About me

My photo
I am a mother, a new grandmother, and a teacher. But whatever happens in my life, I keep sewing. I have worked as a political communicator and now as a teacher in my formal life. I have also written extensively on sewing. I have been a frequent contributor and contributing editor of Threads magazine and the Australian magazine Dressmaking with Stitches. My first book Sew.. the garment-making book of knowledge will be published in May 2018 and is available for pre-order from Amazon

On better garment pictures

I got a nice email today from Mariano Pastor, a photographer who also blogs on how to take better product, craft shots.

His entry on photographing a garment on a dress form is really good. Here is the link here. It's all about lighting and my own experiences with work-related photo shoots has always been that it comes down to lighting.

Now my own shots can only get better, so I am going to be reading Mariano's blog and trying to upgrade my own photography.

Thanks for the link! Great info. Of course, besides the know-how of properly photographing our creations, one actually has to slot a decent amount of time for the photography session, and in my world - that hardly ever happens.
