Whurl Photo Tips

Photo tip day! I’ve been wanting to make this post for awhile and finally partnered up with my talented illustrator pal Louise Androlia  to help cute it up.

Some of these tips may seem like common sense to some and a complete surprise to others, and that’s okay! It’s important to me to remember that Whurl sellers range from first timers to decades-old vintage stores. I gathered these tips from a combination of my own experience and analysis of the sales report, meaning the majority of items that sold have these things in common. In my opinion, photo and price are the top reasons items sell. It isn’t necessarily the item since an item that appeals to me might not even appeal to you. But how do I know if something appeals to me if I can barely tell what it is from its photo? Make sense? Here are my tips:

1.Be sure to show the entire item in one photo (don’t cut off the bottom of a dress)

2. Always use natural light or profesh lighting! Dim lighting is a huge no-no

3. Solid backgrounds work best to not distract from the item!

4. Make sure your photos are always in focus.

5. Show as many angles as you can of the item (the more photos you
add, the better!)
