Photography with a knitting twist…

Ent 18

Today we had a photography workshop.  First there was a series of photos of my Entrelac project.  Still sitting on my needles in an array of delicious colours, including the multi-coloured “dark caramel” treat in Kampes garn (yarn.)

Helped by our teacher, Linnea, we set up large bright (and hot!) lamps (with and without umbrella) and smaller spot lights without the main lights to get different lighting effects.

Large lights with white backdrop.

The editing process started at school with Photoshop but I couldn’t get the free trial version to download at home.  I thought it was worth sharing the images from today as they stand.  It is amazing what a white backdrop and good lighting can do for an indoor shoot!  All these images come from my LG mobile phone camera.

Venturing outside in the scenic, historic streets that surround our school in Djurgården, there were a few lucky rays of sunshine to brighten up the yarn with added reflections from touches of snow.

I just caught the last of the sunlight as I walked towards home.  Using a panaromic shot and 2 Instagram pictures my phone, I captured the last moments before the sun finally set on Stockholm for today…
