Summer holiday is almost here! It's time to pack my bags and make few handmade for my family and friends in Indonesia.
I always prefer to give handmade stuff even if it's small.
two of my sisters already told me to make them passport wallets :D

and I already order one Bag from my fave bag-maker bestie, BagStock . My mom loves her Saddle bag that I gave last year.
Black and white is always favorite. Last weekends, hubby's cousin came to visit me and she wanted wallet and pouch set in black and white and Blue. I showed her my photos from my previous custom order and she wanted same combo.
I really love this combo. I thought black, white and red is perfect but this linen blue and this chevron really look classic.
If you notice that stone car, it's my current fave photo props. I collected that stone when we went to Umngot River in Meghalaya few months ago. Hubby was laughing when I collected stones to take as souvenirs.
What is your fave photo props?

Photo props is really important, I feel, esp when you are selling online. But not too much. You have to make props that visually appealing yet not crowding your product that it takes away the focus.
I love my canvas board white background. And always try to take photos before noon in a room which does not have direct sunlight.

I have screen door in my sewing room that facing the front porch. I recently put an off-white lace curtain to block the direct afternoon sunlight. And that's my fave photo spot now. Since I got my new 50 mm lens, I love taking photos here.

As much as you can do not take photos with auto setting. Try to tweak the setting a bit and you will get perfect photos. Do take a look at your camera setting and try to search for online tutorial. YouTube is a great source of information.
Here, I give you sneak peek on how I did it. The photo below was taken using my Sony Pocket Camera. I put my canvas board near the screen door and I put a white card stock paper (it was bed sheet wrapper or whatever you call it).
The paper is a bit shiny so it gives perfect reflection. The white paper will sort of block the light from the door/window and reflect it back. It reduces the shades that you normally get when you take photos without one.
by the way, my handmade shop in Etsy will be closed from next week until end of July since I will be going for holiday. So until then do check my READY to SHOP section in my shop.
Thank for dropping bye
