Gotta speed it up and then slow it down

After a really productive few weeks, things have slowed up again. This is mostly due to life getting in the way and being busy with other things. But this week I am determined to get productive again and start getting some stock together ready for Christmas Fairs etc..

I have also signed up to sell with two online shops, but I will tell you more about this soon as nothing has been listed yet. First I need to take some better photographs of some of my work.

I know I have mentioned before that this is something I struggle with, but at the moment I have hit a bit of a brick wall and can't seem to get the type of shots I want. Part of this is whenever I seem to have some time available, its always too dark and the photo's are rubbish. Then its the setting. I ideally want some lifestyle type shots, so want to take photo's of my cushions in situation. I am finding this a bit tricky as all my chairs seem to be too light or dark or patterned, or not against a plain way and I can't seem to find the right place in my house. I am also struggling with making the cushion the main focus, but still having it in a setting. So I need to have yet another try, so I am hoping for early evening sunshine this week!

And on a rather exciting note, I have been featured on this lovely blog. http://charlottehupfieldceramics.blogspot.com


  1. Oh no you have the same problems as me. I've made loads of cushions but haven't got round to listing them because my photos aren't fab. I think yours are lovely and crisp and clear.

  2. These for photographs are PERFECT! love the composition... very well done you!
