Which picture is an attention grabber?

As every other person that takes their own pictures of the goods they sell - me too, I agonize over how my photos work....


Tell me know, work with me here (or you are here only to drop your entrecard?)....which one of these pix would grab you attention? Which one would make you want the item? If there is none, dont be shy - say so! Constructive criticism can only make one be better!


I am asking this, because - unlike soap - I dont have to make the product ahead of time to sell it. And honestly, I would rather make it fresh and when ordered. So, that means that I need a good stock photo.

I would say B grabs my attention the most, because it shows you what's inside of the tub. C is good too, with the fruits, except the lotion isn't really the focal point of the picture.

raspberries, of course!

I really like B...It has the name of product on the jar and it looks good/unique..The one with the fruit made me think it was a food product and the one with the candle looked like all the other pictures of bath products.

I agree with MoodyMommy for the same reasons. :-)

I like B because of the whipped cream look that says yummy but without the fruits that says it is edible.

B--It looks inviting, like you want to stick your finger into frosting. The food distracts your eye in C, A is boring, and D is okay, but doesn't make me want to buy it.

I like B.

C makes me look at the fruit first and not the product itself.

i happened on your site while doing the entrecard dance. i liked the very first one but i thought that the colors of the jars (the real colors) were not doing justice to your product line- i did some basic color correction and added some "shine". ((one of the hardest things in the world is product shots- even professional photographers have to have some photoshop wizard color correct.))

I would have to say B. The whipped cream just makes you want to jump right into it.

Definitely A for me. It looks like something lavish for the skin. All of them are great photos but this one looks yummy!

I like the second best, then the last one.
