Photography has never been my strong suit so I'm often stopped in my tracks whenever I'm cruising around Etsy. How did all these people who are clearly so talented at making stuff--purses, knitted shrugs, pendant necklaces, paintings, or what have you--also get blessed with crazy photography skills? And will my life suddenly look all perfectly lit, immaculately composed, and clean if I buy that purse/knitted shrug/pendant necklace/painting/what-have-you? A beautiful photo suggests to me that yes, it just might.
