So creation – invention not sure where today falls! I originally thought that I would be posting about the arm knitting that I have been doing, but in trying to take some photos of what I have made, I opened up a can of worms–How to take photos of scarves. Of all the things I make it seems that I struggle most with photos of scarves.
I have a vintage mannequin which I tried to use today, but it wasn’t very successful.
So after freezing my fingers off taking photos outside and inside I am trying something new.
I decided to try a flat cardboard model of a head and shoulders that I can use to drape a scarf.
It was interesting finding out what dimensions to use. I used 9″ as the head length and then the rest of the dimensions from this site.
So far I think I will like it, need to figure out how to hang it outside when taking pictures. Not what was planned for today, but hopefully this will solve a long standing problem for me.
So this is the last day of my 5 day challenge to create something every morning. I’m glad it’s over, the first two days I thoroughly enjoyed the process, by the third day I started to struggle with focus and staying on track. But the biggest problem (??) is that even though I only intended for this to take up the mornings it really took much more time than that.
