An Excellent Etsy Photography Tutorial

If you have a Digital SLR camera and need some pointers on how to get the best photos for etsy? are in luck!

Our FEST member, Heather, of GreenHeathTreasures has written an excellent tutorial -

Etsy Photography.

Her guide focuses on white balance, ISO speed, lighting and editing. She even explains how to adjust sizing so etsy's auto crop won't change the effect you have created.

The diagrams and detailed instructions provide an in depth method to getting fantastic views of your artwork.

If you are a novice photographer like me with a very basic camera and a magical "macro" setting that makes me appear to have some photo skills, Heather's tutorial may seem daunting at first. Read it through a few times and you will pick up a few tips.

If you have a SLR camera you can really benefit from her instructions!

Thanks Heather for your hard work putting this tutorial together.

Enjoy a new listing from Heather's shop.
