Embroidery Project Contest Tips


5 Tips and Tricks for Photographing Your Embroidery Projects

1) Set the Scene

Rather than taking a photo of the project on its own, create a setting where the item might actually be found or used. You'll draw the judges attention and they'll be able to see how perfect the project fits into the real life. Here are a few staging ideas you're welcome to steal:

A) For pillows and blankets, try setting them on a couch or a neatly made bed.

B) Hang holiday decorations and create a feative space to match.

C) Set a table with your best dinnerware to show off napkins, napkin rings, table runners and more.

D) Enlist the help of friends and family to model clothes, bags and accessories.

2) Keep it Simple

It can be tempting to overdo it on the staging, but it's important to remember that you want the focus to be on your embroidery. Don't add TOO many props or you'll end up taking attention any from what matters most: Your Project!

3) Check Your Light

Good lighting can make all the difference when it comes to photographing your project. Even the best and brightest designs can be dulled by bad lighting. Try these tricks to get the best shot possible:

A) Daylight tends to look best so try to take your photos during the day with the blinds open.

B) Try taking photos with and without the flash to see what looks best.

C) Watch out for shadows! Don't let anything block your light.

4) Give Yourself Options

Once you've set the scene and your lighting is picture perfect, take all the photos you can. You can submit more than one for the contest so they won't go to waste. Try to get:

A) Close-ups of the embroidery.

B) Wider shots to show off the whole project.

C) Sever angles (above, straight-on, off to the side).
