At this time of year I feel I really struggle to take good photographs of my felt. Even waiting until the weekend doesn't really give much improvement. So I was interested when a link to photographing textiles was shared with me.
After reading this I began to start to understand the problem. White balance. The solution was to take control of the lighting by illuminating your pieces with 5000K lights bulbs. So I thought I'd give it a go.
First test , illuminated with natural light on a grey February day.
Retaken under the 5000K bulbs
You will have to take my word for it that these colours are more like reality.
So I also took some photos of my ongoing experiments to make bubbles in laminated fabric.
These piece both use silk , and test interfacing , plastic, iron on fabric print, PVA glue and fabric glue.
One silk and one cotton , mixed successes which is good as it allows for some more experimentation.
