New Pieces, Better Photos
In furniture news, I have recently finished a few new pieces and made arrangements with a photographer near my shop to start having my stuff professionally shot. What a difference it makes. Over the last year, I had gotten a little better with my photo skills and had a nice set-up with lights and several backdrops, but I was still having a problem with getting the whole piece of furniture in focus (particularly larger stuff) and with no harsh shadows.
Anyway, I think they came out really nice and while it is a hassle to haul everything to the studio prior to shipping or delivery, it will be worth it. I was also able to use a few of the good photos in a new Ad I'll be running in 2008 in 2 magazines: Arts and Crafts Home and the Revival and Style 1900.
