Getting ready to add to Etsy…

…means taking a lot of photographs to get the ones I want to use for my listings. For earrings, I am trying to show scale, how they hang, and to capture a fair representation of color using different backgrounds. Once the photos are taken I go over them all to weed out, edit, and adjust until they are how I would like them.

In the last two days I took 434 photos. Tonight I’m editing. Thank you little digital camera and iPhoto!

I’ve made my way through about 2/3 of the photos, but it’s time for bed.  Tomorrow I’ll spend the day off the island to get some groceries and visit my mom. I plan to start listing some earrings tomorrow night.

  1. It’s a tiring process–isn’t it? I’ve got so many items to list that I don’t even want to think about it. I keep hoping that those items sell at markets and so far, that’s what’s been happening!


  2. lovely earrings…counting the days!


  3. I believe listing on etsy is the worst part of the entire process! :) Your close-up shots are beautiful, as are the earrings!

      I agree. Once they’re listed then I’m satisfied. But it doesn’t help to keep building up inventory and put off listing it.
