Hanging product on the back fence? Using your bathroom lights for your light source? Photographing shiny stuff? Get some tips by looking at photography books, steal ideas from those glossy catalogs, or ask somebody who knows. Try something, see what works and what doesn’t, then try again.

We were both lucky enough to attend the nearly-free Denver Handmade Alliance workshop “Photography is Your Friend!” this week. Photographer Erin Algiere, , graciously donated her time to a room filled with talented local crafters. And all of us wants/needs a little help with product photography! Fortunately for us Denverites Erin is funny, enthusiastic, and willing to share what she’s learned.

DHA will be hosting more of these workshops in the future, and they’re looking for folks who are willing to share their knowledge with others. If you have a helpful skill to offer your fellow crafters, consider doing a workshop for your local crafting group. If you’re in the Denver Metro Area, contact the Denver Handmade Alliance at
