Finally.... spring skirts are blooming in my "state of the art" production facility (kitchen)!! It's time to send them into the Etsy shop to meet the risk of a sale..
The Etsy gurus say a good shot is the most important element for a successful shop. My photography skills are marginal at best, but I am willing to learn and practice. Other bloggers recommend Photoshop, but it is expensive and my husband says it's a whole learning world unto itself.
So, it's me, my humble camera and a low cost model, my daughter.
I bribed her with some snacks and a promised trip to Dad's office and off we went on our Spring 2010 fashion shoot.
My past involved plenty of fashion shows/shoots where I was behind the scenes more than in front of the camera. Either way, you learn there is a lot of stuff that needs to go along to make the sesssion successful.
You need lots of clothing options, accessories, props, iron, snacks, music and good lighting.
Kate was very cooperative and she had some fun dancing to Will Smith....We tossed fairy wings on Kate to accessorize the Mac & Fitz lilac skirt.
She ran around the shop like she was Tinkerbelle or something....
Next was the blue, chocolate and yellow Mac & Fitz daisy skirt. There was just general hopping around and working the camera to my pleading..."Jump! Again!
No, on the blue mark on the floor!"
I felt like Austin Powers...."Yeah, Baby, Yeah!!"
How about this saucy hat I found in the dollar section at Target? Awesome prop! She ran in a sunny area of the shop and the colors of the Mac & Fitz fuschia and orange skirt popped!
Another great find at Target....cheesy plastic St. Patrick's Day hats! The green looked wonderful with the bright blues and apple greens on my newest Mac & Fitz spring skirt. The oversize navy rick rack trim is so cute, too.
Kate is hamming it up next to Dad's big rig...What a prop!
Kate is striking a pose on the ever popular prop, a yellow forklift truck....
A great background to the sugar & spice Mac & Fitz skirt she is modeling....
As long as the treats keep coming, the model will cooperate. Kinda like working with animals...
