Getting the Big Picture

Is it just me, or do other people like seeing products on a model? I would rather seeing clothes, jewelry, hair accessories, etc. that I am going to potentially buy, on actual people. Even if the dimensions are listed, it still doesn't beat having that visual image proportion-wise. You can see the big picture and imagine how it will look on you as well.

Most of my hair accessories are pictured by themselves because I don't want to wait until my sister comes into town, or have to transport them anywhere to have a "photo shoot" just to list them. I want to get them listed as soon as I can. During the week, whenever my husband comes home from work, he is usually exhausted and I know the last thing he wants to do is play "photographer".


Well today we didn't have anything planned, so I asked in my sweetest voice possible if he would mind snapping a few shots - he agreed! I pulled my hair up and grabbed a couple of my floral combs. Now my husband is wonderful when it comes to the camera, but nothing is ever right when it comes to my obsessive-compulsive need for perfect pictures. I felt so bad for him (and kept apologizing) when he ended up snapping over 50 pictures! He really did a great job and I am so thankful that he put up with me! Here are the shots that I added to two of my current listings. I didn't want to subject him to any further torture - we'll save the other floral accessories for another day!

I agree with you totally on wanting to see it on a model, but that circumstances are sometimes hard to do that.
