As the bulk of what we sell are handbags and clothing I'm thinking this is a good place to ask. A few questions: what's the best way to light items such as handbags? I really strive to achieve a natural look and somewhat natural lighting in my photos but it's not always possible. Flash, no matter how I bounce it, etc, seems to render a harsh, unnatural look. It may be that I haven't fully mastered the camera yet. Also, how do you shoot items such as pants, shorts and slacks? Currently we show them on a hanger but I HATE doing this. It doesn't show the cut of the pant and doesn't show them in their best light at all. How do you feel about using models? I've considered having my wife put each pair on and taking pictures of her from the waist down to show the fit. Do you find that showing clothing items on another woman is a 'turnoff'?
