Sunday Night Soap Porn

Mmm. Look at this soap. It reminds me of simpler days when chaos wasn't part of my life. :)

Est Australia.

The Organic Scrub (Luscious. I love a scrubby soap - the scrubbier, the better!)

I think half the lure for me is the the lighting and photography. I truly believe that photography makes a HUGE impact on your products and if you are not using natural light, get lights that mimic natural light, or use extra time in the morning before work and set up your soaps at the window sill. Close ups of your soap, with detail is super important. If the buyer doesn't F-E-E-L the product or want to dive into it, will they really want it?

Perhaps it is that I am a visual person, but if I don't see close-ups with natural light, I move right along. A good example.......

A bar of natural soap

This soap is nothing special, right? It looks like a typical glycerin soap... but I want it, I want to go to that room and take a hot shower and rub it all over my body. Why? Because I am IN that room with it. The picture has transformed my mood.

Is it just me or do you feel it too?

You are spot on Joanna, a good picture will make you really feel that soap.It will close the gap between you and whatever is in the photo and make you one with it.
