*cheesy grin* I have to say that I am totally loving the names for my new soaps. I finally had a wakeful, energetic day and got all of the last minute touches done, so now the two soaps have gone live on my site. *happy dance* Before I upload the pictures I wanted to say that these are the first product pics taken with my new DIY photo tent box and I am tickled! I still have some more tweaking and definitely a lot of learning to do, but will slowly try to retake pictures of my products. I played with background patterns, colors, and even scene fillers. I kept these backgrounds pretty basic to help make the soaps look even more dramatic. For Love Bites I actually used the back of some Valentine decoration’s packaging. *laugh* I thought that was rather brilliant myself. I had a lot of fun trying different backgrounds for Black Magic and ended up using present tissue paper over a piece of construction paper. I took a plain picture too just to make sure that the new box was actually making a big difference and boy howdy does it! I did very little editing with these and they were taken with my iPhone! Yep, I’m a little proud. lol Without further ado….
A little Black Magic:
Followed up with some Love Bites:
Both soaps are now up and featured on my site too (way bigger pictures than the others *grin*) on my soaps page (just click the red “soaps” there and it’ll take you, or your friend *elbow nudge*, right to them). It’s amazing how many little details like hyperlinking I can remember when my mind isn’t being pulled a million directions. *laugh* Anyway, I totally love these soaps. I wish they turned out a bit darker since they looked like the perfect soft black when I poured the soaps, but being a little paler helps that glitter really catch the eye. I’m becoming such a glitter fanatic that I might need an intervention. Never would I have expected that of myself.
I had hoped to work on Malice & Mayhem tonight after making a bunch of lotions, but there’s a storm a’brewin’ according to the pain building in my ankle, so I’m going to chill out on the recliner with the fur babies instead. If you feel like letting me know what you think of the new soaps and brighter/clearer pictures I’d love to hear from you. Also, feel free to pin it to Pinterest if you really like them or send a friend the link. *grin* That’s enough shameless attention seeking for tonight, so until next we meet, pamper on. 🙂
