For a crafter turned small business owner, photography takes on a slightly different role. Your creations may take a painstakingly long time to finish. You may agonize over every tiny detail, until everything is just right. Once your item is completed, you aren't done yet. The next, and arguably the most important, step is photographing your product.

Next, I position my two reflectors to bounce light back at the item I'm photographing. I did not pay for a fancy reflector, and I used what I had available. I use my daughter's dry erase board, and a blank white canvas. When you position the reflectors, move them around a little to see the best angle for erasing any harsh shadows.
