Outstanding Images for the Fiber Artist


I'm so excited to announce that my very first Fiber Arts course will be available starting this Saturday on FiberyGoodness!!!! It has been a dream of mine for an extremely long time even before I got into Fiber Arts about being able to help Artisans to take the best photos of their work possible to really showcase the amazing hard work they've put into their creations. It can be so difficult to capture the real beauty of three dimensional work, to really capture it's essence and allow the viewer to get a full grasp of the amount of work that has gone into the subject matter as well as a feel for it.

Through this course I share my techniques and skills I use only a daily basis to photograph my projects. Students will learn about the basics of photography including how to get the best lighting, composition, and the best ways to use your camera whether you are using a DSLR or Mobile device. The course has been tailored specifically for fiber artists whether you are a spinner, weaver, knitter, crocheter etc. Suzy Brown (Woolwench) has also added a special section about branding your work and making your photographs tell a story. This can greatly help your work stand out among the rest and allow it to be easily recognized as your work when anyone sees it.

We will be opening enrollment on FiberyGoodness on Saturday(5pm PST) and run a live event on Sunday(2:15pm PST) to answer any questions you might have about our course.
