I've been working and studying hard, and have not had time to knit very much. But I was so inspired by Canaryknits' Swirling Gauntlets (pattern by Susanna IC), that I had to start on a pair. Thankfully today I had a long wait in the dentist's waiting room, and was able to bind off one of them. I thought the color really popped on my neurology book:
My sis tells me my blog photography leaves much to be desired. Maybe my little point-and-shoot Olympus FE-230 isn't quite up to snuff. I'm considering getting a "real" camera, but I have no idea where to start.
VeganYumYum posted this fantastic overview of blog photography--she blogs about (very good-looking) food, but I figure a lot of it applies to knitting, since it is all about close-up yummy stuff. It would be nice to be able to, oh, focus on certain parts of the picture, instead of having the camera guess what I'm doing. I'm considering taking a class. Alicia Paulson/Posie gets Cozy has been blogging about her photography class (which I don't really get because her photos were just fine to start with), and I guess there is a lot to learn!
So, dear readers, any good suggestions for a starter camera? Something that's small, but can be built up as I figure out what I'm doing?
