Thanks Deepika and Lindsay!!! I know WHAT I want my final photos to look like, but I often don't know HOW to achieve that look (esp. w/ lighting). Thanks for the helpful information. I find a review so much more valuable with a decent photo!

Excellent article. Thank you, Lindsay. One of these days I really need to get a digital camera and learn how to use it. I've been putting this off for too long.

Hey everybody, if you have specific questions about taking photos of your work, feel free to post them here. Michael (the professional photographer I interviewed for this article) and I will review them and do our best to give you some constructive criticism. Please include a link to your photo(s) in question when possible. I'll post our responses during the week.

Thanks for reading my article, and now I'm off to shovel snow! (Just got a lot of the white stuff dumped on us here in NY.)

How do I take 10 pounds off, instead of adding it?

Seriously, this is a great article that I have printed and will post in my sewing room. WE all know great pictures when we see them, but they can be hard to pull off

Re Becca,
I hear ya! I've solved that problem by putting my garments on my skinny size 0 daughter and then pinning all the extra fabric in the back out of the camera's range. Cheating, I know....
