifflersawesomemomma...erm Stifflersmom today!!  Smiley  The package was rattling as I was opening it & it was driving me batty!  It was well worth it though...she did 4 out of my 5 themes!

Photography, Black & all that glitters, Bicycling, and Black & red  Cheesy  Thank you soooo much, I love it all... you're the best partner an Altoid tin-reconning partner could ask for! Grin

Here's the goodies...

The top portrayed my photography theme...with a sexy photographer (obviously, she was trying to imitate ME, LOL)

The flip side hit on cycling...and (it's hard to see in this image) glitter!  LOTS of glitter!  Smiley  The images of bicycles are so neat...all sorts, colors & sizes.

What's inside you wonder?!  Red, black, bicycles, jewelry...ahh!!  It's fabulous!  Glass beaded earrings & bracelet, a charm bracelet, and lots of little images of bicycles for me to use in scrapbooking & modpodging!  Smiley

Hmm...just what is that on the charm bracelet?  It's BICYCLES!!  Itty bitty shrinky dinky bicycles!  Even beaded with red beads to match my other jewelry.  One of them is a tricycle...he's the odd ball, he's the best Smiley

Thank you so much Stifflersmom...and thanks to Rackycoo for organizing as well.  Smiley

K...Bobolink received Friday, so I thought I would post pix.  Smiley  She wanted, "4- I have huge windows and a skylight in my new place. Something maybe to hang on them, but not too big- I don't want to take up window space. Bird themed would be awesome."

I made her an origami mobile for her skylight Cheesy

scanning....that's a thought.

I've got a brand new kodak digital camera.  After Christmas, I upgraded from 1.3 megapixels to 5.0 megapixels.

Ah.. nice upgrade!  Cheesy

For one of the swaps I was in, I was trying to take a picture of this Altoid tin I had beaded, but it just didn't look right...so I put the whole tin on the flatbed scanner... LOL.  I ended up showing the detail I needed tho:
