Endless Photos

Yes, the Weber grill makes a great platform for our photo shoot!
I made an executive decision to make five “dummy” balms of each flavor for the photo shoot. I like the idea of having these ready at all times, no worries about product inside, no worries about what is in or out of stock, no getting our real inventory messy during photos. The grill provides the PERFECT location for our photo shoot and the 12″x12″ colored paper works awesome! I took four poses of each scent, so 4×42=168 just for the basic shots of the lip balm. I crop, size, adjust and edit each photo in PicMonkey for beautiful image perfection! Getting the photos ready to upload on Etsy and the website will give me a strong foundation for moving forward.
