Does anyone have any suggestions/tips for photographing your work? I have a lot of my cookies documented and they are fine for my website, but really not great and I would love to be able to improve the quality of my photographs. I'm always in a bit of a hurry - photographing just before I bag them for a client. I've been using a plain white tablecloth w/ a big box behind so I can stand them up or photograph them on an angle laying flat. I try to use natural light as often as possible.
I do the same thing as you. Do you have any pictures to show what your current photographs look like?
Let's see if these images will load...I didn't have luck the last time I tried
OK, I don't know why I can't load images...I'm sorry!
I would also be interested in how people photograph their work. Some of the pictures are beautiful. I have tried various backgrounds and continue to struggle with the images and would love to try to put together a portfolio.
I use two sheets of white poster board. One laying flat, and one taped to the top of a tall box so that it curves when it overlaps the first sheet. Occasionally I will use natural light, but most of the time I use a tall lamp with settings. My camera is a 10 megapixel. After each photo is loaded onto my computer I do a little photoshoping to clean up any blemishes in the photo.
