Blurry, but mine~

As you can see, I haven't quite got the hang of photographing my knitting yet. Any suggestions? The pics above of my purple Ostrich Plume scarf/shawl in progress seem like a bad black and white to me -- of course, it is 2:30 in the morning -- natural light might change everything! Time for bed.

I usually always wait for a sunny day to take pics and more often than not, drag my project outside to capture the colour. Even when I use the flash on my camera, the picture will look dull and unclear.

If you will be photographing a lot of knitting.....especially detail shots, it would be worth investing in a tri-pod. I am wishing for one myself. The other factor is lighting.

Natural light always seems best. If you must use a flash, experiment with different backgrounds. Backgrounds can have a profound effect on how bright or dark your picture turns out. I usually take shots with and without the flash and with varying backgrounds and light sources then choose the best of the bunch. Of course with a digital camera I don't worry about processing fees!
