I spent 2 hours last night taking pictures of all my stash to upload to Ravelry... I discovered this morning when I downloaded all the photos that the lighting I was using (Reveal bulbs) were not enough light and all the pictures (74 of them) came out too dark to tell what color they truly are. Some of the dark blues and purples just look black. I should have just taken a few and then downloaded them to check them out. I was too excited and wanted to get them all in my stash list now!

I've been wanting to buy a professional light box for taking photos of finished items and this is just one more reason to now start looking seriously at really purchasing one. It would have saved me a lot of work and a few curse words too.

I'll probably give it another shot by using the flash on a few shots and see if that will work. I'm afraid it will be too much and make the colors flat and too flooded with light... only a few experiment shots will tell.


  1. I'm so sorry that you had that happen, but admire your restraint. I would have been cursing like the proverbial sailor!

  2. Sorry your photography didn't turn out too well. See you knitting this week.
