I attended Craft Victoria's fantastic annual Craft and Design as a Career seminar last Friday. Among the sea of ideas was Lucy Feagin's simple advice to photograph one's work on a white background, as it can then be used in any context. That was a relief to me, as I often find styling my shots a bit painful, knowing that the things I choose to surround my work with might put people off as often as they might draw them in. So a white background it is, although it does little to give a sense of scale. And in my case, I had so little light coming in through the windows on a rainy afternoon, that I had to blast the pictures up in Photoshop to a ridiculous degree. But I think that my photos are improving. Slowly.
