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...
Oh how I struggled with this topic! I racked my brains all day yesterday, but by the time I got the vaguest semblance of an idea there wasn’t enough light to take any photographs. The light today hasn’t been much better (thanks, rain!) but I did manage a few snaps so I’m putting this up today and hoping that no rules are being broken or bent. Judging by the quality of the entries I’ve seen, this is certainly no prize contender, but I thought a little yarn-evolution picture could be fun. So here it is, from fluff to yarn to ball to needles.
I couldn’t resist another picture, because hand wound balls of handspun yarn are just the prettiest things!
