Day 9 – Preparation and Presentation

31 days to crafts show

Working through my Craft show prep, I’m on day 9. Molly, on her 31 day journey focused on photography. I think I need to spend some more time on this one, but for now I have learned a little.

Humans are visual. The more appealing something looks the more we want it. So it is very important to take great, clear pictures.

The best place for me to take photos is on my back deck, lots of natural light.

The second part of my post is about preparation. I wanted to know what I was starting with, so I took a picture (not on my back deck) of all the yarn I currently had on hand.

Since I had taken this in my room, I had some extra clutter in the back of the shot. I wanted to get rid of it so I used the eraser tool on Pixler.com. Pixler is a wonderful FREE tool that helps you retouch and work with your photos. I’ve lighten pictures, added words to my photos. It’s great! And did I mention: FREE???!!!

Here are some examples:

Taking photos of my work is something I really need to work on. Do you have any tips or tricks to working with photography?
