Backgrounds for Photos

Hhhhmmmm...Still working on those photos! Now we've come to the subject of backgrounds. White? Black? Color? It's so difficult! Many people on Etsy like the white backgrounds, and some have suggested that it may help our items "pop" more. Others say they prefer the black backgrounds, as it seems to make the crystals show better. So we're stuck - and still trying any and every option just to see what will come out clean, clear and crisp.
Another thing - photo editing. I still can't get the hang of it. Lighting is a big issue with lots of our shots (especially the ones with white backgrounds), and if I could just brighten them, it would make life easier. we'll keep trying, keep working, and keep "tweaking" those pictures! Hopefully, some of them will turn out all right.

Really like them on gray. Lets your project pop off the background.

My stuff is currently on a pink background, which does not work for baby boy items. I am going to switch over to black. I think black will make my white items pop out the most, whereas the white on white will just fade. I think black would make your items "pop" as well.
