How do you photograph your finished quilts???
Normally, I take a standard photo of the quilt hanging on my design wall……
I attempt to photograph it straight and then crop close to remove any excess wall.
Let’s be honest, this is about as boring as it gets!!!
As I mentioned in yesterday’s post, I recently spent a lovely 3 hours photographing three quilts in an outdoor setting…..the Georgia State Botanical Garden!!
After leaving the “tunnel” area, I came on a kids fort with a rope wall…..the perfect place for a baby quilt to hang……
I tried valiantly to hang it without pins, but ended up having to press two into the rope to keep it from sliding as I photographed. I was SUPER careful to remove the pins and take them away with me!!
In this area there were even more mushrooms and they provided a great backdrop to some “low-down” photos of one of the folded quilts…..
I looked behind me and saw three climbing rings that worked perfectly for a “group” photo…..
The sun really shows the colors shining thru, almost making them appear luminescent!!
One last fence in a handicap parking area was my last backdrop in this area….
I absolutely love the trees in the bakground!!
At this point I was hot, sweaty and ready for a cool drink…..
…..but there was still one more setting to visit…..
Stop back by on Tuesday for photos from this area.
I will also share information about an online I-phone photography course that has greatly improved my photos.
I promise that it will be…….
