I've been pretty bored with my photos lately. I've never figured out the lighting in my living room since changing over to natural lightbulbs for my lighting kit.
I finally realized the reason is simple: I'm missing a tree's worth of branches from the oak tree that shaded my living room! The light in my living room is so harsh now - I've struggled with photos since last Fall.
My kitchen is terribly dark (that's another story), but my front step is all white walls, which reflects all of the California sunshine right into my kitchen window.
I've had an image in my head for months and months about new photos for my hand knits (which includes knitting patterns). I finally tried some test photos this afternoon and am cautiously optimistic!
I'll talk more about styling in part two - I'm still experimenting! I'd love to hear what you think so far. I'll be trying more photos with evening and then morning light in the same spot, and want to add a lavender bunch to the right of the straw hat.
