Handbags as Images

I am working on setting up an Etsy shop and to begin with am researching (aka exploring) all sorts of stuff that goes into that.

One of the skills I need to work on is photography. Particularly I am trying to figure out how to compose good pictures of items I will have for sale in my shop. Lighting seems to be key as well as attractive, simple backgrounds. I spent some time recently looking at Etsy shops that have handbags for sale (one of the main things I expect to sell in my shop) and assembled a treasury of Quilted Handbags that I thought were well photographed. 

Which images do you think work best? Why? Please share your thoughts in the comments.


  1. All the bags you show are beautiful, but they do not show the size of the bag in scale. Hard to know if the bag would be great as a small purse for going out with friends, or big enough to carry all my kids stuff on the weekend.

    1. That's a great point! Thanks for the feedback.
