If you are going to sell on eBay, amazon or from a web site, then you need good photos. A few years ago eBay did some research and found that a auctions with clear crisp photos outsold auctions with poor photos by 3 to 1 and achieved on average 20% higher final bids.
So it really does pay to take the time to take good photos. And the good news is you don’t need to spend a fortune.
Here is a photo of a really cheap photo set up that uses nothing more than a large piece of white paper (you can also use colored paper) and a couple of lights.
You can also opt for a digital photo light tent. These used to be very expensive, but lately they have been coming down in price. Here are some examples of inexpensive light tents available on Amazon or eBay.
Here is another one I like:
What I like about this one is that it comes with daylight balanced lights and several background color backdrops.
