- You do not need a fancy camera or set up, a simple camera phone, two pieces of white card and a window will do!
- Think about what attracts you to a product and how does the product photo compare to yours.
- Invest time in your photos as they are vital to your brand and building your business.
- Research and look at how others take their photos.
- Ask for feedback on how you can improve it! Sometimes it is worth asking someone who does not know you such as our community in
