Tip Tuesday at Creative Cutter Room ~ Photos

Good Morning Crafty Friends!

Welcome to Tip Tuesday.

Today, I would like to share a quick and easy tip on how to make your photos appealing to your visitors.

So much of our valuable time is put into creating our masterpiece, but displaying and sharing the project with others is just as important. Taking a good photograph can be the key. Just recently I discovered the importance and fun of creating a background for my photos. Now, please understand, I am not a professional photographer, but I sure do know what is eye appealing.
 I took the main colors and theme of my card and found items that matched. Since this is a birthday come to mind. I chose gift bags to use as the backdrop and ribbon for front flair. 
 Now, a clear photo of the entire card is necessary so others can admire your work too. I do not use a light box, but many other crafters do.
Get close-up shots of different parts of the card/project. I know when I am learning a new technique I want to see what it looks like so I can try.
 Try different angles too!
Hope you will explore with some fun backgrounds for your photos. Maybe you can try with our current challenge.

Stay Creative,
