pumpkin candles

Been spending most of the early fall season trying to take better product photos.

Photography has never been my strong suit but those skills are necessary for selling online.   When I opened my retail store I did't have to worry too much about photographing my products.  Now it seems like I spend more time setting up for a shoot that than I do making the candles.

Sunflower floating candles

Feeling late to party this year.  Always a few months behind getting out the right candles for the current season.

I really love how these turned out, even though they are time consuming with the two step process to get the brown seed center before the over pour of yellow.  They've been hypnotic to make once I get in to the rhythm.
