What is exciting or interesting to you about your photo(s)? I read through my excruciatingly boring manual and started playing around with the camera settings. Taking it out of auto mode truly stressed me out at first. I had this in manual mode and did all the adjustments myself. I was like "Ahhhh yeah!!!" I don't know why I waited so long to be brave but I'm glad I finally did. What an awesome class this is! I'll be watching it again several times till I'm fully confident! LOL. This isn't a product image per say being that I'm still not finished with it but it was within reaching range when I was looking for something to photograph. This will eventually be a reversible Fair Isle hat for my daughter for Christmas. One side is Fair Isle and the reverse side is striped. Then pick up stitches along the edge and do a 2x2 ribbing.

Can you tell us about any special equipment or techniques that you used? Canon Rebel T3i/ 600D - 18-55mm lens. I also pulled out my new macro lense and played around with that as well. The yarn I'm using is Merino/Angora and wanted to see if I could capture the beautiful halo I was seeing. :-)

What are you most proud of? That I can see a gradual blurring out of the image as it goes further back.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I watched the entire class first before I even pulled out my camera. Then started going through it again and playing around with the camera's manual settings and reading the operations manual that came with the camera.
