ozsuzsanna said...

Cute pillow! My best photography tip (because I am a shocking photographer) is to keep your fingers away from the lens. ;)

Erin @ Missy Mac Creations said...

Of course I'm a follower. :)

Binks said...

Man... I'm super bad at photography and use my phone to take pictures. So I don't really think I can give you a very useful tip, besides don't use a cell phone's camera.
Love your work.

pippablue said...

I always try and take pictures outside, and also to prop the camera on something so it doesn't move. I use picnik to edit photos. Having said that I have a lot to learn..lol! Absolutely adore this cushion!!!

pippablue said...

Following!

Anita said...

It's beautiful! I don't take good pictures...poor lighting.

Thanks for a chance to win.

Anita said...

I'm a follower too!

Karen said...

Totally with you on blog photos! Augh...can only use poor light and weather as excuses for so long...I may eventually invest in a better camera, but will it help?

Katie said...

Very cute cover!

I have tons of tips, but mostly for film and not sure how they translate to digital. First of all, do not use the flash on your camera, unless you happen to have a diffuser for it. Use natural light either outside or using a window indoors. And slightly overcase days are better for outdoor shots because the clouds act as a diffuser. Just remember that your camera sees differently than you do. It exaggerates contrasts that your eye may not pick up.

Jen said...

Beautiful pillow! Photography tip...set your ISO as low as it will go to avoid grainy photos.

Catherine said...

I'm definitely not an expert on photography, as my latest blog post shows! If I don't have a tripod (ie most of the time!) I try to use something steady to lean on such as a gate or wall so that the camera doesn't shake too much.

Catherine said...

And I'm following!

Team D said...

Cute pillow. I don't have an photog tips either. My camera is super old and does not take great pictures.

kathy said...

You can use a large sheet of white foam-core (used in picture framing)to help direct light on dreary days. It also stores flat.
I also use adobe photoshop and/or Canon Zoombrowser to trim and/or work with the brightness/contrasts settings.

Nicole said...

Can't say I would have any good tips. I like to take milestone pictures of my kids, rather than pay to have someone else do it. My best shots are always outside when it isn't too sunny. And I take a whole lot of pictures so that hopefully a get at least a couple that turn out well. Thanks so much for the chance to win your beautiful cushion!

Tina said...

Another great blog to follow.

Laurel09 said...

I definitely find that it if the light inside isn't good, photos outside always turn out better! Thanks for the chance to win!

Melissa said...

I'm a follower. :)
Thanks for the fab giveaway!

Melissa said...

The best photography tip I can give you is to use natural light. If not available, lots of diffused light using daylight bulbs. A light box can be your best photo friend.

Thanks for giveaway...

Amanda St.Clair said...

I recently made a "light box" for taking indoor pictures using aluminum foil and wax paper. Works well if it's nice and sunny outside.

The Hungry Crafter said...

That is such a gorgeous pillow -- how generous! I'm still working on my photography as well...looking forward to what your other readers have for tips! My biggest discovery this year has been trying to fix up photos using editing tools in either Flickr or iPhoto -- while you can never truly make up for bad light, you can push a photo a long way!

Claudia said...

Beautiful pillow. If find it difficult to photograph larger quilts. But natural lighting, if you can direct it and a good zoom lens work well.

Marcia R said...

Love the selvage action on that pillow! My photo tip: Find the exact right spot to set up your subject. a plain hardwood floor, a leather chair, a large piece of white beadboard.

{Leila}Where the Orchids Grow said...

My one and only photography trick is take photo's on a plain background in natural light. And learn to use Picknik for the rest. It's all I do and most days my photo's turn out decent enough.
Wonderful cushion!

Marcia B said...

Lovely pillow! Thanks for participating in the give-away!
My photo tip is to make sure your lens is clean for a sharper picture! :)

Susan said...

wow-beautiful pillow. take photos outside or with natural lighting. i love photos that are not 'set up' and catch people how they are.

A tip from my husband who does most of our photography,have more than one object (or person) in your picture.

Your photos are definitely better than mine! So, I shouldn't be the one to give any advice! Love the pillow! arkgina@hotmail.com

OhioMomPatriot said...

My tip is take lots of photos at different angles. I always come up with one that is better than I thought it would be.

