I was looking at some of the photos on free pattern sites recently and was — well, unimpressed. There are a lot of photos that just don’t look so hot: overexposed, underexposed or just plain unflattering. I get why — most of the people taking the pictures are knitters, not photographers, and either take the photos themselves anyway or bully a friend or spouse into snapping a photo.
Myself? I need to fill out my photo portfolio, and could definitely use more practice working with models, especially people who don’t think of themselves as models.
So I’m putting this out there: if you’re a San Francisco Bay Area resident and you need great-looking photos for a free knit or crochet pattern, drop me a line at arletterocks (at) gmail (dot) com and we’ll see if we can set up a photo shoot. Don’t be scared! Your original knitting is worth the attention.
It’s an offer that won’t go on forever, since school and work have me busy as a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs, but let’s see what we can do.
