|Retro Golden Spring Headband|
I also took some time to familiarize myself with basic photography. According to my sister who is a hobby photographer: "It was about time!". Too tell you the truth, I always thought my pictures were quite fine. Until I checked out how the girls on Etsy do it. And then I realized ......I suck!
My photographs don't do my crochet justice, and that just wont do!
Of course, once you learn to snap a fairly good photo, you still aren't finished, as I innocently thought....That just opens the doors to........ Photoshop! Once I was convinced that Photoshop isn't evil, and not used only to make those gorgeous models look even better, and to hide blemishes and red eyes on family photos I got down to business. What I was most interested to learn was how the get a bunch of photos into one, like a compilation, and to be honest, that's as far as I got with my newly acquired Photoshop wisdom. Enough for now if you ask me.
When I started I focused on learning crochet techniques so I can design my own patterns, and thought that being a good crocheter was enough. Now I see to have success with crochet, and a satisfied audience, you need to be a programer, photographer, web designer, etc and the crochet part is what you have the least time for.....
So you will excuse me for posting rarely...It's just that, I still spend most my time crocheting, and the technical wait for me to be "in the mood".
I'm more active with posting my work on DeviantArt, so you can always pop in there, and check it out.
Until next time....hope you like my new photos, and enjoy the Spring Headbands!
