Natural light photos

Last year I wanted to get some better photos of a lot of my quilts, 20 year old ones all the way up to some new ones.  I brought 2 design walls (builders Styrofoam 1" thick covered with cotton flannel) up to my living room which has a huge window facing east.  As soon as the sun moved slightly to the south I could get really good photos with natural light.  I was preparing for my 'pages' which are on my right side bar at the top.  I decided to do a collage of the photos.  The scale of the different quilts is totally off, large ones are small, small ones are large, but the collage maker chooses that and then you can keep shuffling them until you get them in an order you like.

Natural light is definitely the best for quilts. I find that all the time. Which collage maker are you using?

Shelly said...

Hello Wanda, what a wonderful photo mosaic of all your works over 2 decades! Your ability to play with colors is so awe-inspiring. Very impressive!

Hi Wanda,

That's a great idea! I bet that looking at each quilt takes you back to where you were when you made it and what was going on in your life at the time. You've made some wonderful quilts!

I clicked on the collage and it made the picture bigger so I could see all the quilts better. I would be hard pressed to say which one I liked best. They are all so beautiful and colorful.

I'm glad you showed these on your blog. Have a good day!

I put the collage of quilts on my desk top background. Now I can study it and decide which I like best. How does one make a choice like that. They're all so wonderful.

Dang that is a pretty collage Wanda! Did you do that with Picasa?

Tell us more about 'builder's styrofoam' - does it come in standard sizes? is it easily obtainable? etc. thanks....
