New photo set up

OMG, I must be serious about this on line selling.  I've rigged up a semi-permanent photo box/station.  I got some really good Daylight flood lights at Home Depot and they do the trick.  The glazes look great under them.  Not too dark or washed out.

Looks sort of professional, doesn't it?

My husband built the frame work from dowel rod and PVC joints.
It will fold up flat to store if necessary.
I have been taking pictures outside on cloudy days.  Which was fine but some of the colors just didn't look right.  And then was there always the wind to deal with or heat or cold.  You get my drift!  Now there is no excuse for not taking pictures.

I generally use a white background.  That seems to make all the colors show up.  A piece of white paper clipped to the back of the frame and pulled forward with a box underneath for things to stand on.  That gives a seamless background which works for most things.

See, works pretty well!

So I'm in the process of going through all my pictures and retaking as needed.  Don't you wish you could help!!


  1. Isn't it great?! So much better than how we "used" to take pictures. I don't know how I made it long as I did without my lightbox. Mine's not as fancy as yours. I used foam boards, cardboard, and tissue paper. You must have missed that post.

    I can't tell you how many times I redid my pictures. Countless I'm sure!

    Your other pics weren't hurting your sales any though! But this will be more comfortable for you :)

  2. Awesome! I still need to work on my photos.
