In Which the Pirate Takes Pictures.

3KCBWDAY2 – 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.

Me an’ the macro lens had a good time.

  3. Emily says:

    I love the pink and green wound skein macro! It looks like a great colorwork pattern!

    • Pirate says:

      I thought that too. Maybe I’ll have to design something along those lines… hmm, ideas on top of ideas!

  4. Sophie-Lili says:

    yarn is just so beautiful, I love how you can see all the fluffy details in your pictures, they would make great screensavers ! (and I wonder why I’m addicted)

    • Pirate says:

      I keep thinking about using pictures like these to put on notecards, or postcards, or something.

  5. lynn says:

    I love pic #2- a wonderful web of fluffy beauty!

    • Pirate says:

      Thank you! That will eventually become the Dancing Cranes stole. I should work on that tonight… and every night until it’s done.

  6. Great use of macro. It was so dark this morning at my flat that macro would have been no good at all!

    • Pirate says:

      Thank you! :) It can be hard to get good pictures sometimes, if the light isn’t just right. I think I’m going to build a photobox so I can take pictures even in the dark!

  7. Tecrin says:

    Gorgeous pictures!

  8. Karen says:

    Beautiful pictures! I love the yarn skeins close up. All would make fantastic note cards!

    • Pirate says:

      I’ll have to look into having cards printed up. The more I think about it, the more I like the idea.

  9. Lovely photos. Yarn is such an inspiration to photograph isn’t it. So many luscious colours and textures.

  10. Sue says:

    love the yarn in your final picture

    • Pirate says:

      Thanks! It’s my latest addition to the stash, Patons Kroy Socks Ragg Shades. I’ve been eyeing this colourway for a long time and finally gave in to temptation.

  11. Heather says:

    Oh I love the textures! They really work out well.

  12. Pumpkin says:

    So many lovely textures! The lacy one is definitely my favorite!

    • Pirate says:

      I should have an updated picture of the project’s progress for Thursday’s post. It’s definitely bigger than the last time I took a pic of it!

  13. Evelyn says:

    I just want to lie among all your knitted things!

  14. Awesome textures, i love my macro lense! these would make awesome cards!

    • Pirate says:

      Enough people are saying that the pics should be on cards, I’m going to have to look into this!

  15. Faith says:

    Great pictures… your stripey things, especially the brown and pink together, and that crisscross pattern on the ball of yarn is really effective.

    • Pirate says:

      The brown and pink, and the purple/green below it, are part of the Stripey Striped Socks – I’m alternating five rows at a time from each end of a ball of Kureyon Sock. And I must say, I hate knitting with the stuff, but I love the stripes and how the socks are turning out!

  16. Faith (tvs) says:

    I felt like I was drowning in fiber. Lovely job!

  17. Liz says:

    I love all the different textures together!

  18. Triona says:

    Mmmm… love me some macro lens shots! I got a new camera a few months ago with a macro lens and spent the whole first day playing around with depth of focus, lol.

    • Pirate says:

      I swear, I could have taken pictures all day. I just kept putting more and more yarn in front of the lens. It was hard to pick the best ones to show!

  19. Kell says:

    Beautiful texture! Now I want to knit!

  20. Lovely catch of all those wonderful fibers!

  21. Kepanie says:

    It’s like being embraced in fiber!

  22. Gracey says:

    Third picture, the green OMG! I love!!!!!

  23. I love the details on these shots. I’m loving the fifth yarn, too!

  24. Knitting is endless beautiful, huh?
