I've been on knitting blogs of all sorts lately looking here and there for patterns for different things, and one thing has really stood out to me (aside from the 100% pure TALENT and SKILL I've come across and beautiful knitting projects!)...the artistic photos that are posted on the blogs. I've tried to be "artistic" when I take pictures of my things, but I'll find that maybe you can't see the stitch detail, or I'll get something in the background that detracts, etc. The blogs I've visited showcase the finished object beautifully; you can see the stitch definition very well, and the finished objects are usually staged with little props or in really beautiful surroundings.
Are there tips or advice that anybody can offer when taking pictures of finished objects for blogs?
There's a bunch of examples I've come across but I can't find now, but here
is one example of the kind of photo I'm talking about. See how the picture itself is great, not to mention the finished object, and you can see all of the stitching?
