Shoot It! A Product Photography Primer »
InstructionsI used my Canon 550d/Rebel T2i on a large aperture for a close depth of field. F5.0, ISO200 with the camera being held steady on the back of a chair.
Type of item: Accessory
Style: Retro / Vintage, Classic, Romantic
Alpaca silk roving from Southern Alpaca's in New Zealand being spun fairly fine for a 2-ply yarn
What was your inspiration?
I really like close up photo's with the background blurred, especially for spinning shots as the wheel can be distracting.
What are you most proud of?
The fact that I got a clear shot with the long shutter time, that was hard work without a tripod. Used the back of an old chair to hold it steady. Also proud that I actually managed to find what I wanted in the manual, that thing is a bit of a pain to read.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Get past the fear of the manual, it's worth it!
