Like a lot of other knitters, one of the reasons I love knitting is that it’s very difficult to see yourself getting to the end of the line, once you’re on the train. It just keeps going. There’s always more to do – more yarns, more techniques, more patterns, more yarn shops, more ideas. I am realizing now that photography resembles this as well. Even if you get good at using one concept or technique or camera lens…there’s always more you could do, man. This could get fun.
I’m halfway through my course (essentially, DSLRs 101), and have gotten to learning a few new things and it is very refreshing, as well as having the excuse to get out and practice. Sadly there does not appear to be a course on the curriculum for “Knitting Photography 101,” but thankfully many of these skills are transferable, and other knitters are smart folks. I look forward to more exchange of knowledge and learning in this area.
Here are some of my favourite shots from the last few weeks! More next time – hopefully with an almost-finished Gwendolyn cardi to report about!