OhioMomPatriot said...

I follow you. Thanks for the sweet giveaway!

Cherie said...

Love this! My best tip is to use natural light whenever possible. Take photos outside in the afternoon when the light is softer.

Kristal said...

I love your pillow! As a viewer, I like it when there are both detail shots and shots of the entire object (which you have done). Sometimes you're left not knowing what the entire thing looks like.

liz said...

I wish I had some great photography tips! I'll be looking through your comments to pick some up myself!

Kate said...

I don't know much about photography, but I find that in point and shoot cameras, if you turn off your flash and find as bright a spot you can, it turns out better.

Beyond that, I have nothing! Lovely pillow though :-)

diane said...

playing with the aperture setting is the best tip anyone has ever given me.

Carrie said...

My photo tip: pay a pro! :) Beautiful pillow!

djaj said...

Lovely pillow case !
Please count me in !

pwollen said...

Natural lighting might help make the photos pop. I wish I had more tips but I need to work on my photos as well. Good luck!

Cathy said...

Turn off the flash and use natural lighting or attach a separate flash and bounce it off the ceiling or a wall behind you (rather than using the little pop-up flash on your camera). Good luck!

Shannon said...

This pillow (sorry, statesider here) is absolutely adorable. Thanks for the giveaway. My only photo tip is use a tripod! That makes everything so much stiller.

Melinda said...

I do more photographs outside because I don't have great lighting inside. There are some great tutorials out there for light boxes which might be worth some time!

Melinda said...

craftytammie said...

natural light is always best, i think that's the most important thing i've learned. lovely cushion!

Two Wednesdays said...

I always find the light really hard to get right - but I am planning to make a light box to help - http://www.aspoonfulofsugardesigns.com/2010/08/let-there-be-light.html has a great tutorial (sorry I still can't work out how to insert a hyperlink into a comment!)
So that's my tip - a light box.

Tamster said...

hmmm, Make sure that your camera is switched on & not on some random setting like "fireworks". I fail everytime lol

Tamster said...

Glaucia said...

Lovely pillow!
I think my best tip is about light too. Avoid built in flashes and use natural light as much as you can. A white back helps a lot when shooting colored stuff.
I've built a very simple lightbox, that way I don't depend on the weather to shoot my photos.
here is a link:
http://www.digital-photography-school.com/how-to-make-a-inexpensive-light-tent
this is a good site to get some hints too.
Mine,I used a wooden structure instead of a cardboard box. I hope it's a helpful hint :)
Thanks for the giveaway!

Glaucia said...

oh.. and now i'm a follower too! :)

antje said...

Very nice pillow!

Katrin said...

If you want to take pictures of people, always take another picture after the "official" one. People will relax when they think that the picture taking is over. And always kneel down when you take pictures of children. Cute pillow!

Amanda said...

The pillow is lovely! My tip, don't drop the camera, I have broken one or two due to this!

Colette said...

Swoon! That is one lovely cushion! Tip: always use natural light when you can and never center your subject in your lens.

Jen@thecraftingfiend said...

gorgeous! I say always try for natural light. I'm not much of a photographer myself though

Kylie said...

White foam board makes a great lightbox!

Kylie said...

I'm a new GFC follower- kylie c.

Bobbi said...

I always like to turn my head the other way and then click the camera -- to get "action" shots of people. Probably not the best photos, but they sure are fun!

Shevvy said...

My photos are rubbish, but the best tip I have is that even a bad digital can be improved with cropping. Just a small part can be very nice.

Anonymous said...

I was hoping YOU could give ME some tips!! LOL
I just keep snapping away and hope one of the pictures is a winner!
Justine - rivervujc@comcast.net

Cricket said...

My best tip is to Get Closer. Easy when it is a pillow, or something you have made, but kids, too, or other things. Get right up in their faces. I also like to zoom in to help the background blur. You need a good lens to do it properly, but if the background is far away, and you are zoomed in close, you will get clarity in the front and less in the back. Makes your subject of your pictures pop.

OakRose Mama said...

The pillow is very cute! I think the best tip is to take photos with natural light outside but in the shade. Morning or late afternoon I find is the best time since the light is not too harsh. Also it helps to use props to keep things interesting.

