Hi! Welcome to We Heart Yarn!
My name is Gail, aka Neuroknitter. I'm a wife, sister, daughter, friend, and mom to four cats, and work full time in a multiple sclerosis research laboratory.
I've been shooting digitally since starting this blog - almost 8 years now!
I shoot with a Canon 5DMkII (full frame), and my go-to lens is the 100mm macro.
I mostly shoot knitting and fiberarts as still life compositions, but have developed quite a passion for food and nature photography over the years, and will frequently shoot food with my knitting, and my knitting out in the wild! Recently, I've been expoloring landscape, candid portraits, and night photography.
I'm not very active on Pinterest, so creating a style board proved challenging. I have very few boards and the one most populated was the food board, so I thought I would use that to inspire and define my style for this assignment.
For this assignment, I'm photographing a finished pair of socks and the remaining yarn from the skein. I wanted to purposely prop my images with items I would use for food, so I used a ceramic bowl, mug, and cookie sheets. The "napkins" are hand-dyed wool squares that I recently acquired.
Thank you, Britt! This was a great assignment. It made me stop and think about style and mood and what I was wanting to accomplish with my imagery. I'm planning to start a formal style/mood board and will keep adding to it over time.
I'm looking forward to viewing each of your assignments over the weekend! :)
p.s. for the knitterly crowd,
