The card reader did the trick – we have photographs again. Yay!
At the Photography for Knitters workshop Gale talked a lot about ways to pose our handknits. She talked about the challenges we face when we try to get 3 dimensional things like bags and sweaters and socks translate to 1 dimensional blogs. And she gave some suggestions on better ways to photograph these things, ways to make them come alive, if you will.
So the other day I headed into my back yard with my most recent pair of socks, looking for some different ways to show them to you.
I started with the black eyed susans. The colors blend nicely but the socks are really too heavy to photograph there without causing the plant to flop over.
Then I remembered what Gale said about wood and yarn. She described it as having a relationship similar to velcro. The yarn is the loopy part and the wood is the prickly part and they will stick together.
So I stuck my socks on a tree.
I was able to photograph the heel.
And the toe.
And even the pretty picot edge. The yarn, in case you’re wondering is Cider Moon in the color June Carter. The pattern is my usual, of course, but at least the pictures are a bit different this time.
You’ve got to mix things up where you can, you know.
