Now for Some Macro

I thought I would share a few of my favorite closeups from the weekend. I do so love using the macro setting on my camera. It's so important to capture the details and I think a good macro shot is crucial for a good listing on-line. Macro helps the customer to reach out and touch your item in a way. Since they can't really touch it when shopping on-line, as I discussed in this post previously, than we need to help them get an idea of what it would feel like in their hands.

I really love the above scarf. It's made with Noro, my favorite yarn brand. I used what I call my "mistake" stitch. I saw something like it in a magazine on a sweater and I figured out how to get the look through dropped stitches. It gives a ripped or grungey effect that I like. The close up on the black and white scarf shows the drapiness and fullness of the scarf is I think.



This pink and white scarf was a bit of a departure for me. It was done in a simple lace pattern with the white and pink yarns that resemble lace themselves. There is a great shimmer to the yarn that I hope I captured in the shot.

I've started bringing some expired listings back from the dead and listed the cream scarf from yesterday. I'll list some more new items tonight. It was fun to actually list something new for the first time in at least 4 months. I actually got over 30 views on it last night and 1 heart which was a pleasant surprise.

I love the bright colors. They really do shout from the page in the macro...along with your stitch detail.

The cream scarf is awesome! Too bad I live in the sub tropics and have no need for a scarf!

Thank you for your kind comments on the IndieCEO blog. Appreciate your visit!

I like the colors, but wonder why you want your scarf bunched up, looking like a mistake? I don't get that.

great photos! I always use the macro on my jewelry, too. I've started using it on other shots too!

Love them. It took me a minute on the first set with the "dropped stitch" because I thought, OMG the scarves got snagged!!! I would be OCD about those I'm afraid. Sigh, guess that just proves I'm totally anal.

Thank you for hosting my Entrecard ad!
