This is our favourite wall for picturing quilts....which is fine, but now we are realising the sun moves so fats as it changed angle from day to day that our doorway to photograph seems to becoming smaller. We have to be out there by the time the light is just so bright and finished by the time it jumps the garden wall....which is earlier today than just a few days ago....This is spurring Praveen onto working out studio lighting so we have more control and more time options [ the room we will use is out the back so will be at the mercy of electricity supply but it has to be an improvement on where we are at at present - please just say yes to that one...I wish to be optomistic!
this is a really siny silk but more a soft sheen than the pictures give you- do you knwo silk is sssssoooo hard to photograph it reflects light so much.
I like the livliness it brings to the surface...this silk is warp purple and weft old gold so the tried putting the squares togther one by one with the gold or purple up which gives a subtle colour change as well. [Quilt #23 Kashish and Usha swinging needles, Shaquil machining]
Oh I wish we could magically find a good photographer....perhaps we need a new camera too....
life goes on
