It is easy enough to fall into a routine of photographing your finished projects as is – clearly displayed, maybe from a few varying angles, and for a large part of the time these are what blog readers will expect to see, but every now and again it is good to throw in a picture that causes people to linger.
Refresh your skills at creating attention-grabbing pictures.
I’m not sure exactly how “attention-grabbing” these pictures really are, but I definitely had a lot of fun with them! I was thinking about this prompt last night and setting up my camera and such. On the topics page for this blog week there were a number of suggestions; I thought about following one or two of those, but ultimately decided I’d have more fun if I tried to think outside the shared ideas.
My little models were incredibly patient and no knitting was harmed during the process. (There was a moment of interest from Graham, but much to my relief he decided not to eat it. I gave them some bell pepper almost immediately before draping them in shawls, so they were mostly satiated.) I thought about trying more creative staging, but the amount of time it seems “fair” to leave a guinea pig under a shawl is “zero minutes,” and I didn’t want to take any longer. ☆
