Knoxville Creative Hands Street Team held a photography workshop and shop check-up on Saturday and if you missed it we hope to hold another one in a couple of months. We broke the two hour workshop up into two segments and the weather cooperated so we could shoot outside in natural light. Each participant was asked to bring the camera they typically use to photograph the items they list in their Etsy shop and one or two of their items for the hands-on portion of the photography segment. Lisa Mueller, Team captain and photographer at ALM Photo led the photography workshop and members were also assisted by her husband, Allan. Allan was a great asset to anyone needing technical assistance with their camera settings.

After Lisa guided members through some basics and they went outside to shoot, Lahla led the Shop Check-Ups. Each member was given the opportunity to have their peers give suggested tag words and descriptions for their item they brought. This is a great way to increase the search optimization of their items on Etsy. Everyone left with new ideas for photographing their items and how to describe them as well as tips on how to improve the appearance of their shop.
