I am determined to find a new way to photograph my products, especially my bags. I usually have one of my daughters model for me, but it is getting more and more difficult to work out a good time to take photos when they are available and there is good natural light. Winter weather and shorter days, along with their school schedules and part-time jobs, make for a tight window of opportunity for taking photos.

With this goal in mind, I have been looking around at various types of photographs, hoping for an epiphany. My current favorite background style involves the use of old weathered doors. I have always loved old doors. They seem to hold a secret, especially if they are time-worn and weathered. I think about what and who has passed through them over the years. For me, doors are symbolic of the future and opportunities and even adventure! Who knows what might be waiting on the other side?
