Creating Exciting Backgrounds For Photographing Your Kitchen Collectibles
I just love the way Ric Rac And Buttons , an Etsy.com shop photographs her lovely kitchen collectibles for sale. She sets up very pleasing vignettes featuring her collectibles from the 1940s and 1950s.
An Updated Look For Your Kitchen
She has updated the color palettes of her own kitchen to create a more contemporary look . Then when she photographs her kitchen housewares, they are showcased against a fresher background.
Creating Retro Style For Younger Shoppers
Appealing to younger shoppers, Ric Rac And Buttons manages to create what I would call "retro style". She pulls out elements of the Atomic Era such as using 50s colors (reds and turquoise) as well as 50s designs i.e. polka dots (fabric shown) to bring in a hint of the funky fifties. Yet her book shelf is clearly painted in a more current shade of turquoise.
Branding Your On-line Shop
We can learn a lot from this vendor. By using a familiar style she in essence is "branding" her shop. Now when buyers go on Etsy.com, they are able to recognize Ric Rac And Buttons easily with photos that have consistency. Additionally, this seller is able to take ordinary kitchen collectibles and make them look so much more exciting, by taking the time to style her photos with an eye catching background .
