I use the camera in my phone. LG G8 ThinQ.Actually I appreciate the tips and explanations! Ramble on!
What device are you taking your photos with? I picked up an iPad mini. One thing I would like to learn is how to use it to take good pics of my bags.
With digital photos it's easy to adjust the Saturation setting to nothing, and have a black and white photo, which can be a nice change.
Some of my bags, I lay flat on a wooden table, or a blanket, or sheet, or oversize silk scarf and take a pic from directly above; but have to position myself so my shadow isn't in the picture - another reason not to have the lighting directly overhead. I'll post an example of that in a few minutes. It will be my Polene bag on a satin maxi skirt for one pic and on an oversized pillow for the other pic.
Some bags photograph better at an angle than straight on, so don't be afraid to try that. Bags with any detailing/hardware on the side generally fall into this category.
