* We also suggest that you dress your balconies/ products appropriately or remove unsightly items from the scene where possible. Add people or animals or props….be creative!

* The best photos are taken on a sunny day so try to show your products off with blue skies and sun!

* Panoramic photos are great if taken with a good camera or iPhone and a steady hand.
