This is the pressure I've been putting on myself. people are buying my soap. I'm sending it out, people are asking to order - but I havent published a website or a facebook page because I dont think the pictures do justice to the soaps.I'm not good either and I had to just get pics up on the web fast. Some of mine are lighted better then others.
I find the hardest part is getting all the design in when you have it.
I also like to make sure that my Label in in the pic so that someone can't edit it out.
I also Hate pics that are So close it's like in your face lol
Here is a bad one for me, well they all are like this. The background is on purpose as I wanted Rustic but didn't want to take away from the soap.

Yes I definitely need to invest in a planer, I have a habit of cutting too early. With my work schedule I often seem to have to choose between cutting it a bit early, and leaving it another 12 hours so its rock hard when I get back.What really annoys me about soap photos is that you set it all up, pick your best soaps, wipe them down, set them up and take the photo. I'm only using my iphone so you wouldn't think this would happen but...every single soap has HUGE flaws in it. It looks like amateur hour at the soap farm. Honestly. Spots, marks, scratches, blotches, bits of soap hanging off...
I think I will go in for soft focus in future.
