Next up is Firecracker!
Treasures & Tidbits by Piece O' Cake Designs
Here is the back cover
Next up was this fence.... with a curve to the top of it.
This shoot went ok... but not great.
By the end of it the wind was picking up fast.
I was photographing a few quilts this day and didn't want to put any of them down on the ground because of the snow. After I snapped a few photos I tossed the quilt on the fence for safe keeping. For some reason I took this photo & I love it.
I did try taking a few photos inside... but in general setting up artificial light is much harder than using natural lighting. This photo does show the cool quilting Angela did.
I use this fence in a lot of my photos... so I figured I'd try it for this quilt. The wind was really strong and getting a good photo was almost impossible.
The quilt was moving so fast that in many of the photos it is just blurry.
I liked how this photo shows the back... but felt like it covered too much of the front... but it did give me an idea of what I was looking for & inspired the eventual cover photo.
I waited till the next day when there was less wind... better light... switched camera lenses & got the right shot! Being patient with photo shoots is still a lesson I'm learning, but I know it's worth it to get the right shot.