Kasey said...

I like natural light and old weathered boards (our broken-dock dock makes a great backdrop).

Quilting "b" said...

I love this pillow, thank you for a wonderful giveaway. I am not very good at taking pictures but natural light seems very important

Katy Cameron said...

Hmm, best tip, use a plain background and plenty of even light when photographing things to sell (and perhaps not like the green cutting mat I often use for blog photos as I can't be bothered to get the white background out ;o) ) Great cushion, thanks for the chance to win :o)

thriftaholic. said...

I guess play around with different settings like light balance and exposure to get different effects!

Bri Bee said...

I love the pillow!

Karen P. said...

put the item your taking a photo of in the window where the morning light is coming in!

Wendy said...

What an adorable pillow!

My photography tip: before you snap the photo, allow your eye to look at the TOTAL picture in your viewfinder. Too often we are so focused on the focal point, we forget to pay attention to the background!

caribousmom (at) gmail (dot) com

kluckingbear said...

I have a terrible camera--I can't adjust shutter speed or anything else :( My advice--spend the $$and get a good camera!

Anita said...

I'm a point and shoot type of photographer, so I guess my only tip would be that some of my best shots are the least posed!

Alli said...

I'm still not very good at taking nice pictures, but my advice is to crank up the ISO if you have to take pictures indoors. :)

Heather said...

Absolutely gorgeous pillows. My photo tip: It's okay to use a tripod.

Irina said...

oh... I'm not a greg photographer, but my best revelation was to use natural light as much as possible instead of flash...

Irina said...

I'm your follower, thanks for the chance!

Kathy said...

I feel your photo pain - I'm not very good. One thing I learned to use on my camera was the 'soft' option on my flash. It doesn't wash out the colours as much. Thanks so much for the give away :)

lisawith4 said...

Sweet little pillow/cushion!
Photography tip: use natural light.
I'm not very good at photography so i'll have to read through some of the other comments to learn some tips myself.

strandkorbtraum said...

when phtographing agaisnt the sun use some cardboard (or somethign similar) to screen off the camera lense - make sure it's out of the picture! - that way it is possible without that suddenly all white background

Meghan said...

great pillow! I try to take candids at family functions to capture what's going on- a lot don't turn out great, but when you take enough you get some classics!

Meghan said...

and I'm now a follower, looking forward to future posts!

Sophia said...

My photo tip is the old stand by, try to use diffuse natural light, when ever possible.

Needled Mom said...

Darling!!! I love the hint of selvages too.

Patti said...

Love the pillow. How wonderful to have 2 giveaways! I'm attempting to get better at photography as well, and it seems lighting is everything!!

Jill aka ThatMoxieGirl Designs said...

My best tip is to use natural lighting. Also use nature as a background. It'd neutral and not distracting to the eye, but still provides textural interest.

Jill aka ThatMoxieGirl Designs said...

also a follower!

Carole said...

love your cushion! My photography tip is to keep an eye on what's in the background of your photo - some things can distract from the main object - that's my problem!!

Pam - said...

Oh my, what a beautiful pillow cover. Love it! I'm not much of a photography expert, but I do remember one tip that I've used with little kids & that is to get down on the floor/ground level with them instead of always shooting down on them.

Pam - said...

I'm a new follower, too!

Violet's Mama said...

I need the photography tips myself LOL. But my only advice is get close! Love the pillow and the fabric choices

StephanieS said...

Beautiful pillow. I think the best photography tip is good lighting. Natural light is best.
stephspitzer at gmail dot com

Rainbowartist said...

Natural light is almost always preferable to flash, especially if you don't have one of those fancy removable flashs.

:: miss m :: said...

Adorable pillow!

My tip is that if you're using any form of lightning, even if it's supposed to be "natural" spectrum, play around with the white balance on your camera anyway. It's amazing the difference that little setting can have!

Annabella said...

I adore that pillow cover - thanks so much for the chance to win it. My tip is to always frame your shot using the thirds rule, so divide the view into thirds and frame your subject on one of the thirds lines - it will make the resulting image more interesting than the subject being square in the middle. Good luck - I love photography!

Annabella said...

Emily V said...

