    1. Great advice for the point and shoot camera as well as the more "complicated" DSLR to get the best photographs of your homemade creations. The author gives great definitions for light, aperture, depth of field, shutter, exposure, etc. She not only tells what each camera basic is but explains how to use them in simple, easy terms. There are great chapters on the basics of using Photoshop Elements as well. Simple, useful instructions!I appreciated the chapters on the best ways to photograph variou [...]

    2. Like many crafters, I've read enough photography tutorials to have a general idea about how to take great photos (natural lighting, know your camera, etc.). My knowledge is rarely a match for expediency when deadlines are looming, though. I thought this book would be full of lots of tips I already knew but would be a good read nonetheless. Instead, I must admit that the Crafter's Guide to Taking Great Photos far exceeded my expectations. Although it is clearly targeted at crafters who sell their [...]

    3. I was so excited when I saw this book on one of the many craft blogs that I read, but ended up feeling it was pretty basic. Maybe I've just been reading too many crafty blogs for too long, but most of the advice seemed pretty obvious (keep it simple, clean white backgrounds are always a reliably good choice, etc.) and not that different for each different product type. I enjoyed the interviews sprinkled throughout as well as the tutorials that had good before/after comparisons of using one techn [...]

    4. I was very surprised by this book. Not only does it offer wonderful inspiration for photographing crafts, it also gives one of the best short introductions to digital photography and composition than I have seen. I think it does a better job than many of the digital photography books on the market now. I'd recommend it both to crafters and to beginning photographers.

    5. A great guide to photography for beginners (like me) with helpful tips and tricks.Section by section how-to photography according to what you are trying to capture (fabrics, crafts, jewelry, art piece, pottery, etc.). Another useful info are the tutorials on how to make your own lighting equipment.Nicely designed book!

    6. I think this was very well organized. It starts out with general photography information and tips on making some of your own equipment like light boxes. Then it breaks down into chapters which focus on different types of crafts and the difficulties specific to photographing those materials. Finished up with suggestions for workflow in processing and editing your photos.

    7. The key to making your crafted items stand out online is great photographs. The author teaches how to make that happen, even with the most basic of camera. Divided into crafting categories, the author delves into the specifics of getting the best shot.

    8. Beautiful book, lots of great advice and wonderful photographs enclosed. More for the proffesional seller than the amature I think, may need good photography equipment to re-create some of the shots.

    9. Smart and practical, this book is a great step-by-step for crafters (and others) new to the arts of photography, promotion, and marketing. I appreciate the combination of practical application, best practices, and theory.

    10. Great read for a newbie photographer like myself. For the more experienced photographer this book might be too elementary.

    11. Great book! Simple breakdowns of how to photograph a wide variety of items! Very helpful even to those who need to make a professional presentation!
