I've learned a lot about photography in the three months I've had my Etsy shop, about good lighting, sharp focus, how to use props, and how to crop my photos to make them even more attractive. I know I have a lot more to learn yet -- when I look at other shops that have really awesome photography, I sometimes despair a little. But I keep trying, nonetheless. In fact, I'm starting to take new photos of some of my earlier listings, so that they look more interesting and appealing. For example, here's a comparison of an old photo and a new one for this hat:
See? I'm improving a little, anyway.
