    I love that srobist tut, i found it earlier on in the summer and made one myself. It’s remarkable how well the photos come out when you have some semblance of professional lightbox isnt it?

    Hi Lolly – I teach photography and it’s great to see a tutorial like this helping knit bloggers take better shots of their projects/yarn. There’s nothing more disappointing than seeing poorly lit/exposed/arranged/focussed photos of projects that have otherwise had so much love and care go into them. A few suggestions though – a lot of people don’t seem to understand that different light sources have different colour casts – it’s important if using artificial lights to set the white balance of your camera accordingly (for some AWB just doesn’t cut it). Because of this it’s equally important to try and avoid mixing your light sources – using an artificial light (a lamp) to supplement daylight will result in odd colours (when compared to each other daylight has a cool cast while a lamp, depending on the type of bulb, has a warm cast). The other thing that is important to note is that the camera may not necessarily give you the best exposure for the situation when set on ‘auto’ – setting the camera to slightly over (or under) expose may give you the better shot (richer or more accurate colours, more detail etc.)

    cheers :)
