Etsy Gift Guide - Tuesday Tips: Product Staging

Hello friends!

I'm back again with another Tuesday Tips for the Etsy Gift Guide Bloggers group. This week we are talking about staging our products.

I personally do not like plain white backgrounds when taking product photos. I feel like it is really boring, and no matter what I try, I always end up with weird shadows and colors.

For my photos, I use an inexpensive woodgrain posterboard that I got at Hobby Lobby for $3. It is the perfect size for taking pictures of what I sell, and it adds enough interest to the photos without taking away from the products themselves.

Pink baby album:

That brings me to my next pointer. The first image should only include your product. That way customers know what they are looking at right away. I find it confusing when the background is all cluttered on the first photo, especially when I find an item via search because I only see a small thumbnail. By keeping the first photo focused just on your item, I feel that customers are more likely to click on your listing because they can clearly see what they are getting. :)

That's it from me! Have a great evening!
