Bangle Photo Styling

Up until now the bangle photos in my Etsy shop only show the one item being sold. Others sellers often show other styles or a group of items in at least one photo of the five allowed for each item for sale. I got to thinking about how it might be nice to show my bangles mixed up with some others.

Also, I've been using a new camera. My (very) old one is a 5 megapixel Nikon Coolpix5000. I think I do pretty well with it in spite of its age, but this new 14.1 megapixel Panasonic Lumix is a dream to use. Its capture rate is much faster and the digital display in the back is larger so I can compose shots faster and spend less time on photography.

So here are some of the results. Tell me whether you think the styling looks better with the bangles stacked or fanned out on the surface. I can't decide which looks better. 

Here they are all stacked up like layers of ingredients on a mouthwatering burger.

This is short stack with a little tilt.

Overlapped somewhat neatly, like cards laid down for a winning poker hand.

A little group in natural disorder, like you just took them off and laid them down.

Another sandwich-style stack a little messier than the first photo above.

What do you think? Do you have a favorite? Do they all work? I cannot afford live models nor the time it would take to photo style them, so hopefully these new product shots will convey some options for buyers.

Hi Sharon,

I think for greater impact the stack ones look better :)

That alos gives people an idea of how they will look when they are wearing them :)

Have a great Monday, cheers, T. :)

Great photos! I like the 3rd and 5th ones the best. #5 gives an idea of what they look like when work, and #3 shows more detail of each, plus it's a visually appealing design. The association with a winning poker hand is not bad, either ;)

Nice! I like the bracelets fanned out on a surface best. You get to see more of them that way. I also like the plain white background without any texture.
