You can create this bond in a variety of ways, from showing tiny bits of an item as it's being made to asking for help with the process, color selections or naming of the finished item. Every little connection you build through your imagery strengthens the bond people have to your products & it makes them irresistible. People love to feel like they are a part of what they buy & fill their home with, so today I have collected a four images from makers that do a wonderful job of creating visually pleasing & engaging WIP photos.
Lady Lack's Designs captures images of her work in all stages of progress, which creates interest and builds a bond between the products and her followers. She openly invites feedback and color suggestions with her WIP images, catering her paper quill art to her fans tastes.
Keep in mind that even for WIP photos, you should always keep the background clutter free and have even lighting, and they should be presented in a visually pleasing way that says to your audience that each product is created in a beautiful, thoughtful way, with attention to detail.
Know a maker whose WIP photos you admire or think are drool worthy? Feel free to share their social media account in the comments!
