Tooting My Own Horn!
As mentioned in a blog post a few months back, I was given a tremendous opportunity via a dear friend. It turns out that I had taken photographs of her artwork (TinkerDot Designs) for her store on etsy. (If you haven’t visited etsy you are missing out on a whole world of amazing handmade items.) To make a long story short, the author of ‘Starting an Etsy Business For Dummies’ noticed a photo that would exemplify how to photograph merchandise with props to help a buyer better visualize the size and use of a product. The author asked if she could use the photo but I hesitated because I knew I could shoot it better for the purpose of the chapter/book. The only glitch was that the photo needed to be sent to the author in 24 hours or less and so I scrambled to get “the shot”. The photograph was everything I hoped it would be and it is now featured on page 137 of the book. I have to say that I’m pretty darn proud! The best part – the darling little girl is my very own beautiful daughter. (She thinks that she is pretty darn cool too!)
