Taking photos of goodies to sell on eBay is surprisingly hard, even for a trained photographer. It's almost impossible to get those blown-out white backgrounds, especially without annoying colour casts, when you don't have thousands of dollars of expensive studio equipment.
What's more, it's boring ... eBay shoppers don't trust creative product photography, as I discovered when I surrounded some equestrian gear with tiny model horses and fences!
The problem, however, is that I'm buying another horse and selling vintage wares and collectibles online is how I fund my four-legged habit. I spent most of Sunday taking photos and got completely side-tracked with this '70s pair of Oroton glasses.
Okay, so I haven't listed them yet ... but the TtV version is completely cool!
Then I noticed how the image reflected in the top lens of my sweet little Argus Seventy Five. How cute is this ... like peeping through a photographic port hole!
