jules-x-adventure said: Hello~! I'm a new amigurumi maker (or new to blogging about it, at least), and I was wondering if I could ask for some pointers on taking pictures of my work? You seem to have both the making and photographing part down. (My yarn blog is a side blog, otherwise I would be contacting you from that. Sorry -_-;)
Here is the post I’ve blogged a few weeks ago. Hopes this helps… :)
Ive recently had a lot of people asking what type of light box, I believe thats what its called, do I use. and if I have any tips for taking pics to show their items.
I honestly just use 2, SOMETIMES 3, white boards I bought from joanns at a really cheap price. And a desk light I had for the longest time, which I got at Hobby Lobby.
(Sorry for the messy room. haha)
Once I’m done taking as many pics of the item(s), I then upload the pics to Photoshop to make it a bit brighter. Which can be done by going to IMAGE> ADJUSTMENTS>CURVES…
I then move the cursor up and make it as bright as I want the pic to be. Once I like the way it looks, I select OK.
And thats really all I do. :)
I also like to crop my pics into a perfect square, but that’s just me. :)
I literally just use an A3 piece of paper, and I think my photos turn out pretty ok. :)
