I have to agree with the practice makes perfect comment, when I first started my business I took my pictures with a regular point and shoot. I upgraded to a Cannon Rebel and I love it, it's now my go to camera for everything. I am kind of embarrassed at my old pictures but I look back at them now and I can see how far I've come, it's trial and error, lots of it. I also take some of my modeled product shots myself, and photography has become a serious hobby for me, so serious that I have booked a couple of paid sessions, Save the Date, Family, and my very first wedding in March!
it's generating extra income for my family, and that's always welcomed. You never know, after investing so much time and effort into improving your pictures you may catch the bug and take photography seriously, besides improving your sales. Which it did for me, exponentially.
