Like taking pictures of anything, it’s all in the lighting. A more diffuse light source (vs. say a bare bulb) is going to be more flattering, as in minor defects don’t show as much. Lighting from an angle gives a better perspective than lighting straight on. The color temperature of the light makes a difference also. Warmer for reds, browns, light grays and cooler (higher color temp) for blues, blacks, and high contrast colors. The beauty of digital cameras is you can see your results instantly and make corrections as you go. Software like PhotoShop goes along way to tweaking the final result. Back in the film days, it was days for turn around time. Interesting knickknacks and props add to the visual appeal.
