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…

image

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. :)

And AFTER.

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. :)

I’m quite happy with this little guy; I made him without following a pattern.
He needs a name. Anyone have any ideas?

Hello all! Apart from crocheting, I read an awful lot, and so I’ve made a blog for that too! I’ll be posting just general thoughts about books and things over there. Nothing too formal, just me getting my thoughts out there! So if you like books, I’d love to talk to you about them!

I felt like making up a pattern, so I’m currently making this! Excuse my messy handwriting in the back.

I spent today finishing off a snail I started about a month ago and making a paper Dalek whilst listening to the audiobook ‘Pest Control’.  I usually don’t like audio books too much, but I quite enjoyed this one; I probably liked it because it was read by David Tennant, so you got to here him as the Doctor, which was great. Also, it was funny to here him do Donna.

Pretty much as soon as I finished the last one I started to make another, instead of read like I said I would….oops :)
I really like the colours of this one!

I meant to spend today reading, but then I came across this pattern and I couldn’t resist…I’d been wanting to use my multi-colour wool for a while now anyway…

It only took me 10 or so episodes of Dance Academy :P

Now, back to reading for me!
