This is no reflection on what actually happened on Christmas Day – we had a lovely day (and a very pleasant morning walk in Rowney Woods, which we had all to ourselves)…but it was an amusing title.
If you look back through this 366 project you will see periodic examples of my wife’s knitting. Well, she’s now going to try and earn some money from her hobby so obtained a dummy head and a separate torso for modeling and display purposes. So I got presented with a large array of knitted goods to photograph. I used a spotlight lamp as a fill light and my Nikon SB600 flash as my main light sources and did OK. It does have to be said, I need to get a replacement for the spotlight lamp and I need to get a roll of paper for backgrounds. Still, not a bad start.
Oh, by the way, she’s called Ena (after Ena Sharples of course) and the torso is called Hilda (Ogden – both from Coronation Street if you didn’t know).
