Default Example of the wrong way to photograph your items

I ran across this gem on Etsy. Why would anyone find it acceptable to photograph a product for sale on top of a dirty laundry basket? I'm no professional photographer, but holy smokes, this is ridiculous! Wait, maybe they are on to something, because the item did sell. LOL!

Amazingly, they sold! I think they were cute, but the first photo was gross and the others were hard to make out what was what. If you absolutely have to use the hamper, drape it with a sheet or table cloth first. I usually just use a kitchen chair with craft foam in the background. Tape the top, tape the bottom, and you get the perpetual background with no edges. (If that makes since, it ends up looking like a pro set up)

Yuck! That looked awful - I would never have bought something that was photographed like that.
