Product Photography



Photographing my handbags and accessories has been a big learning experience for me since I opened my online shop, Pesky Cat Designs. A good image of your product is so important. There's so much to decide on. Should I have a clean white background so the item stands out, or a prop such as a flower or vase to add interest to my subject or should I photograph my item in an interesting location? Should I use photo lights or daylight? And on and on!
It's very important to get the color of your item as accurate as possible. Color can vary from screen to screen so you must take that into consideration as well. When I first started out I used photo lights and a white backdrop. Just recently I discovered that I can photograph my items in my studio near one of the large windows that gets lots of daylight.  I've been able to capture the actual color of my handbags best using this method. I've also been taking my handbags out into the street of New York City to get interesting shots of the bags being modeled. 
My best advice to others out there is to keep experimenting and trying new things. You never know what you might discover!

New Harris Tweed Purses

Harris Tweed Color Block Purse This week in the studio I did some experimenting combining various Harris Tweed weaves to create a purse. This purse is also a new design measuring at approximately 14" wide, 8.5" high and 2.5" deep. Roomy enough to fit your daily essentials with a stream-lined design to fit comfortably under your arm. Harris Tweed Color Block Purse The purse above is made from Harris Tweed wool in two plain weaves and a barleycorn weave. I love the contrasting colors and textures. Back view of purses above. Harris Tweed Two Tone Bag And last but not least, a basket/tote design, using a lovely blue Harris Tweed plain weave and a Macleod check. All these new bags are now available at the Pesky Cat Designs shop. Wishing everyone a great weekend ahead!
