Step 1: Lighting
If your item is portable, place it in natural daylight; take it outside or place it on a windowsill. The daylight will make your item look its best. If your item is too big to move, opening the room’s curtains and switching on the light will create the best lighting for it. If natural light isn’t available, make sure you’re well-lit room, or check your phone or camera’s lighting settings. If possible, avoid using the flash as that can be rather harsh, and your photo won’t look as good.
Step 2: Close-ups
Take photos from multiple angles. It let’s interested buyers see the whole item and decide if they want to buy it. For example, if you’re selling a car, take photos from of the whole car from a distance, get close to car shoot the lights and the interior. And, if your car has some unique features make sure to capture that and other important details. Tonaton.com gives you the chance to post as many as 5 pictures on one item
