Today's topic for day two of the Third Annual Knitting And Crochet Blog Week is as follows:
Today challenges you to be creative with your photography, and get yourself in with the chance to win the photography prize. Taking interesting photographs in this instance isn't about flashy cameras or a great deal of technical know-how, it's about setting up a story or scene in a photograph and capturing something imaginative. Your photograph(s) should feature something related to your craft, so that might be either a knitted or crocheted item, yarn, or one of your craft tools. One example of setting a scene would be to photograph a girl in a knitted red cape walking through the woodlands with a basket of goodies, as in the Red Riding Hood tale, or you might photograph a knitted gnome hiding among the flowers in your garden. Photo editing is permitted for competition photos.
I actually had a really tough time with this one. I take photos pretty regularly, and I enjoy taking pictures that create a story, but nothing I did came out quite right. That was until I remembered a photo I had once seen with Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon done with thread. I had been wanting to do it in yarn for some time, so today seemed like the perfect day to do it. I give you Dark Side of the Yarn.
There is a bit of a double meaning in the title. It is a parody of Dark Side of the Moon, but it reveals another dark side: the amount of yarn I have. I had no idea that I happened to possess the entire rainbow in fingering weight yarn.
Today is a photography competition as well, so if you happen to think this photo is the bee's knees, go over to eskimimi's site and vote for me.
