First Vintage Clothing Photo Shoot – Opinions???

May 27, 2009 separator etsy

I’ve been accumulating vintage clothing that I just loved, but I haven’t been listing any of it because I just haven’t been sure how to make it look appealing in an Etsy listing. I don’t feel like paying for a dress form, and I don’t like the way some pieces look on a hanger. Well, I finally broke down and took some pictures on Memorial Day. Technically, my boyfriend took the pictures, but I’m fairly happy with the result. It was a little bit awkward, but we made it through maybe six outfits.

My main issue now is choosing which photos to list. I’m still going to put up some of the pictures with the clothing on hangers just so that customers can see the item as a whole. I’m not sure exactly how to handle pricing for clothing either, but I think I’ll just kind of ‘shop around’ Etsy vintage to get an idea before listing. I need to get in gear and list some things since I haven’t in awhile. Anyhow, I’d love all your feedback on my first set of vintage clothing photos on a real person.

Check them out on our Flickr page, and please let me know what you think. Would these pictures make you look twice? More importantly, would they make you want to buy the outfit? What could we improve? I’m looking for any and all feedback. Thanks in advance!

  1. Hey CraftyAddictions!! Bought a few items from your site and they were delightfully exquisite! The customized teacher pendants were well received. The kids got out of school early here and the profs all got their gifts today… Needless to say our gifts were the favs… Thanks to you!
    Happy Holidays to all!

  2. Hi- thanks for stopping by my blog today:)
    I think your pics look very nice and very professional-andrea

  3. Wow, are you a model ? You’re gorgeous ! I think all of the clothing photos are nice and really like the purple dress, also think the yellow top is cute, casual and very chic. The Hippie dress is adorable too. I think they would sell, easily.

  4. I really like the 2nd photo of the purple dress, and the 2nd photo of the Mod geo. I would def look twice after seeing those.
