But if I didn't love order, I certainly wouldn't be quilting in my spare time, now would I?
The photo above looks a bit impersonal I think, sort of like something you might see in a catalog. I couldn't resist trying a plain white background though since the fabrics were so colorful themselves.
If you ever want to take a photo like this, it is actually super easy. Here's how:
I opened up the curtains and put a chair in front of the natural light coming in.
It happened that there was an old and HUGE calendar from last year hanging around. I used the back of it which was white, and sort of draped it over the chair. You could also just use a huge piece of white paper or poster board. I would not use fabric since any small crease will show. I then put the fabric stack right in middle and started clicking away.
You know I love photography, and helping folks take better photos for their blogs is something that has always been on my mind.
I wrote a guide for crafters who do quilting, knitting, and sewing to inspire and help people take better photos. It's free and it's posted here if you're interested.
If there is a blog out there that you think has exceptional photos, let me know, I'd love to see it.
