Thanks to a publicity-averse friend, I now have a fine, fine camera! This generous and unexpected gift will allow me (once I've mastered the controls) to photograph details of my work and capture the colors more exactly. My friend knew that I plan to begin writing up and selling my patterns in 2010 and that I needed the right tools.
Look at those colors!
Oh, this is going to be fun! Thank you, dear friend-who-shall-not-be-named!
11/22 Edited to add details about the camera, as requested: Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ35. For the photos in this post, I simply threw the knitting onto the coffee table in slanting sunlight. I didn't do any fancy settings or reflect the light or anything--just snapped (I suppose that's still the word, just as we "dial" phones in this age of touch pads....) the pictures.
