I posted a review of my new red eyelet dress (and I never want to take it offfff.......). I think I've been reading too many blogs lately. I'm not a blog reader. But I kept seeing links about community discussions and I'm very curious about the relationship between bloggers and indie pattern companies so I kept clicking and scrolling (instead of doing my multiple choice practice problems shhhhh). Everyone has such cute photos of their finished items. I was feeling jelly! So I managed to persuade Mr Hanpanda to go take pictures of my new dress in front of the fountain at our apartment.They're cute! Only now I fear I'm getting spoiled and will be begging him to take pictures outside for MANY new patterns in ze future..... shhhh don't tell him!

Please excuse my typos...sometimes it is harder to go back and edit on mobile than it is worth!

Don't feel bad. My co-worker is forced to take my pictures! But mine have to be taken by my car, since there is no pretty place where I work. But, you're right - outdoor photos are the best!

You look great in your new red dress. I am sure that Mr. HanPanda can figure out a way to enjoy your photo session dates.

My best ever purchase for my blog was a tripod for my camera. I set my camera to wait 10 seconds before shooting - scoot to my pose - and the pic is taken without my needing any help. The tripod is collapsible and has a nice carry case with strap, I just put it over my shoulder, really small and light.

I actually have a full sized tripod too. I just feel significantly sillier posing for a tripod in front of my apartment than I do posing for a person behind the camera xD;

I invested in a collapsible tripod also. I actually get better pictures when using my tripod vs having the husband take them. He's such a lazy photographer. He doesn't check that my clothes are laying right. Won't tell me to adjust a wrinkle. And then half the time if we're at home we wants to sit down and take the picture. Me standing and looking down at him only accentuates my double chin. No thanks. I'll get my tripod.

Make that Mr HanPanda gets acquainted to going to the fountain. Make him your partner in your success in sewing. Tell him for instance how I admire his pics. In Dutch they say that you catch more flies with honey than with vinaigre. My Mr Quickie is now used at last to the idea that pictures in the garden are part of the process and the success, and I tell him that the community of PR is fond of our (in reality small) garden.

OMG YES!!!!!!!!!!!! uh...sir...you cannot sit down and point that camera up at me. That is horrendous. Absolutely horrendous!!!

He protested, in mock surprise, that he'd been "fired" as my photog and my daughter hired. He would take 2 dozen pics and none of them usable.
