I posted some crafts on my website -- http://www.ex-boyfriendcollection.com and wanted to ask you guys what you think.  I know some of the pics of the jewelry are a little hard to see but they are sparkly which means I get a bit of glare on them no matter how I try to photograph them.  Thanks for any feedback!

have you tried laying the bracelets on a flatbed scanner? that is how i get good images of my marble magnets.

just lay them image side down on the scanner and put a peice of construction or scrapbook paper behind them. it works really well for me.
i like your duct tape wallets very cute Grin

Thanks for that suggestion about the bacelets, I am not sure it'll work but I will try that later. The marbles make the bracelets tay circular so they won't lay flat on the scanner too well.

I love your logo--the smiling ex is hilarious! I think the site looks good, if you can boost up the pictures of the products you should be good to go. There is a great tutorial on taking professional style pictures yourself at http://www.theswitchboards.com/switchboards_home.html.

Thanks you guys!  I tried scanning the bracelets which didn't work at all.  I posted new pics of them though that I tried to take in different lighting.  Any better?  Still a trainwreck?  Scanning the wallets was more effective.  I am debating whether to leave the t-shirts as they are or post photos of the t-shirts.  I want the designs to appear as clear as possible which makes me think the way they are is better (t-shirt template with the original art that was used to make the silk screens) but let me know what you guys think.

Have you tried using a lamp for light,Keep it a distance away to avoid glare and try balancing your camera on something so that the image is less blurred. I know marbles are a pain to photograph,I end up taking around 20 shots of each braclet I do just to get one good shot.

A little bit of glitter goes a long way.

I've tried both of those things.  I guess I will try bugging one of my photographer friends about trying to take better shots for me.
