-Put your piece on a model or a mannequin to show how it looks on a person.

-Make sure it is well lit. If in doubt, photograph it in natural light or outside.

-Make sure we can see the piece, no weird poses that obscure the work. The work comes first!

-Make sure to take a photo of the front, the back, sides if needed, and any close up of details that you would like us to see. (5 photos max per entry)

-If you are photographing a full outfit, think about hair and make-up. It doesn’t need to be elaborate but it can really elevate a look. (This is not a requirement)
