have fun taking photos at craft markets and flea markets. At this point in time, so far, we have not yet started to do all that well with sales at craft markets and flea markets, at least not at every single craft market or flea market we go to, but at least we enjoy having fun taking photos at craft markets and flea markets.
At some markets in and around East London we’ve barely covered our market costs (for the petrol for the car for the trip, and for the cost of the stall space) but at least at those times we can still say to ourselves: “Oh well, at least we can enjoy ourselves by taking photos and we can also write about the day.” Adding content and photos to our sites helps bring traffic to our sites, and we make money from our sites in a number of ways.
What types of photos do we enjoy taking at craft markets and flea markets?
Well, sometimes “taking photos at craft markets” begins even before we get to the market venue, especially if the route takes us through the countryside.
Sometimes we’ll also take photos while we’re still setting up too, but we mostly take photos of:
other market stalls and other products,
the visitors to the market and the other market sellers,
and the market venue and surroundings.
When we take photos of other stalls, we like to stand back and get the entire stall in the shot, as well as like to get in close with shots of the actual products. We feel getting in close with some craft market and flea market products brings the products to life, shows more detail, and makes them more appealing. A craft market or flea market can be a wild display of all sorts of colours, but getting in close with a camera helps separate lovely products from each other, making them stand out more.
