about those photos.... 5KCBWDAY3
Stylized photos? Depends on who is doing the photographing....
Eskimimi's blog or knits modelled and styled with fashionable flair as seen on TheYarnista's blog.
But here? Not so much. I had great intentions of taking beautiful photographs. A few years ago I bought my camera, lens, and flash. I practised taking still-life shots, and love my 50mm lens. Then, life (and a dropped lens) got in the way. I admit my knitting photos are not styled, staged, and shot to the best of my ability. Most of the time, the photo is the 'selfie' in the mirror trying to catch a good angle of the garment. Sometimes, it's my knitting plopped on a surface in my house (counter, bed, desk, couch) to take a photo of the yarn or work in progress.
More recently, I've discovered that the best way to get a shot of my FO without the camera in my face and the glare of a flash in the mirror is to hand the iPhone camera over to someone else. My most recent masterpiece:
Boxed Pullover, photographed by my 7 year old son. He's 7.
