2. Remember the K.I.S.S. (Keep It Simple Stupid) rule! If possible photograph against a plain wall. That will eliminate a lot of potential problems and put the focus on your item.
3. Look before you post! Look CAREFULLY at your photo. You want to be able to see the subject well, but also look at the edges around the subject for distractions or embarrassing items.
