| | Re: photographing pony streamers
I have my daughter sit on the floor and put her hands out back behind her and then lean back a bit and look over her shoulder away from the camera. I shoot from slightly above and behind her. I'm on my phone right now so I can't post a pic. But if that doesn't explain it well enough I'll edit later from my computer and add one.
For product pics I lay one out and fold over some of the ribbons to show some "movement".
