or: Earrings..Sometimes it is all about Size
I've been thinking about how to display my earrings
in my Etsy shop, and I've decided that I need to include
1) front shot..nice and clear and dramatic..."clickable and alluring"
2) side/ depth shot...show the dimension of the piece
3) back detail....cause us detail divas need to see the craftmanship!
and the Biggie....
4) size.....who puts a ruler up to their ears
when they are thinking about buying earrings? I mean, really!
so, in lieu of having a model with perky ears
on hand every time I take pics,
I had a friend take a picture of my ears...
(thankfully I have cute ears...)
I sized the image to life size,
printed the image...
poked a hole where the piercing would be
(and digitally erased all my other holes....
my badges of honor from the '80's)
Now, I always have an ear model...
there is no "ick factor" ,
because the "model" is a piece of paper
and she works cheap...for Q-tips!