Photographer I am not, but I would say to capture the moments that make you smile, but are not necessarily staged photos. I love black and white and also black and white photos with a color accent. Thank you for the opportunity to win, Merry Christmas.

Pattie Wall said...

I think your photos are fine - but I always watch what KIND of light I am shooting under, don't always use a flash...but then you have to open the lens farther, which means holding very still. I use a tripod when I can.

sandyandcosmo said...

My tip is to take several shots with different flash settings to see what works best. Thanks for the giveaway!

Mika said...

I think your photos look great, but I'm not even close to being good at it..so take it with a grain of salt! LOL!

Jo said...

I'm not a good photographer, but my aprons looked great when pictures were taken outside ... in the wood shed! Lovely items and thanks for the giveaway

kay said...

I personally like natural light as opposed to flash. So near a window during the day! Thanks for the chance!

Jo said...

I am now following!

Robyn said...

My tip would be become good friends with a professional photographer (because I know nothing about photography!) Thanks for the giveaway! robyn(dot)geddes(at)gmail(dot)com

knitgirl66 said...

My hint is don't let you hair get in the way of the lens.

Kelli said...

What a sweet pillow! I also need to work on my photography skills, so I don't have much to add, but I'd say use natural light and keep a clean background without a lot of distraction. Not that your photos need this advice, it's just what I always think first to myself. ;)

Sydney said...

What a gorgeous pillow! I love the colors :) I think the key to good photos is good light most of all... Other than that, it's all little tweaks and experience!

batikmania said...

Pretty pillow. Looks good on camera too. I like the details you've showed here. The first pic, showing the detail of a part of your pillow, it's nice. IMHO, it's better to add some more light on it. You can put your object surrounded by something white to make it looks brighter. OR you can add some more effect to make the other part become a bit blurry (macro photography would do, I guess :p). It could create a dramatic effect to your photo, and make sure that the important part of the object looks clear and sharp.

Christy said...

Always use natural light when taking your photos.

Thank you so much for your lovely giveaway!

bassenav said...

Use more than one flash, and make sure they have defusers. Thanks!

Very pretty!
My tip is to take a lot of photos and see what works best for you. Also...angles. My quilts always seem to look best when I take them from the lower left or right.

margaret said...

Take picture later in the day. The low light level makes everything look better.

KatheG said...

Too cute pillow! As for your photos - keep on taking pictures watching whatever you do until you find what looks best. It's like sewing - the more you do the better it becomes. Thanks. KatheGTN at aol dot com

KatheG said...

And I am followng - and will see your improvement in photography. Thanks KatheGTN at aol dot com

Bossymamma said...

If you need to zoom in for a shot but don't have a tripod, use a sock filled with rice to rest the camera on.

Linda said...

My pics improved a hundredfold when I started using a better camera...so get the best camera you can :)

Gorgeous pillow!

Jo said...

Since Any picture I take is of my own finger or people without heads I am really the wrong person to ask.How about keep your camera lint free. Love the pillow!

Kathy said...

That's a lovely little cushion! Such pretty colors. I'm not great at photography, but I just keep trying until it's good enough. Daylight is the best.

Jo said...

Natural light is the best.
Cute pillow!

visit stuckincustoms.com. (that's my tip)

The Monkey's Mama said...

my tip is quantity... if you take 1000 pictures, theres bound to be one or 2 good ones!

jojoebi said...

find a spot in your house with good natural light but remember the light changes at the time of day/year, so if you have some pictures that come out really well make a note of when you took them

Anonymous said...

I don't have any photography advice except take pictures of people.

Rie said...

Go to the art store & buy a big sheet of white paper & use that as a background - works every time!! Good luck with it!

jessie4ann said...

When taking a photo outside, overcast days often are the easiest days as you don't have to worry about placement of the sun light/shadows.

jessie4ann said...

Jayme said...

If you have to use your built in flash, hold a white piece of paper over it to diffuse it. Especially for close up pictures. It gives it the light in needs without being super harsh.

Lady K said...

Use the Rule of Thirds to help plan the composition of your photograph. Avoid center positioning for dynamic photos. If you plan your composition, you want have to crop it in photoshop.

The pillow is very sweet.

Dr. Bec said...

Natural light almost always turns out better than a flash.

bagladyjenn said...

