Today's Success is a must-read for those who need need quick tips to improve their photos.  

.The Right Camera
Jen Kiaba is a self-proclaimed camera addict and seasoned photographer. I recently asked her a few questions to help you choose the right camera to shoot your product photos. How much should you spend? What kind of features should you look for? Read on for the answers! 

.Photo Tips From the Forums
Etsy seller and Forum regular, elgarbo, gives the best photography tips! Here are his top five tips for better photos.
I also want to give "props" (sorry for the bad photo pun) to cleverbetty, who found and shared a very thorough Photography How-To in this Etsy Forum thread. Don't miss it! 


.A Few Tweaks 
The last step to a great photo is photo editing. Most photo editing software (check out this Etsy blog post for a list of free photo editors) have auto contrast, auto color, and auto level tools. Try those out. Also play with the cropping tool to create an interesting and bold composition (like the photo to the left). Cropping right into the item is usually more enticing than having an item floating in the middle of a product photo. Try  it!
