Elizabeth Carls of Works with Fiber has some great photography tips for crafters.
I love her Tip #6 and it’s something I do all the time:
Take lots and lots of photos. Once you have something set up take several shots. Move in a little closer and shoot some more. Move out a little further and shoot some more. Shoot from a higher angle, shoot from a lower angle, shoot it in reverse. Now re-arrange your props, change out your background, and shoot it all again. Now, move to a different part of the yard or the other side of the room where the light will be slightly different and do it all again. Taking tons of photos will give you choices, and a least a few really excellent photographs.