You can always use a piece of white foam core to relect flash lighting & make your picture brighter like in a studio. Good luck!

Rachel said...

Awesome giveaway!

I don't know if you should be taking photography tips from me - I'm a terrible photographer. But common sense tells me that if you're trying to photograph a puppy, it should probably be sleeping ;)

Having good lighting is always key for good photos.

Lisa C. in GA said...

If your camera has a Micro setting, practice with that until you are very comfortable. There is something about those micro shots that just draw me in every time, and it is great when you have detail to show off!

so cute! my tip is to always shoot in manual mode. You will start to get a much better feel for your camera. Thanks!

What a pretty "cushion!". I have no photography tips whatsoever! My photos are pitiful. I only have a point and shoot so I think investing in a nice camera is a must.

Good lighting and I really like using the macro function

C + C said...

Lovely pillow! My camera tip: Setting is EVERYTHING! Back up your wonderful crafts with simple and subtle settings with 1 or 2 colors at the most and no complicated textures/patterns. You want the spotlight on your craft -- not the background. It should compliment the item rather than take the attention away. Good luck! I am hoping for a DSLR camera from Santa :)

Danna BC said...

I think you should use a good camera. (Sadly I took a photography class in college and that's the best I've got. Lol.)

Eight from Three said...

I'm not the right person to be giving suggestions, because sometimes I leave the lens cap on and wonder why its black !! Hope that's not too basic a suggestion as I would love to win your pillow.

wipgirl said...

So lovely! I wish I had great suggestions for photography, but I'm not much of a photographer myself. I know natural light is best, but I live in a dark corner of the world and that's just not always possible! I'm thinking about building myself a cheap light box (http://www.neverhomemaker.com/2010/11/how-to-build-light-box-photography.html) because that would definitely help out at least with small projects!

I really don't have much photography knowledge. All I can say is have good natural (but not direct sun) lighting.

Sarah said...

Adorable cushion!

My tips is to never delete photos you aren't sure about (aside fro bad focus/lighting/composition) until you've converted them to B&W.
I shoot (almost) exclusively in color but get my best B&W from shots that I don't quite love in color.

Elisa Black said...

Your cushion/pillow is wonderful! And its so generous of you to offer two lovely giveaways. Photo tips: if you're using flash, always be at least 4 feet away from your subject. Also, when I am editing my photos (I use iPhoto), I usually "adjust" the "exposure" level, which makes the image lighter and brighter (which is esp. helpful if you've taken an inside shot and/or the light conditions are poor).

Elisa Black said...

I signed on as a follower yesterday, when I ready your first giveaway post and viewed your blog.

Zoe said...

my best photography tip would have to be to stress the importance of steady natural light - I always forget about the dappled effect I get from under my big gum tree!

Do not center the photos, use the rule of thirds

I love your pillow and i am so sorry, have no tips for you. I am only a click-clack photo maker!!!!

andreacreates said...

natural lighting is what i try to use-my pictures turn out best this way :)

Kate said...

My tip is to always use a tripod or something else to steady the camera-- even a tiny bit of handshake blurs the lovely details like stitches. akmajor (at) gmail (dot) com

Vicki said...

LOVE the pillow! My hubby edits my photos for me, but I don't loan him out, sorry. lol Vicki avablondie(at)aol (dot) com

Sonja said...

I love how you used the fabric seam labels. How gorgeous! My photography tip, not very professional but... here goes. Use natural light and take duplicates. You can always not use the bad ones and keep only the good ones. That way you look like a photography genius!

Anna Kristine said...

I love this! I'm not the best photographer but I always try to use natural light if I can...it makes photos look so much better! :)

Val said...

Boy, your picture didn't have to holler at me twice to come on over--it just sings to me! I, too, am not a very good photographer but my daughter told me to set up objects in a 'v' shape-does that make sense -and take lots of pictures so it is easier to choose the one you like best.

Val said...

You now have a new follower--looking forward to exploring!

I guess good lighting is my tip but I strive to make my photos better too!

CMEH said...

I think that framing is the most important tip I have. I think that creative and proper framing is what I have found to be most important in photography. I use a simple digital camera and get great shots! I worked on this last year and think I have been getting great shots! Good luck!
