Etsy Photos

Photographing for my etsy shop… its gotta be a little different from the boring grey tones for me.  Yes I know the grey has it’s place… the galleries, the books… but for etsy, I’m thinking color, and the appeal of  it, for the general public.

The patterns on my biodegradable urns are made from paintings I have done on paper.  I thought, wouldn’t be cool to use that same paper as background for the photos.  I like the results!

Etsy Listing

Every few months I set my mind to taking photos and getting more work into my etsy shops… yes there are two shops now.  The first shop, FoodieCeramics opened in the fall of 2010, and the more recent shop, LuciaUrns opened a few months ago in January 2012.  In terms of representing all of my work, the luciaurns shop is not quite there yet.  I have the biodegradable urns listed, but need to get more photos up of the classic urns.  The foodieceramics shop is starting to pick up, I try to re-list at least one item a day so my work stays somewhat visible in the search engines.  I really think I should be listing  five times a day though if I really want to sell well on etsy!  I am always so busy with all the other aspects of my pottery business that I never seem to have enough time.

The other day I took photos for three hours, here is a little slideshow of what you may be finding in my shop soon.
