Product Shots - pottery blog

As I said in my last post, I'd post details about what I've been working on and let you see the results of the product shots.

Mansour Eskandary

Mansour—Mans for short—is a well known potter, based just outside of Plymouth. He's had a blog for a while but was waiting until he could offer his work for sale there before developing it.

I've been helping him with that, working out a scheme to use the blog for that purpose, as well as the more normal uses. I've also been doing the product shots, as I spoke about in my last post.

Have a look at his blog, there's only two products for sale so far. But now that we've broken the back of the approach, it shouldn't take long to upload the product shots and do the blurb for the rest of this batch of 24.

By the way, the "scheme" I'm on about is the way we've decided to use labels very carefully so that we could use a simple list of links at the top to allow visitors to quickly see, for example, all the sold work, or all the raku, etc. We also spent a lot of time coming up with a convention to name each product.

I think we need one more column of links to cover
  • normal posts (all will be labelled "journal" or something like it)
  • terms and conditions
  • the privacy policy
Did I leave any out? Anyway, what did you think of the product shots?

comments / feedback always welcome :)
