I rely on daylight for decent photos of my knitting but since we have a few more months of this awful winter, I figured I better come up with an alternative. Using a combination of this tutorial and this one, I created a white box:
I have to say, I love this thing. It’s great for capturing true color and stitch definition. I’m itching to get more stuff on the needles just so I have something to take photographs of. I ended up grabbing whatever was laying about. Photos after the jump.
I used my Canon DSLR for the above photos. Out of curiosity, I took a photo using Conor’s Canon point and shoot:
All this time, I thought I needed a fancy camera to take decent photos of my knitting. Really, all I needed was decent lighting. A DSLR costs hundreds of dollars and the white box only cost $50 to make.
