The photos were taken with a simple digital camera that by now is a few years old...no bells, no whistles...just takes pictures. Could not even tell you what this camera does...it's a Sony with some optical zoom capacity. I got this one when my daughter got a newer and better model when she went to Europe with her school.
|This was taken in the evening - no natural light|
I tried to take pictures a couple of times at night, but quickly realised that just does not work, so nowadays I wait for daylight to do my pictures.
|Much better, taken in the daytime, but enclosed by white box|
Here I experimented with a white box but as you can see this produced a shadow.

I quite like the photo of the coloured fabric on the white background. Probably should cover my background with a white sheet or something. That spot on top of my sewing table has the best light for photographing small things like fabric or single blocks.
So the main issues for me are:
- natural light and a consistent spot to shoot my photos
- editing...I use Picaso which is easy enough, but I do spent a lot of time editing due to my poor shooting
Also wondering how many people use their phone to take pictures. I certainly have taken a few photos with my phone and must say, the phone almost does better pictures than the camera. Maybe I should experiment with the phone a bit more.
Linking up to Plum and June's Quilt Photography Workshop to have a look at how other people went about shooting their fabric.
