KCBW Day 2 - Photography Challenge Day!

Today challenges you to be creative with your photography, and get yourself in with the chance to win the photography prize. Taking interesting photographs in this instance isn't about flashy cameras or a great deal of technical know-how, it's about setting up a story or scene in a photograph and capturing something imaginative. Your photograph(s) should feature something related to your craft, so that might be either a knitted or crocheted item, yarn, or one of your craft tools. One example of setting a scene would be to photograph a girl in a knitted red cape walking through the woodlands with a basket of goodies, as in the Red Riding Hood tale, or you might photograph a knitted gnome hiding among the flowers in your garden. Photo editing is permitted for competition photos - 3KCBWday2

Tuesday is always a manic day around here and so with just an hour to come up with an execute the idea, I'm pleased to present to you Pixie Winslet.

    1. Yes - it's rubbish but I didn't have any proper pencils or paper and only had 10 mins to do it by the time I set up the picture. Maybe one day I'll redo it and make a better job of it. There is another version of this photo with a drawing Little Miss did of it - I'll save that for another day :)

  7. Haha that's brilliant! I've really struggled with mine, infact I've kinda given up and my pictures are predictable and boring (they're not up yet). I love photography, but I suck when it comes to imagination.
