Default Photographing headbands...

How do YOU take pictures of your headbands if you don't have a model? I am hoping someone has a trick to make them look beautiful, even if they are without form!

TIA!

It's hard, and I hate to not have a model because it is work on the head so differently. My theme in my shop is a frame.

I completely agree, it's so hard without a model. Especially on some of the more unique headbands, that are kind of hard to picture if they aren't on some adorable little girl.

I just started retaking all of my photos & I've been using a picture frame as well. But I've tried to get pictures a few different ways for each item, so hopefully they have a really good idea of what it looks like from all angles. For hard headbnds, I'm trying not to use anything, so it looks like they're standing up magically. Otherwise I use a vase.

A girl I know used to use a small little fishbowl full of pearl like beads and lace.

I just use a white background and do close-ups. You can touch them up for free on picnik.

My photographer uses clamps, I think... I don't have my memory stick with me right now to upload pics but you can check out my website at www.olivejuicestore.com . Click on the Headbands tab and you'll see some of the headbands. She gets them to stand upright somehow. I can ask if you're interested.
