Selecting the right colors for a project can be the difference between something that inspires “Oooohs” and “Aaaahhhs” and one that inspires yawns.
Knerdy Knitter Chris Bahls is the resident color expert at The Knitting Tree in Westchester. This is an informal distillation of his color wisdom.
Some people say no knitting or crocheting photo is finished until you’ve taken the photo.
No matter what kind of camera (or smart phone) you’re using to take a photo of a project – and no matter whether you just want to email a friend the photo, post it on Facebook or attract buyers on Ravelry or Etsy, the tips that follow can help you create a better photo of your work.
Before you pick up that camera, be sure your project is well blocked (if appropriate), free of fuzz or stray fibers and is displayed without distracting or distorting wrinkles or folds.
