We are delighted to announce our Craft Tutorials Exchange Offer giveaway in conjunction with Totally Tutorials. In return for writing and publishing your own Craft Tutorial on the subject of your choice whilst utilising one of our Modahaus Steady Stands we will be giving away up to six of our unique photo accessories to six lucky winners!
Modahaus Steady Stands are a fantastic aid to all sorts of Crafters who use a Compact Camera or Smartphone to photograph their creations and are particularly suited to tutorial photography as using a Steady Stand, you have the ideal overhead viewpoint of your subject. Many have said “It’s like having a second pair of hands!” If you only photograph using a DSLR camera, then we may include one of our Modahaus Tabletop Studios as an alternative to a Steady Stand.
Kym at Totally Tutorials devised this great Exchange Program and has helpfully supplied some guidelines on how to enter and how winners will be selected.
Here are some Q & A’s that should help.
Q – What’s on offer?
A – We will be giving away up to six Modahaus Steady Stands (or Tabletop Studios) from our range to suit each winners chosen tutorial subject and type of camera they use. There will be up to six winners.
Q – If I’m a winner, what’s expected of me?
A – On receipt of your Modahaus kit, you’ll write and publish your tutorial post on your own blog or be able to post on Crafster, Instructables or CutoutandKeep within 3-4 weeks and let Kym and I know when published. Kym has some more details HERE. In addition to your chosen subject your post will show images of your Modahaus kit in use. Don’t worry if photography is not one of your strengths. As long as you have a suitable camera, and regularly take pictures of your creations you’ll find Modahaus kit is simple, intuitive and fun to use and your photos will improve immensely using your kit. I’ll always be here to give some pointers if needed.
Q – Which craft items are suitable for the tutorials?
A – Your chosen Tutorial subject could be anything. i.e. beading, jewelry, cupcakery, nail art, you name it! We’d love to hear your suggestions. The Steady Stands range in size from the SS100’s which are ideal for jewelry and smaller items using close up and macro photography. The SS200 will accommodate items that’ll fit in a copy area of half an A4/US Letter page size and the SS300 will accommodate items up to full A4/US Letter page size. All Steady Stands are suitable for macro photography utilising an elevated copy board. Our GUIDES page gives more details and you can also check out our post ‘Photography Tips for Crafters and Jewelry Artisans’. Our largest Tabletop Studio the TS600 is 600mm/23.6” wide so can accommodate larger items.
Q – How can I apply to participate?
A- You can apply by leaving a message in the comments section below or posting to our Facebook page leaving details on what your chosen tutorial subject would be. Make sure you leave us a means of contacting you and ideally a pointer to your blog or shop. Applications will close on Sunday 25th March 2012, (which is not far away) and we’ll contact the winners shortly after that date and deliver your Modahaus kit a few days later. This offer is open to all countries, worldwide.
Good luck and hope you all enjoy the tutorials, Lex

A huge, big, thank you to all of you who participated in the giveaway. Your comments and links to your fantastic blogs and creations have inspired us and as a result, we discovered that our Modahaus Steady Stands are also a really neat aid to shooting not just overhead stills for tutorials, but they are also really useful for overhead video tutorial shots. Here’s a short demo video showing just what we mean.
We’re just sorry that you can’t all be winners but here are the six winners of a Modahaus Steady Stand we randomly selected.
Jdellino, Dora Moreland, Kitty Kanzashi, Stealthandaces, Artplaytoday, Jessica Blankenship. Please contact me by email and we’ll arrange delivery of your Modahaus kits.
For those of you who didn’t win, we hope to engage with you again in the future and we’re always here to provide advice or pointers on product photography. We’d be delighted to welcome you as Modahaus customers and I’m sure many of you would find a Modahaus kit a rewarding investment for your product photography. For the bloggers amongst you, we have recently introduced an affiliate program and are particularly interested in members of the jewelry and craft artisans community joining our select team of Modahaus ambassadors. There’s a link at the foot of the page and signing up is a simple process. I hope you’re all looking forward to the winners’ tutorials using Modahaus Steady Stands when they’re published in a few weeks time! We certainly are! Don’t forget we have a great ‘Custom Bundles’ offer on right now and our shipping is Free Worldwide! Thanks again for your enthusiasm and participation.
Keep in touch, Lex
