Krrb Presents Quick Tips — How-to Photograph a Small Object for Sale

Professional photographer and Krrb member Amber Marlow gives us a few tips on photographing small objects for sale. Good photography is key when selling online. Start with bright lighting using photography lights, task lighting or head outside for natural light. When photographing a small object, remember to capture scale and detail. Hold the object next to your hand so people see its relative size. Also take note of intricate details of your item and get photos of the front, back and base. Be sure to check out Amber’s first lesson — photographing a item without structure like a shirt, blanket or curtains.
