On Getting a Well Lit Photo

When you put all that effort into making a garment or craft, you deserve the best photos to show it off.  When I first started blogging, I didn't realize the importance of a well lit photo, but I am trying to improve.  I wanted to share a simple way to create a back drop for an outdoor photo.
Step one:  the clothesline:  if you have a fence or balcony, suspend any type of string between the boards to create a small clothesline.
Step two:  drape some fabric or a sheet over the fence/balcony to create a neutral backdrop.   
 Step three:  take your photo.
Anytime of year, outdoor photos provide the best light for my taste.  This way, you can change the backdrop to coordinate with your crafts.

Thanks for the tips I agree tis always better to try taking pictures outside, the natural sun works way better then trying to take them indoors (I guess if I had fancy photo equipment it might be easier

very clever! I also try to take my photos outside whenever possible but had not thought to drape a backdrop
