My wife's hobby...
Posted By: davemdsn, 03-30-2008, 10:14 PM

She likes knitting like I like photography. Today she was photographing a couple of her pieces for her blog and I was some beautiful light coming from the window and landing on her pieces. Here is what I got. (Small plug for the K20 - this is 1000 ISO and the only PP is color correction, no noise reduction or alteration to DR)

It looks like she does nice work Dave,
I prefer the first pic, and think that the shadows in the second one make it too dark

Can you talk her into making you a custom camera case while she's at it
At least something for a lens.

Thanks Stu. A knitted, felted camera case would be a true original. She laughed when I mentioned it. lol

Looks like she does beautiful work, and you did a fine job of capturing it.

The fluffy bits work well with bokeh. So soft and tender. You instilled emotion into capturing this shot. ISO 1000 certainly surprises anyone who does not believe in low noise performance k20d

She does do very good work. She almost always has yarn in her hands. She has yarn and needle buying addictions and looks at "yarn porn" on the internet. It's a sickness, but a very useful one.

Thank you. I had actually forgotten that the ISO was at 1000. When I looked at the shadows at 100% I saw a little bit of noise so I checked the exif and got the surprise. Even the out of focus areas show no noise at 1:1, only the darker shadows.

Nice coloring, but it is a shame the DOF was not greater.

I didn't want larger DOF. In fact, I almost put on a prime so I could open up even further. My intention when I shot these was more about the light than the knitting and I thought the softness played well with the texture of the felting. I can see how others would like to see it sharper, though.

Thanks, Ash. For me the lighting was the real subject of this series. The K20 is working well for the way I like to shoot.
