  1. Hi, I need a little advice. I am trying to take really great photos my bags because I want to put them up on Ebay. I cant seem to find the right setting to get the best quality of the little details of the inside tags, serial numbers and close ups of the leather. I thought I saw a thread some time ago with detailed instructions on how to take pictures but I cant seem to find it.

    Any suggestions??:yahoo:
     
  2. Use the macro setting (usually represented by a pic of a little flower) to photograph details and close ups.
     
  3. i would recommend taking the picture indoors where there is sufficient lighting. turn OFF the flash, and take the picture on the auto setting. once you have a good picture of the whole bag and you want to take close ups, make sure to then set the camera to MACRO (there might be a little icon of a flower). don't get super duper close or the image will come out fuzzy. about 6 - 8 inches away should be good. macro makes the camera take sharper close-up shots, but it doesn't mean you'll need to be right up close to the object/label.

    good luck! :smile:
     
  4. Yes open blinds for full daylight, try not to have a multi coloured background as it distracts from main image and turn flash off then put macro/close up mode on and click away. Use zoom for getting small detail like hardware and labels.

  6. Yep, I just listed 10-15 bags on eBay in the last hour (what a pain in the !@#) and all my pictures came out fantastic. They were taken right next to my window in natural lighting with no flash. It's by far the best way to go.
     
  7. - take pictures in natural daylight only
    - never use the flash!!
    - for close ups of serial-numbers, date-codes, etc..use the macro setting!! (flower)
    - take several pics at a variety of angles, then choose the best one
     
  8. Good suggestions! I see to have a similar problem when trying to take cloe-ups. I will definitely use the macro setting next time! PF gals are so smart :yes:
     
  9. Thanks ladies...Im ready to start selling.:heart:
