Etsy Bloggers Picture Perfect Carnival

Welcome shutterbugs to the latest edition of the Etsy Bloggers weekly carnival. Our theme this week is Picture Perfect, a collection of photography tips.

Chantelle Finley offers tips on composing our photos with an artistic eye at Sixth & Elm: Photographical Evidence... posted at Sixth & Elm.

Kathy Johnston (Cozy) presents Camera Struggles posted at A Cozy Life. She blogs that learning to photograph your work isn't easy and shares some of her favorite photographers on etsy.

Barbra Sundquist presents MySpace About Me and More posted at MySpace About Me. Use those photos for more than just listing your wares. Barbra says, "Posting your photos at social networking sites like Myspace is an excellent way to promote your designs." She offers the basics of setting up your myspace page.

BeadJewelryShopgirl presents Chiaroscuro – a play on light and shadow posted at Bead Jewelry by Shopgirl. Add a little photographic drama inspired by this lighting technique from the Baroque period.

And finally, read First Impressions on Etsy here at Humblebeads for tips on creating a killer first photo. After all first impressions can be everything when you are selling online. Extra bonus: links to more photo tips than you can shake a stick at!

This concludes our blog carnival for this week, but there is more just around the corner! The next Etsy Blogger Carnival will be hosted by Nora Bella: Handmade Gifts for Babies and Kids. She challenges us to show off our crafty helpers!
