Thats pretty gross! Something else I find very distracting is when the bow or outfit (what ever it is that I'm looking at), is actually on a child. I find myself reflecting on the cuteness of the child, rather than the item for sale.

I used my purple quilt square cutting mat, just because it has the squares and measurements all over it, it gives the buyer an idea of the size of the images on the ribbon, however I admittedly always have towers and rows of ribbon all over the place in the background, I don't know if that's good or bad, but regularly I have people asking if I have any other stock I might not have listed lol But other then a nice decorative picture, I think the cutting mat is a good idea to have as one of the pictures, I know when buying things I'm too lazy to get a ruler out to see how big or small something will be, when it's on the mat and you can see the inch squares, makes it a bit easier to figure out. Toenails and tobacco is pretty gross. You'd think they could find a piece of clean linen or a piece of scrap fabric to take a photograph on if they don't have any decent surfaces around the house :S I have 1 dedicated room in my home for stock and hobbies, I know not everyone can have space like that, but they should have a dedicated, relatively clean spot that wouldn't get bothered by family or pets, fingernails or smoking.

I'm the same way! When I take their pictures, I do a sweep of all the toys and burp cloths and remotes, etc so behind them is just clean carpet and furniture, so its kinda deceiving because it makes it seem like I have a clean house when in reality it always looks like a daycare threw up in here.

Ewww, that's pretty gross. I know that's part of the reason why the controversy of whether or not to use models in photos comes up pretty often. Some people are really germophobic and can't stand the idea that the product was already worn by someone else. I'm one of those people who likes for jewelry to be modeled though, so I can try to imagine how it'll look on me. I guess a compromise would be using some type of jewelry display instead.

LOL, that's why I always take pics of my DD and my products outside. I am a single mom full time student I don't have time to make a spotless house.

Personally, I think there's nothing more cute than a little doll with my creation on. I've been thinking of working out a deal with a local photographer.
Not only will it benefit her when I post her pictures on my business page but it will benefit my work because of the quality of her photographs.
For the time being, this is what I do:

I use foam board from dollar tree and cover in black and white polka dot wrapping paper. I also use black and white damask wrapping paper.
I pin my bows from the back to the board with T-pins before I put an alligator clip on. This makes the bow lay smoother for pictures.

I then prop the foam board up against the wall on my antique flat black
wash stand in my bathroom, turn out all the lights and use only my camera flash. I use doilies, a black/white vintage purse,
and vintage ladies gloves and vintage powder cans for props.

For my headbands I use a three tear iron candle holder that I spray painted black. I covered three small styrofoam balls with brown trouser socks and use these as head displays for the bows
I even gave one head a pony tail. I created the pony tail by
pulling the trouser sock 1/2 way onto the sytrofoam ball, gathered it with an elastic band and cut strands until it looked like hair
