Dye-a-day #4: Thick and thin yarn, and springy colours
On a 'photography' note, this is the first of the dye-a-day photographs I've taken myself. It didn't use any fancy lighting, just a white back drop and my on-camera flash. It's OK, but not up to the standards I want! I can see the texture of the background, there isn't enough light, and what light there is, is bouncing back at the camera too much. I didn't really expect this to work as well as it did, because every time I try something as simple as this, I have massive problems with colour balance. Perhaps it's something to do with the greens and browns, which my camera captures really well! Anyway, it's a 'baseline' for my ongoing search for a simple and successful (and preferably cheap and compact!) yarn-photographing-setup.
