Welcome to day 2 of Knitting and Crochet Blog Week! Today’s topic is creative photography!
I’ll fess up: I’m still working on being creative with my photos. I can’t wait to have a peek at everyone else’s posts!
My Current Level:
I adore my baby tripod, since it allows me to take photos of me wearing my knitwear:
They’re not the most creative shots, but they’re better (and at least a little more professional-looking) than the I’m-holding-my-camera-and-caught-only-half-of-my-body shot!
I’ve been practicing my ‘white background’ photos quite a bit (read my 5 easy photography tips), and I’m stretching my creative legs a bit:
Sometimes, I throw in a hand as a prop:
… but that’s about as creative as I get with the props!
I’m working on getting more creative with my props and staging of photos… fortunately, there’s some amazing folks out there to get inspiration from! Eskimimi posted some fabulous examples in her topics post.
And, you can always count on Anna from MochiMochiLand to post amazing photos! She comes up with the most clever scenes (both for photos and stop-motion animation)… check out her post on The Infestation (of gnomes)!
Anna also runs contests that encourage her customers to take awesome photos… check out these weaving bunnies!
So, I know I have a little way to go, but I’m improving every year! Can’t wait to see all of your creative photo posts, today!
