On of the biggest challenges of selling online is trying to get good photographs.
It was one of the main reasons I signed up for the photography class I'm taking.
I have wanted to retake the pictures I have of my bibs forever,
but struggled with exactly how to do it.
I wanted to make them stand out from the crowd but still be clear, sharp and not cluttered.

When I was out garage sale-ing one Saturday (the one time a year I go),
I picked up this frame that I thought would be perfect.
I'm not sure I like it.
For sure the white fabric background has got to go.
I've always used white tagboard but I didn't have enough on hand for a full background.

This is what I've had before.
While I loved having a baby pose for me, it is about impossible to get my toddler to cooperate.
As you can see, my coloring is slightly off here.
As soon as I get my act together, I'm going to send some bibs down to a friend of mine.
I'm going to have her take some stock photos to use as the last picture in all the bib listings.
I like being able to show what they look like when worn.

After a few hours of trying different photos, this is what I ended up using.
Not my fav, but it'll do the trick until I figure something else out.
Some day, I'll get it right.
