Having looked at your website don't think you need to change they all seem clear, well detailed, and functional Drew

I concur with Rod as far as the clarity of the images is concerned and that they're 'functional'. Changing your camera won't improve what you're having trouble with, which is composition, staging and lighting. If your primary concern is about making the furniture look as good as it can and more attractive to buyers, study these areas.

You're in a great building and if you can free up even a fairly small space inside you can do a lot to improve the presentation (and use less photographs of each piece to do it).

Hi Rod & thanks for taking the time to look at my website/pics.
I tend to rely on sunlight which is OK most of the year but this time of year the sunlight can be harsh or none at all and it would be good to get better results inside. Thanks again. Drew

Hi Robert.
Thank you also for your advice. Is there a good book to read up on 'composition, staging and lighting' .Drew

Just to add, I have tried taking pictures inside in an area set up for this but the the quality is pretty poor compared to those close to the door or outside. Drew
