Seeing Red

I've been painting some artificial lemons red.

There was an article on Etsy with tips
on photographing items that you plan to sell in your shop.

One suggestion was to place something familiar
that everyone knows the size of in your photos to help
customers visualize how large or small your product is.

Aren't they cute?

Let's test out this suggestion, shall we?
Here are two different sized plates.

One is 8 1/2 inches and the other is 11 inches.
Can you tell which is which?

Now can you tell?  Same lemon.  It helps, doesn't it.  Even if there was no second plate, the lemon would help illustrate the relative size of the plate.  It's so important with online shopping to help your customer visualize the item you're selling in any way possible.  In this case, a fork on the plate would also have been helpful.  Everyone knows how big a fork is, right?

I like my red lemons.  I was just going to use yellow lemons, but a wise person suggested painting them red.  I didn't think a fake lemon would hold paint so well, but they turned out just fine.  Excellent suggestion.  I mean, come on... RubyLemons... they gotta be red.

Lemon tree very pretty, and the lemon flower is sweet-
But the fruit of the poor lemon is impossible to eat.
