Taking photos for etsy

I was hoping to take some more pictures last night but life interfered. I have a light tent, but my photos still seem to come out on the dark side. I have been trying to lighten them up with picassa, but since most of our products tend to be on the light side, they just seem faded when they are lightened. The other problem is that when I try to lighten 3 or 4 different photos, it's hard to keep the soap and the background colors the same. I've decided we need more lights, so tonight (hopefully) I am going to try adding more lights and see what happens.

With this photo I tried using a lightly detailed background and the purple color came out the way I wanted it to.

With this Photo, I used a gray peice of paper as the background and the photo came out really dark. When I lightened it, it also lightened the purple rose.


  1. Maybe try using natural light. I take mine in my sunroom and couldn't be happier with them :)

  2. I constantly struggle with pictures! It is my biggest downfall! I keep trying and trying though!

    I've wanted to try making soap because we like it so much better. The handmade soap but I've not gotten around to it yet. How do you get the colors?? Like those beautiful pink roses?
