Trying to get the shot

I (Christa) have been trying to get photos of each thing I make for Art on the Avenue right after I make them. For one I want to post each thing on our Facebook page to draw interest. Secondly I don't want to have a huge stack of products to get pictures of at one time. I really prefer to have kids sporting the hats or headbands versus my using some kind of prop. For Etsy, I don't worry about it as much and like a mix, but for my one photo on Facebook I want people to see it in action. Action is the key word. Have you ever tried to get a good shot of something a kid is wearing?! Haha! It's a good time. I thought I'd just share a few of my bad attempts :) I've also encountered the misleading of the screen. When reviewing photos on the little screen they look great, but when downloaded...well, they aren't exactly what you thought they were. Luckily, the good come with the...not so good. :)

 
This one is soooo cute, but the headband is out of focus. 
Also super adorable, but you can barely see the headband. 
The crest/spikes are pretty much out of the picture. 
Satisfied. It's not perfect, but it's cute and you can see the product. I know everyone had different ideas of what the perfect shot will be for their product, but I like this. Kids outside (or inside), having fun, wearing things we've made.
