Photography:

  • I have done several photography projects since I last podcasted, including hiring another photographer for a wedding. 

Photography Technique:

  • In this episode I talk about shutter speed in photography. If you have any questions, feel free to email me or PM me on Ravelry and I would be happy to answer your question. **Correction: at 38:57 I say you need a fast aperture, I meant you need a fast shutter speed.**

Thank you for listening!

They are all so lovely but The Rambouillet Big Blue fibre is gorgeous as is the Revolutions Sock in the colour Jean Jacket.I enjoyed the podcast very much and your Tan House Brook shawl looks beautiful on you.

    I love brides bouquet and jaded! I tend to prefer tonals to variegated just because it’s easier to find projects for yarns dyed that way.

    Normally I gravitate to teals and greens so I really like Jaded.. But I might have finally overdosed on that color. I think Blood Orange is beautiful.
