Join me as I share my crafty journey with you. I continue to expand my repertoire of hobbies. I knit, sew, crochet, bead and probably most importantly am a lover of science fiction. Occasionally I even pick up a book. I play Nerd Wars for Team Stargate Command which consumes most of my time.

Knit Crochet Blog Week Day Three

Day Three (Wednesday 13th May): Experimental Photography And Image Handling For Bloggers. Every Year Knitting & Crochet Blog Week tries to feature at least one day where photography takes a key role, because it has been proven many times that what captures reader’s attention for the first few seconds to hopefully hold them long enough to invest the time to read your words is your pictures, and so this topic crops up each year, but every year it yields such different results!

     This is the one I struggle with every year.  I'm pretty simple when it comes to pictures and picture taking.  I do my best to take my pictures in good natural light, in order to capture colors at their truest.  As far as getting all artsy, meh, not so much.  I do like playing with color a bit so here are two skeins of yarn I played around with.

The yarn label says it all.
     Then there are the fun photo collage makers.  I've used Fotor in the past, but I tend to have uploading issues when I try to put things on the blog.  I just found a new app for the phone called Phototastic Collage.  (Its a Windows app.) 
The last four hats I knit in 2014

Two skeins of dishcloth cotton.
This app would have come in handy for my New Years post...  I could just do that now when I have everyone's attention!

The other three hats from 2014

I'm fairly certain the one collage I was able to post was the 7 shawls I made in 2014 so I won't do that one again.  This app works quite well.  The only downside is that you cant access the pictures on Facebook from inside the app, so make sure you have the pictures you want to use for the collage saved to the phone already.  It's quick though and has many options for backgrounds and layouts.  I'll have to play with this one some more.  
Tune in tomorrow for another topic.  Until later.  
Happy Crafting!
