3KCBWDAY2: Photography Challenge Day!
Photography Challenge Day!
“Today challenges you to be creative with your photography, and get yourself in with the chance to win the photography prize. Taking interesting photographs in this instance isn’t about flashy cameras or a great deal of technical know-how, it’s about setting up a story or scene in a photograph and capturing something imaginative. Your photograph(s) should feature something related to your craft, so that might be either a knitted or crocheted item, yarn, or one of your craft tools. One example of setting a scene would be to photograph a girl in a knitted red cape walking through the woodlands with a basket of goodies, as in the Red Riding Hood tale, or you might photograph a knitted gnome hiding among the flowers in your garden. Photo editing is permitted for competition photos. Here are a few examples of my own photographs to illustrate an imaginative use of photography, but you can do much better than these…”
You’d think with how much I love photography, that I’d be super excited for today’s post. Unfortunately, with my current housing set-up, getting really awesome photographs is incredibly difficult. And knowing that is a major hindrance for me, and my creativity. I can’t tell you how much anxiety I have over photographing my FOs, and what is required in photoshop to make anything look halfway decent.
I really need to look into one of those miniature studio set-ups I’ve seen. Manages to work for many other crafters. :)
But alas, I would be remiss to not share with you one of my all-time favorite crafty photographs. SO, from the semi-distant past, I pull this one from Contessa’s archives:
That’s probably about as creative as I get. :p
