Not having the foggiest about such things, I've been reading The Crafters Guide to Taking Great Photos by Heidi Adnum. I've found it a brilliantly helpful book which in the first half gives clearly explained information about cameras, light, composition etc. The second half focuses on taking photos of specific craft products by topic such as bags, jewellery and fashion. Plus all the photos throughout are gorgeous and inspirational in themselves.

Yesterday I grabbed my camera and played around with my products, working their thang and styling them up, and trying to find the right mode and light. I need much more practise but came up with a few shots I like.

Hubby told me I should take the photos with no labels on. Do you think he's right?

I haven't got into my stride yet, or found the best light but I'm looking forward to much more practise as this was a lot of fun!
