Photographing Your Knits
Today we are going to play a game of pretend. Here are the tips I am going to use when photographing you in your beautiful sweater:
- I am going to create a visual frame with the nature background, like we talked about last week.
- I am going to place you at least six feet in front of the background we are using, for example, a gorgeous blooming lilac bush.
- I also recommend using a low F-stop/aperture (f 4.0-6.0) or the portrait mode on camera to help the camera focus on you and your sweater and blur the background
- I also will double check to make sure there aren’t any hard shadows from tree branches coming across your face or garment
