I did a little free motion quilting practice yesterday in the thoughts that I could use the result as a background image for some new business cards.
The quilting was fun, the colors fabulous. I used a variegated turquoise, purple and teal thread from Superior Thread's Rainbows line on black Kona cotton.
I forgot how hard it is to photograph black quilts. Not to mention I am severely lacking in photography skills.
There's the flat horror of using the flash:
Poor focus, even though I used a tripod and the 2 second timer to keep from shaking the camera:
Used the landscape setting by mistake instead of the portrait setting which gives a better focus at close quarters:
If you can't beat them, join them......Something about the above photo clicked with me. Fiddle some more with camera settings and it's starting to look like an artistic background.
Now to go fiddle with the computer to make my business card. But which one will I use?
Maybe I'll stick to the above picture. I sometimes feel like I'm at the eye doctor when trying to edit a number of pictures, "Which one looks better, One or Two? One or Two?"
What do you think?
