The webiverse has been having a number of informative discussions about how to take better photographs of your knitwear (whether you’re selling the finished goods or the pattern). Here’s a reading list for you:
- A lively discussion on the Ravelry Designers’ forum that includes camera, styling, and lighting recommendations.
- An excellent article in the latest Petite Purls by Caro Sheridan on photographing finished knitted objects.
- Kay Gardiner (of Mason Dixon Knitting) on what she learned from a knit photography class with Gale Zucker.
- A thoroughly educational PDF by Conrad R. and Jeanne E. Hoffman on how to photograph knitwear (especially as a still life, rather than on a person).
There are lots of other people who have written on this issue, but let’s just call this a recent, representative list. Another time, I’ll collect some materials for you on the entirely separate challenge of photographing kids in knits.
